Match Preview

Richards boost for City Manchester City defender Micah Richards could make his first appearance of the season in the Capital One Cup third-round tie against Wigan. Richards has missed the start of the season with hamstring trouble but was an unused substitute in the weekend derby win against Manchester United. Midfielder Jack Rodwell missed that game with a knock and could be doubtful while playmaker David Silva (thigh) and defender Gael Clichy (thigh) continue to be assessed. Changes are probable with the likes of Joleon Lescott, James Milner and Stevan Jovetic pushing for places. City make a quick return to action against the Latics, who were their conquerors in last season's FA Cup final. Much has changed since the Wembley clash in May with both clubs having changed managers and City having spent more than B#90million on new players while Wigan were relegated to the Championship. Richards did not play in the cup final but sees the latest tie as an opportunity to put its memory firmly in the past. The 25-year-old told the club's website: "I wasn't involved against Wigan, but there was definitely something lacking. "Wigan have always played us well and have been a bit of a bogey team, but I would never say the guys weren't up for it because we always want to win, but I just felt they wanted it more on the day. "That game is in the past now but we have to make sure we put things right in this game and try and progress in the competition." Meanwhile, Owen Coyle claims there will be no bluffing from him as he selects a Wigan XI for the third time in six days. Victory in the FA Cup ensured Latics' qualification for the Europa League, their first ever experience of a major continental tournament, which somewhat eased the pain of relegation from the Premier League just three days later. Coyle therefore knew that when he took the reins at the DW Stadium this summer he would have to negotiate a demanding fixture list. Last Thursday a Wigan team featuring seven changes were in Belgium where they drew 0-0 with Zulte Waregem and, with Coyle then opting to bring in four fresh faces for Sunday's 2-0 win over Ipswich, the former Bolton boss suggests he has been left with little choice but to shuffle his pack once more against City. "If you were going to equate it to poker we've not been dealt a great hand," said Coyle. "But that's been dictated by TV and we're not exactly thrilled about it, but we need to get on with it. "Any game I enter in to I want to win but we're playing against an elite club, not only in English football but in European football, one of the favourites for the Champions League, never mind the Premier League, and we're asked to go there after one day's rest and try and win that cup tie. "There's no mistaking I will make numerous changes for that game on Tuesday night."
