Latics' quarter-final goal

DAVID Jones insists Wigan will take nothing for granted in their League Cup fourth-round clash against League Two Bradford this evening.

The Latics will be hot favourites to reach the quarter-finals for the second time in three seasons, with their opponents playing in the bottom tier of the Football League.

But Bradford have made a good start to the season, winning seven of their opening 15 league games, while their cup scalps have included Notts County and Watford.

Midfielder Jones said: "I don't think we can complain about how we've performed in the last two rounds.

"We'll go into this one as favourites but we're expecting a really tough game because it's a chance of an upset for them, and obviously they've done well to get to this stage.

"I'm sure they'll pose a lot of problems, different problems than we face on a Saturday. And we don't know what team the manager will put out.

"In the previous rounds, players who haven't started in the league as much have been coming in and playing in the cup so if he does the same you don't know how the team's going to come together."
