PRE-MATCH BUILD UP

Latics head into Saturday's game against West Ham United on a 14-match unbeaten run in all competitions, including four Emirates FA Cup clashes, twice each against AFC Fylde and AFC Bournemouth in the previous two rounds.

The Hammers are also on an impressive run of seven matches unbeaten, winning three times, including their 1-0 extra time victory over Latics' Sky Bet League One promotion rivals in a third round replay at the London Stadium.

Despite there being 33 teams between Latics and West Ham, Paul Cook's men are confident in their ability to shock a second Premier League outfit in a row following their 3-0 replay win against the Cherries in round three.

Speaking to the official match day programme for the fixture, Ryan Colclough said:

“West Ham are in the Premier League for a reason, whether they’ve got injuries or not they’ll come today with strength in depth.

“There’s a real togetherness and everybody wants to achieve the same thing, we want to win and going into this game everyone believes that we can.”

MATCH REPORT: WIGAN ATHLETIC 2-0 WEST HAM UNITED

27 January 2018

Outstanding Latics beat the Hammers at the DW Stadium.

  • Match Report: Wigan Athletic 2-0 West Ham United.
  • Latics beat Premier League opposition for second time this season.
  • Will Grigg has six goals to his name in this year's Emirates FA Cup.

A double from Will Grigg secured Wigan Athletic’s passage into the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup as they beat West Ham United at the DW Stadium this afternoon.

Latics went ahead as early as the seventh minute when Grigg met Nathan Byrne’s excellently weighted cross to head past Joe Hart and into the top corner.

The Hammers were reduced to ten men at the start of the second period when Masuaku was shown a straight red card for an altercation with Nick Powell.

Former Latic Reece Burke was then penalised for handling in the area just after the hour and Grigg made no mistake from the spot to double the advantage.

Paul Cook made one change to the side that beat Plymouth Argyle last weekend, with Callum Elder playing instead of Reece James at left back.

Backed by a vociferous support, Latics made a dream start as a sublime cross from Byrne found in-form Grigg who headed powerfully past Hart at his near post.

The ball was in the net for a second time soon after as Chey Dunkley bundled home from close range, but the linesman had raised his flag for offside.

Cook’s side were well and truly on top during the opening exchanges, and Powell went close to doubling the advantage on the quarter hour mark but blasted just over.

Byrne and Grigg combined again later in the half, with the former’s cross from the right hand side nodded just wide by the Northern Ireland international.

The right back then had a chance of his own when he burst into the area and shot at goal, but he was denied by a vital challenge from Angelo Ogbonna.

Latics were indebted to captain Samy Morsy just before the break when he twice denied Reece Oxford and Josh Cullen inside the box.

Masuaku was given his marching orders by the referee at the start of the second period after an altercation with Powell.

Grigg doubled his tally for the afternoon on the hour when he beat Hart from the penalty spot after Burke had handled in the area.

Latics were showing no fear against their Premier League opponents and were continuing to force the initiative, with Dan Burn seeing an effort blocked well on the edge of the box.

Powell went close to adding a third in the 75th minute but Byrne’s low cross just evaded him in the area.

Cook’s men saw the game out in a professional manner and were given a standing ovation for another outstanding display by the home faithful at the full time whistle.

Wigan Athletic: Walton; Byrne, Elder (James 85), Burn, Dunkley; Morsy (Capt), Power; Massey (Colclough 76), Powell, Jacobs, Grigg (Roberts 87).

Subs not used: Jones, Bruce, Fulton, Perkins, Roberts.

West Ham United: Hart (Capt); Zabaleta (Joao Mario 45), Cresswell, Obiang (Oxford 36), Hernandez, Ogbonna, Byram, Masuaku, Martinez (Haksabanovic 80), Burke, Cullen.
