BENNY Couto misses out for Latics against Harrogate Town this afternoon due to injury.

The left back started the midweek Papa John's Trophy game at home to Leeds United Under 21s but was withdrawn at half-time.

Head coach Keith Curle later revealed the teenager had been unwell, and Couto was later diagnosed with tonsillitis.

Fit-again Jack Stobbs returns to the starting line-up in place of Couto, after impressing on his comeback in midweek.

Latics XI: Jayson Leutwiler, Jordan Clarke, Harrison McGahey, Carl Piergianni, Callum Whelan, Hallam Hope, Davis Keillor-Dunn, Dylan Fage, Jack Stobbs, Raphael Diarra, Dylan Bahamboula.

Subs: Kacper Danielewicz, Zak Dearnley, Jamie Bowden, Vani Da Silva, Faysal Bettache, Harry Vaughan, Joe Edwards
