Evatt’s men will be hoping to make amends for a 4-0 loss to the Latics back in October.
But in the bigger picture, Wanderers will be aiming for three points to keep the League One play-off places in sight in the final month of the season as they start a crucial run of three games in eight days.
Wigan – back from a training break in Dubai – are chasing automatic promotion and could go top of the table with a 13th home win of the campaign.
Quotes from the managers:
Ian Evatt: “We feel like we were embarrassed here against Wigan earlier on in the season.
“That wasn’t us. We had a lot of injuries on the day and were punished accordingly but we want to set the record straight.
“We’re better than that, we’ve evolved as a team since then and we’re really excited for the game on Saturday.
“We’re still in with a shout. It’s a very small shout, but we’ve still got one.
“We have to try and win all seven games and that starts on Saturday.”
Wigan manager Leam Richardson: “Derby days are fantastic for the supporters and the players.
“I’ve been fortunate to work at both clubs. I had a great time at Bolton Wanderers to help them get promoted to the Premier League, to now working at Wigan where I’ve been for a few years.
“Fingers crossed we can continue to make those small steps forward to be in that place where we want to be.”
