Forward hoping to be picked and ready to fight for the team.

"To play at Wembley is a real dream for any player," said Arouna Kone.

"It’s going to be a great occasion for everyone involved and if I’m lucky enough to be on the pitch it’s going to be a huge personal honour."

Kone scored twice in Latics' FA Cup fifth round victory against Huddersfield Town and believes the focused performances of previous rounds will have to be repeated on Saturday against Millwall.

The Ivory Coast international said:

"This is about the team getting success and we need to be totally focused on our game plan and in being professional.

"Millwall are going to be thinking the same, it’s all about what can happen on the day so you can never take anything for granted.

"This is the kind of occasion you dream about being involved in and it’s going to be a great day for everyone connected with the club.

"We have to treat it as a one off, and not think about the final."
