LATICS boss Uwe Rosler has named his starting XI to face Nottingham Forest at the DW Stadium tonight.

The German revealed earlier today that he told his players yesterday who would be facing Stuart Pearce’s high-flying side.

There’s a welcome return for Callum McManaman who hobbled off against Ipswich Town last Monday and missed the trip to Bournemouth on Saturday.

Rob Kiernan, who has featured heavily this season, doesn’t make the bench while James McClean, William Kvist and Andy Delort all come in with Adam Forshaw and Marc-Antoine Fortune dropping to the bench. Martyn Waghorn is another of Saturday’s starters who also doesn’t make the bench.

Latics starting XI: Carson, Taylor, Ramis, McClean, Huws, McManaman, Boyce, Cowie, Perch, Kvist, Delort

Subs: Al Habsi, Tavernier, Riera, Maloney, Barnett, Forshaw, Fortune
