Antonio Valencia and David Cotterill scored as Wigan claimed their third successive pre-season victory with a 2-1 win against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

The Latics boss Chris Hutchings named a strong line-up with new captain Mario Melchiot at right-back and fellow new arrivals Andreas Granqvist and Titus Bramble in central defence.

New £5.3million signing Jason Koumas also started while Leighton Baines made an appearance in the second half after earlier turning down a move to newly-promoted Sunderland.
