Latics travel over the hill to Horwich on Friday night to face local rivals Bolton Wanderers in what could be a blood and thunder local derby, the man charged with keeping the peace on the pitch is Northumberland official Scott Duncan.
This will be his first Latics game this season, though he had us twice in 2013/14, he was in charge of our trip to the New Den back in December when we lost to Millwall, that day he issued two yellow cards Andy Keogh of Millwall and Latics defender Stephen Crainey, he was at the DW Stadium in March for our home win over Watford, booking Martyn Waghorn and three Watford players.
This is Scott Duncan’s third season as a Football League ref following his promotion to the National List at the start of the 2012/13 season.

The crew are joined in the studio this evening by dad and lad duo Stuart and Adam, Stuart is a Bolton season ticket holder, whilst Adam is a Latics season ticket holder, a tense time in their household this week!
We start off this edition though with a look back at the pulsating draw with Fulham and the disappointing defeat away at Brighton, what a shocker of a season this is turning into.
We have a good chat with Stuart about Friday nights visit to Bolton and get the lowdown on Neil Lennon, squad rotation at the Macron and who we should be wary of.
