Latics have signed Bolton Wanderers midfielder Luke Woodland on a one-month emergency youth loan. Woodland is 19 years of age and has yet to feature in a first team game but he will go straight into today's squad to face Barnsley.
Caretaker manager Dean Holdsworth said, "Luke has impressed me every time I have watched him play. He's technically gifted with an excellent range of passing but also enjoys the defensive side of the game. Luke has a real desire to improve his game and crucially he has a fantastic attitude which is key to learning."
