Owen Coyle expects an entertaining encounter when Burnley meet Wigan on Saturday in the Barclays Premier League.
In Coyle and Latics boss Roberto Martinez, the match will bring together a pair of old friends that have developed into two of the top flight's most promising young managers.
Having accrued 12 and 10 points respectively after nine league matches, both Burnley and Wigan have prospered against the odds so far this season with their attacking brands of football.
Coyle told Press Association Sport: "I expect there to be a lot of players on the park that will have a positive influence, in terms of trying to do something in the game that excites and pleases the crowd and that will be entertaining.
"At the same time, it will be within the work ethic that you have to help your team.
"I have no doubt that both teams will be going all out to win the match and we have to make sure we are at our very best."
