The centre-back, who hails from nearby Walsall, was in the Blackpool side who needed a replay and then extra-time to beat Moors in the same competition back in 2018.
And he’s determined Latics won’t suffer the same fate as 12 months ago, when local rivals Chorley sent them packing at the first stage.
“Having played non-league myself, I know Solihull will be approaching the game like a cup final,” he said.
Wigan manager Leam Richardson is expected to ring the changes for the first-ever meeting with Solihull Moors in the first round of the FA Cup at the DW Stadium on Saturday.
Latics go into the tie on the back of consecutive wins over Burton and Fleetwood which have lifted them to the top of Sky Bet League One but they will be wary of their non-league opponents after losing to local rivals Chorley at the same stage 12 months ago.
Richardson must decide whether to play forward duo James McClean and Will Keane who have been called up by the Republic of Ireland for their forthcoming internationals.
