Penney relishing daunting fixture list

18 February 2010 05:15
The Latics face trips to third-placed Colchester and second-placed Leeds before hosting leaders Norwich at Boundary Park next weekend.

Penney's men are perilously placed just above the relegation zone but he is relishing the prospect of facing the division's leading sides.

Ahead of Saturday's trip to Colchester, Penney he said: "We always knew it would be a really tough week against the teams which are third, second and first.

"They are tests that players should thrive on because they are big games played in front of big crowds, and they ought to enjoy them.

"These three games ought to provider a barometer as to where we are in terms of our development."
