ROBERTO Martinez will ring the changes for tonight’s Capital One Cup clash at Nottingham Forest.

But the Wigan boss insists he is taking both the game and the competition deadly seriously.

Latics fell at the first hurdle to lower-division opposition in both domestic cups last term – a Carling Cup defeat at Crystal Palace was followed by an even more humiliating FA Cup loss at League Two outfit Swindon.

Martinez will persist with his rotation policy for tonight’s trip to the City Ground, and he’s confident those selected are more than capable of getting the job done.

He said: “I wouldn’t call it experimenting – but it is a great opportunity for us to share out the demands of the schedule with as many players as possible.”
