Paul Dickov is looking forward to welcoming back Kieran Lee after the defender was handed an immediate return to Boundary Park.

Full-back Lee ended a four-year association with Latics by joining Sheffield Wednesday last month and Thursday morning's Capital One Cup first-round draw paired the two sides together.

"It's amazing how things work out," Dickov told his club's official website. "I am sure he will get a fantastic reception from the fans and players.

"Once kick-off time arrives though that will be forgotten as we will be going all out to win the game."

Dickov is relishing a tough assignment against a Wednesday side who beat Oldham twice last year on their way to promotion from npower League One.

"It's a tough draw, but a great tie for us," he added. "We couldn't have had a tougher first game of the season, but it is a challenge we will rise to and there will be a big crowd at Boundary Park."
