Match : Wigan vs Southampton
Competition : England – FA Cup
Time / Date : 15:30h / 18 March 2018
Venue : DW Stadium
Wigan have nothing to fear when they welcome Southampton on Sunday after eliminating Manchester City in the last round. The League One side have only lost two of their last 22 matches in all competitions.
Southampton aren’t having such a successful season. Manager Mauricio Pellegrino has finally been sacked and replaced with former Stoke boss Mark Hughes, who now hopes to guide his new club away from the relegation zone. They currently sit 17th in the table, one point above the danger zone and involved in a very widely contested relegation battle.
Southampton have won just 21% of their last 14 competitive away days.
Maya Yoshida (Knee injury), Charlie Austin (Hamstring Injury)
These two sides met in the 2012/13 Premier League season, with Wigan winning one and drawing one of their two games against Southampton.
Wigan have kept eight clean sheets in their last 10 home matches, which does not bode well for a Southampton side that struggles to score. Can Wigan’s FA Cup dream continue?
