Latics face Brighton at the DW Stadium on Saturday, down the years the two clubs have met a total of 13 times and things are pretty even.

The first meeting was back in 1987, 20th October to be exact, a Tuesday night game in front of 2,392 hardy souls at Springfield Park, but they witnessed a great game that ended in a 3-3 draw with Mark Hilditch and Chris Thompson (2) on target for the Latics, the result kept both sides in mid-table.
