Uwe Rosler takes charge of Wigan for the first time vowing his players will do everything they can to try to qualify for the knockout stages.

The Latics take on Maribor in Slovenia this evening knowing that, like their opponents, only victory coupled with defeat for Zulte Waregem against Group D winners Rubin Kazan would see them progress.

Wigan had been in a good position in their first European campaign after beating Maribor at the DW Stadium and then holding Rubin to a draw but a home defeat to Zulte two weeks ago put the Belgians in pole position.

It was one of three defeats in a week for the FA Cup winners that spelled the end of Owen Coyle’s reign after less than six months in charge and chairman Dave Whelan looking to Rosler.
