As the former Manchester City man and his team-mates prepare to face Everton in the televised clash at Boundary Park the 27-year-old paid tribute to Dickov, who oversaw a giantkilling victory over Liverpool in the previous round.

Just a week after the Latics enjoyed a stunning 3-2 victory against Brendan Rogers' men, Dickov departed the club after two and a half years in charge, leaving behind a squad who had developed a real connection with the former Arsenal man.

"There isn't a player in the squad who wasn't gutted when the gaffer left, he had a lot of respect for the lads and ultimately it was down to us," Croft said.

"Because it was our performances and our results that meant he left the club. "Hopefully we can get another good result against Everton like we did against Liverpool and dedicate it to him."
