Wigan return to FA Cup action at their DW Stadium on Wednesday, when they welcome Premier League opposition AFC Bournemouth for a third round replay. The teams played to a dramatic 2-2 draw in the first meeting last weekend.
Wigan appeared charged as they returned to action in the top flight where they once reigned supreme, holding on to a first half lead until they were destroyed by a 92nd minute Steve Cook equalizer. Will Grigg put them ahead in the 14th before they benefited from an Emerson Hyndman own goal. They will look to see out any possible lead this time around, with Will Grigg again leading their charge. They warm up for the tie with a Championship tie against Peterborough at the same ground on Saturday.

Bournemouth will be coming from a bruising league tie against Arsenal. They will still look to make the better side despite playing on the road. The influential Cook will again be looked upon to produce that required magic. Jermain Defoe will also be brought in for experience.
