Wigan Athletic welcome West ham to the DW stadium for the FA Cup fourth round of fixtures on Saturday. The once top-flight greats will relish another tie against first division opposition after convincingly beating Bournemouth in the third round.

Sam Morsy, Dan Burn and Calum Elder were on target as The Tics saw off Bournemouth in last week’s replay. The trio will again be instrumental as Paul Cook’s side look too put in another powerful display in front of their home fans. Fan favorite Will Grigg will also be heavily involved.

The Hammers are getting back to their best form under David Moyes and will be looking to get as far as they can in the cup. They were 1-0 winners against Shrewsbury in a third round replay. They come into this match on the back of a 1-1 league draw with Bournemouth. Marko Arnautovic will once again lead their attacking line. Andy Caroll and Javier Hernandez to offer more options in the front line.
