Wigan boss Leam Richardson has been in the news this week, receiving praise from striker Charlie Wyke after being credited with saving the life of his player after a cardiac arrest.
From Richardson’s perspective, however, he will want focus to firmly turn back towards their efforts on the pitch with Wigan enjoying a fine campaign on all fronts.
Although progress was made in the EFL Trophy earlier this week, Richardson will be more eager for promotion and an FA Cup run, both of which are in the club’s grasps.
Wigan needed a replay to overcome Solihull Moors in the first round, but momentum was maintained with the North-West outfit having now gone eight games without defeat in all competitions.
Thirteen points have also been collected in the league, Will Keane continuing his excellent season with a goal and an assist during the important triumph over Plymouth Argyle last weekend.
Having made 10 alterations for the EFL Trophy tie at Accrington Stanley, Richardson should revert back to the Wigan XI from the win over Plymouth.
Despite getting on the scoresheet in midweek, Stephen Humphrys will almost certainly only be named among the replacements.
The likes of Gavin Massey and Tom Bayliss are also in line to stay on the substitutes’ bench.
Mullins made less changes for their EFL Trophy game at Swindon, Colchester producing another solid display to run out 2-1 victors.
Nevertheless, Sunday’s team will be similar to the one which earned a point versus Newport County last week, with Alan Judge an alternative in midfield.

Charlie Daniels should also be restored at left-back after remaining as an unused substitute in midweek.
