A group of Latics-supporting chefs from the DW Stadium and Wrightington Hotel and Country Club will be at The Emirates Stadium on Saturday to cheer on Wigan Athletic as they take on Arsenal in the Barclays Premier League – but only after enjoying a special visit to the famous ‘Soccer AM` couch.

The group of Chefs, headed by the DW Stadium`s Mark Holdsworth, are guests of the cult Sky One show, broadcast every Saturday morning and hosted by Helen Chamberlain and Max Rushden.

Mark and his mates will be hooking up with all the regulars on the show, Tubes, The Soccerettes, Rocket, and Baby Elvis, and Mark came down to the Latics Training Ground this week to wish the players all the best for the big game on Saturday.

“It`s going to be a great day for us, no matter what happens on the pitch,’ he said, ‘but it would be absolutely fantastic to come away from the Emirates with a win!!”

Also in the party will be David Holdsworth, Mike Green, Peter Kenyon, Geoffrey Unsworth, Matt Owen, Dan Cottam and Ross Atherton
