Oldham midfielder James Wesolowski hopes to make his first trip to Wembley, if his side can reach the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final.

The Latics face Bradford City in the area semi-final on Tuesday.

"I think there is three more games and you can get to Wembley so it's pretty exciting stuff," the 24-year-old told BBC Radio Manchester.

"It would be good for the fans, they've been brilliant this year, so it would something we could repay them with."

Wesolowski has featured 21 times for Oldham, scoring four goals, since joining from Peterborough in the summer.

The former Australia-Under 20 international began his career at Leicester, where he had a four-year spell with the Foxes.

Oldham spirit 'top quality'- Wesolowski

After loan spells at Cheltenham, Dundee and Hamilton he joined Peterborough in 2010 and played 39 times last season as they won promotion to the Championship by beating Huddersfield in the play-off final at Old Trafford.

Having already experienced promotion from League One, the midfielder is hopeful of a second successive one with the Latics.

"I think the key in League One is if you can get a run of games where you're playing good football with consistency, and not losing, then I think you can start to move up the league and progress in cups," he said.

"I think we're seeing that at the moment. We're starting to play our best football, the lads are starting to gel as a team and if we can keep that going we can probably do some good things this year.

"The spirit in the changing room is top quality, there are no big egos everyone is down to earth.

"We all get on really well which helps us on the pitch as well. Everyone has got that mutual respect for each other and if someone says something to someone that person listens."
