PRE-MATCH BUILD UP

A trip to AFC Bournemouth of the Premier League awaits tonight’s winner, with AFC Fylde visiting the DW Stadium for the first time in their history as Paul Cook and his Latics side aim to knock out Dave Challinor’s Coasters at the second attempt.

The former Tranmere Rovers team mates met head on 12 days ago in the opening fixture of the Emirates FA Cup second round, but Latics couldn’t overcome their National League opponents on a historic evening at Fylde’s Mill Farm, with Will Grigg’s first half opener cancelled out by Danny Rowe’s second half spot kick.

Giving little away in terms of team selection, Latics assistant manager Leam Richardson is confident that whoever lines up come kick off, Latics will be capable of getting the job done.

“We are fortunate that we have a good squad and we have good players that, as you have seen through the season, can go in and play in any kind of unit and position and play well.”

FORM GUIDE – LAST SIX (ALL COMPETITIONS)

Latics - LLWWDW
AFC Fylde - WLWWDL



Latics made it three straight league wins on Saturday.

CONNECTIONS

There are three current connections between the two teams and all three play their football at Mill Farm.

Midfielder Lewis Montrose was a trainee and latterly young professional with Latics in the early 2000s, making two senior appearances for the club.  Fellow ex-Latics young pro Josh Langley, son of Latics legend Kevin Langley, is Fylde’s club captain, but will be missing for the rest of the season due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury.  Defender Luke Burke is on loan with the Coasters from Latics and will also miss the cup tie due to a clause in his loan agreement.

Former Latics Development Squad forward and ex-Republic of Ireland youth international Matty Hamilton was on loan at Fylde in February 2015, and his old team mate Ryan Jennings spent a brief spell at Mill Farm in September 2016.

Wigan Athletic Community Trust coach and current Chester FC forward Craig Mahon spent time on loan at Fylde following his formative years at Latics as a trainee and young pro, but perhaps the most high-profile player to play for both sides is Stephen Crainey.

The Scottish defender was a fan-favourite during his time at the DW Stadium in 2013-14, before arriving at Fylde in 2015-16 via Fleetwood Town.

MATCH REPORT: WIGAN ATHLETIC 3 - 2 AFC FYLDE

12 December 2017

Latics will face AFC Bournemouth in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.

  • Match report: Wigan Athletic v AFC Fylde.
  • Goals from Ivan Toney and Will Grigg (x2) see Latics through.
  • Paul Cook's men will now face Premier League opposition in the next round.

Wigan Athletic progressed to the third round of the Emirates FA Cup with victory over AFC Fylde at the DW Stadium this evening.

Latics went ahead on 31 minutes through Ivan Toney as he met Callum Elder’s inviting cross at the back post to slot past keeper Jay Lynch.

The Coasters equalised nine minutes later when Simon Grand fired past Matija Sarkic after a goalmouth scramble inside the box.

Danny Rowe turned the game on its head in the second half with a deflected strike, but substitute Will Grigg netted twice late on to ensure victory.

Having beaten fellow Fylde Coast outfit Fleetwood on home soil on Saturday afternoon, manager Paul Cook made eight changes for the visit of Dave Challinor’s side.

Good early work from Gavin Massey down the right presented Toney with the first chance of the game, but the striker on loan from Newcastle United was denied by Lynch.

In response, Coasters frontman Danny Rowe headed Sam Finley’s cross over Sarkic’s bar before testing the Montenegrin with a strike from distance.

A well worked corner from Latics just before the half hour mark nearly resulted in the first goal as Dan Burn’s neat flick at the front post went just over.

The opener did come moments later though when Elder’s low cross from the left found Toney at the back post who tapped in from close range.

The Coasters were level before the interval when Grand capitalised on a goal mouth scramble and smashed the ball home inside the area.

Latics looked to regain the advantage after the break, with David Perkins seeing an effort blocked on the edge of the area and Toney was denied Lynch.

Gary Roberts was later thwarted by some last ditch defending, while Will Grigg was brought on for Ryan Colclough on the hour as Cook switched his options in attack.

Challinior's side took the lead for the first time in the game on 65 minutes as Rowe's deflected strike from the edge of the area looped over Sarkic.

Max Power looked for a way back into the tie for Latics, firing narrowly wide of Lynch's near post from 20 yards.

Rowe and Jonny Smith both had opportunities to extend the lead for the visitors, but Sarkic was equal to their efforts.

Grigg found the net with 10 minutes to go as Roberts slipped the ball into his path and he calmly beat Lynch from a tight angle.

And Grigg struck again before the end when he found the net inside the area.

Latics: Sarkic, Byrne, Elder, Perkins, Power, Toney, Massey (Hunt 73), Bruce, Roberts (Dunkley 87), Colclough (Grigg 61), Burn (Capt).

Subs not used: Evans,Thomas, Burgess, Merrie.

AFC Fylde: Lynch, Montrose, Francis-Angol, Tunnicliffe, Bond (Blinkhorn 85), Finley (Capt), Rowe, Grand, Richards, Smith, Ezewele (Muldoon 54).

Subs not used: R.Taylor, J.Taylor, McCready, Tasdemir, Jones.
