A hostile atmosphere awaits Yanic Wildschut, his name is booed after being read out over the tannoy.
City 4-4-2 tonight. We're moments away. COYY!
City set to shoot away from their own fans in this opening half, they're to our left.
City go into their traditional pre-match huddle. Time to make it four from four!
Wigan do likewise and we're all set! The hosts to get us underway.
1 - Wigan get us underway, giving City a throw inside three seconds not far into the visitors' half.
1 - Coming together in the air sees Wigan awarded a free-kick. They throw men forward, suggesting this will be pumped long into the box.
1 - City do enough to clear and look to break before being held up on the left.
2 - Quite a lively start to this one. Dijks hurls a throw long without seeming to put much effort into it. Could be a real weapon at some stage that, not just tonight.
3 - Martin lofts down the right for Jerome. City collect the scraps in midfield before being forced back, eventually conceding a throw on halfway.
4 - Warnock hooks forward for Wigan, with the Latics carving out space on the left for a cross. Cleared away, with the hosts getting a throw which is taken quickly.
4 - Weir chests down a cross in the box. Bogle looks to race onto it but Ruddy is alert to smother. Early warning sign, there.
5 - City try to move down the right, winning two throws in quick succession in advances positions.
5 - Cheap corner to the away side now as Oliveira scraps against two defenders before the ball bounces behind.
6 - Pritchard drills to Mulumbu on the edge of the box. He tries his luck first time but can't make a clean connection.
6 - Play halted with Warnock down in the box after colliding with Jerome. Head injury, which he's now being treated for.
7 - Chance for both sides to regroup here as Warnock moves to the side of the pitch. That's some early additional time for later on.
8 - Wigan give the ball back to City. Ruddy restarts by playing short to Klose, who in turn goes long to get City a throw in home territory.
8 - Nothing quite made of it, however. Wigan's ball.
8 - Another corner to City as Dijks almost literally walks through his man with a block challenge before crossing. Headed behind.
9 - Taken short before being sent across the box. Mulumbu again shoots but it's charged down.
9 - Unlucky from Jerome as he chases a long pass forward. Indecision in the Wigan ranks threatens to provide him with an opening but he's unfortunate to see the ball ultimately go out of play for a goal-kick.
10 - Bit scrappy this game so far. City just starting to create a little bit in central areas though.
11 - Oliveira sent to ground on the right flank. No foul given. Wigan's throw.
11 - Excellent from Mulumbu to nip in front of his man and shield the ball towards a colleague. Wigan's throw just shy of halfway. Game lacking rhythm.
12 - Wigan advance to earn another in City's half now, on the left. Howson wins it and City clear only for handball to seemingly be given against Jerome on halfway.
13 - Wigan move it forward quickly, with Bogle collecting in space inside the area. He shoots low with Ruddy adjusting himself to divert the ball over for a corner. Good save.
13 - The ball is headed back into a dangerous area for City but Burn flicks some way over. Goal-kick to the Canaries.
14 - Power turns and shifts the ball right. Bogle knocked off it and Oliveira moves over halfway before threading forward, with the ball scuttling through to the Wigan goalkeeper.
15 - The Latics look to move it back to the other end at pace. Ruddy picks up.
15 - Pritchard starting to look lively here. Drifting into pockets of space.
16 - Oliveira crosses into the box looking for Jerome. Unable to strike the ball cleanly, allowing Haugaard to pick up.
16 - Wigan again go direct but too much on it as the ball flies behind for a goal-kick.
17 - Wildschut offside from Howson's pass to the left. Met by a chorus of boos.
@PaulH: Bit scratchy so far. Neither side have totally settled really.
18 - Pinto climbs, heading out for a Wigan throw. Warnock crosses. City clear to halfway where Wigan start again.
