PRE-MATCH BUILD UP

AFC Bournemouth arrive at the DW Stadium off the back of their first ever win against Arsenal on Sunday, when Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe combined to shoot down the Gunners 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium.

For Latics it’s a second consecutive game at the DW Stadium in the space of four days, having drawn 0-0 against Peterborough United on Saturday in Sky Bet League One.

Eddie Howe’s Premier League Cherries came from 2-0 down against Latics in the reverse fixture, only securing the replay deep into stoppage time through Steve Cook’s header, after Lys Mousset had cut the deficit earlier in the second half.

Early goals from Will Grigg and a deflected Nick Powell free kick had the hosts rocked at the Vitality Stadium, but Latics were left heart-broken, especially after a late penalty claim from Ivan Toney was turned down.

Defender Reece James says the team are even more determined to cause an upset this time around.

You can catch up with Reece in the official match day programme.

TEAM NEWS


Latics are without new signing James Vaughan as the striker is cup-tied following a 16-minute appearance for Sunderland against Middlesbrough.

Speaking in his pre-match press call on Tuesday, assistant manager Leam Richardson said Jamie Walker’s injury is likely to be days rather than weeks, with the former Hearts forward returning to training earlier than expected.

Shaun MacDonald remains side-lined with a knee injury confirmed by Paul Cook last week.

For Bournemouth it’s a case of no Tyrone Mings or Jermain Defoe due to long-term problems, and Eddie Howe is unlikely to risk Josh King and Junior Stanislas who have been in light training.

Latics’ last home victory over the Cherries was emphatic, a 3-0 win in January 2014 which saw Marc-Antoine Fortune and Jordi Gomez hit the target either side of an Elliott Ward own goal.

MATCH REPORT: WIGAN ATHLETIC 3 - 0 AFC BOURNEMOUTH

17 January 2018

Magnificent Latics put three past the Cherries at the DW Stadium.

  • Match Report: Wigan Athletic 3-0 AFC Bournemouth.
  • Samy Morsy, Dan Burn and Callum Elder were all on target.
  • Latics to play host to West Ham United in the next round.

Wigan Athletic progressed to the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup this evening as they comprehensively beat Barclays Premier League side AFC Bournemouth at the DW Stadium.

Captain Samy Morsy gave Latics the lead inside the first 10 minutes when the ball fell to him in the area and he beat Boruc with a low finish into the bottom corner.

Substitute Dan Burn extended the margin moments after coming on in the second half when he turned Max Power’s dangerous cross in off the underside of the bar.

Left back Callum Elder put the tie beyond doubt with 15 minutes remaining as he scored his first goal for the club with a looping header past Boruc.

There were six changes to the team that drew at home to Peterborough at the weekend, with Jamie Jones, Alex Bruce, Elder, David Perkins, Gary Roberts and Ryan Colclough all starting.

An even start to proceedings, Paul Cook’s men had the first real attempt when Gavin Massey broke forward and forced Boruc into a low save from distance.

Latics went ahead soon after through Morsy who slotted home confidently in the box as the ball rebounded to him from Boruc’s initial stop from Will Grigg.

In reply, Ryan Fraser bent a free kick from 25 yards over Jones’ goal, while Lys Mousset saw an effort deflected inside the area as the visitors were restricted to half chances.

Benik Afobe then went close with a glancing header from Fraser’s free kick, but Jones was alert to the danger and dived well to his right to deny the frontman.

Colclough was causing the Cherries problems down the left and shot off target before the break, while at the other end Afobe’s header was held by Jones.

Eddie Howe’s outfit started the second period strongly, with Fraser forcing Jones into a good save at his near post and Perkins blocking well from Connor Mahoney.

Latics later went close to doubling their advantage through Colclough, who broke into the area and shot narrowly wide of the far post from a tight angle.

Afobe was Bournemouth’s main attacking threat and wasted a golden opportunity midway through the half when he dragged an effort wide after being played in on goal.

Burn made it two for Latics almost immediately after coming on as a substitute when he turned Power’s cross in off the underside of the bar from close range.

Power was the architect once again for the home side’s third goal in the 76th minute as he provided a cross for Elder to loop a header past Boruc at the back post.

Latics were brilliant and fully deserved their win which will see them take on top flight opposition again in the fourth round when they welcome the Hammers to the DW Stadium.

Wigan Athletic: Jones; Power, Bruce, Dunkley, Elder; Perkins, Morsy; Massey, Roberts (Jacobs 86), Colclough (Burn 71); Grigg (Hunt 51).

Subs not used: Walton, Byrne, Powell, James.

AFC Bournemouth: Boruc; Cook, Surman (Taylor 87), Pugh, Arter, Afobe, Daniels, Mahoney (Ibe 63), Fraser (Hyndman 78), Mousset, Simpson.

Subs not used: Federici, Butcher, Hobson, Ndjoli.
