I GOOD LUCK 'LATICS'

Before I look at tonight's game I would like to acknowledge your tremendous support at Burnley.

There were 1,700 of you at Turf Moor and the noise you generated was unbelievable - certainly the best since I have been here - and we

were very appreciative of your

I was slightly disappointed we didn't collect all three points but, in view of the serious injury troubles, it wasn't a bad result. Mark Innis, another of our highly promising young players, made his debut at Burnley and had a good game slotting in well on the left.

I am hoping one or two of the injured players might be back tonight

although, at the time of writing, I cannot say anything definitely.

I received a lot of letters after the Grimsby game which is what I expected. The writers all said they were embarrassed, and it was an

embarrassment to me. Maybe I was to blame as I said beforehand I am not a lover of cup competitions, and that may have rubbed off on the team.

The way in which the glayers have resrnnA-'l

100 per cent and we have deserved our draws at Luton and Burnley. One of the letter writers pointed out I had a cheek to take the players over to the fans at the end of the match at Grimsby. The reason I did this was because you stuck behind us throughout and were even chopping and cheering at the final whistle when you had every reason to have a go. You deserved a round of applause on such an abysmal night and that was why it was done. Injuries meant we were running out of 'keepers which is why I took Michael Pollitt from Notts County on loan and he has done well on his two games so far.

I had the opportunity to sign a couple of First Division 'keepers but

plumped to give him a chance, which he has taken. The fact we were so short of midfield players had a huge bearing on

offering Tommy Wright a one-month contract. He can play on either flank and he is full of enthusiasm which is what we want. Preston have invested heavily on players and made a good start showing why they are one of the favourites for promotion.

season. Gary Peters has a large squad, so much so that he was able to field completely different line-ups in their first two games on the lsle of Man. They have too many good players for me to pick out individuals. Suffice to say we know it will be our toughest test so far as was shown when they inflictedWatford's first defeat a week last Saturday.

I welcome the fact the game has been delayed for three days as it

We will have our largest attendancetonight with Preston likely to have a massivefollowing for the short trip. Once again I ask you to stretch your vocal chords and get behind us. It does have an impact and I am sure it spurred us on to get the winning goal against Bournemouth in our last game here. I would like to request that both sets of supporters behave impeccably so that the newspaper reports feature events on the field as opposed to off it. Finally I would like to congratulatethe youngsters who have done so well against Leicester, Port Vale and Middlesbroughin the Pontins League. Leicester included eight established Premiership players in their side and to beat them was an incredible result which augers well for the future.

MANY HAPPY RETURNS DAVID!

-.

David Cross pulled a Lat~cssh~rton for the =-,

f~rsttime in 13 years when the club held

photocall recently. David has rejoined the club as Assistant Youth Coach alongside Bill Urmson. David, standing at 6'2", started his career with Rochdale FC in 1969 before going on to play with Norwich City, Coventry City, West Bromwich Albion, West Ham United, Manchester City, Latics, Vancouver Whitecaps, Bolton Wanderers, Bury and finally Blackpool. Now Dave has returned to what he describes as "the friendliest club in the Football League" and hopes to build Latics' Youth team and 'A' & 'B' sides into a force to be reconed with, over David's 17 year

professional career, he played 553 games scoring 195 goals along the way. If Dave can pass on some of that experience, the lads are sure not to go wrong!
