Match : Wigan vs Southampton

Competition : England – FA Cup

Time / Date : 15:30h / 18 March 2018

Venue : DW Stadium

Wigan

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

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.

Missing players

Wigan Athletic

Southampton FC
Maya Yoshida (Knee injury), Charlie Austin (Hamstring Injury)

Head-to-head

These two sides met in the 2012/13 Premier League season, with Wigan winning one and drawing one of their two games against Southampton.

Prediction

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?
