Owen Coyle eyes big European tie

Owen Coyle reveals that a potential tie with a big European team will be Wigan Athletic's motivation when they take to the field against Zulte Waregem this evening.

Owen Coyle has said that the prospect of drawing a European heavyweight in the knockout stage of the Europa League is all the motivation Wigan Athletic need ahead of tonight's clash with Zulte Waregem.

The Latics are second in Group D, one point ahead of the Belgian outfit - meaning that victory at the DW Stadium this evening will see them into the last 32.

"The incentive is there not only for ourselves but also Zulte Waregem," the Scot told reporters. "It could be a Milan, an Ajax, a Napoli - there's going to be some fantastic teams coming out of the Champions League never mind the quality that's already in the Europa League.

"For us to be able to reach that 32 would be a great achievement but we're going to have to go and earn it. This is a very good side, very attack-minded, they've got some terrific players.

"After four games in the group we were disappointed to lose our unbeaten European record last time out in Kazan. We want to get going again and the players have shown they're very much up for the challenge."

This year's FA Cup winners travel to Maribor for their final fixture.
