Wigan came agonisingly close to beating AFC Bournemouth in the original FA Cup third-round tie and many believe that they can complete the job against a Cherries side which will be at a pretty low ebb at the moment.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe made many changes to his line-up last weekend and he nearly paid the price for that decision as his men came close to being dumped out of the competition. They went into the break 2-0 down against the League One outfit and while they pulled themselves back into the game in the second half, they certainly won't be looking forward to their journey north on Wednesday evening.

Wigan sit firmly at the top of the League One table and it could prove to be that these sides meet each other in next season's Championship should the Cherries not improve their poor recent form. Howe's men sit just one point above the bottom three and in all honesty the Cherries boss could almost certainly do without this FA Cup distraction.

Indeed this match could come down simply to who wants it most and in that regard we would expect Wigan Athletic to be very much up for it. The second and third-placed sides in League One face each other this coming weekend and the Latics will be confident of edging past Peterborough at the weekend, therefore spirits will be high in the home camp and this could be enough to send them through to the next round of the FA Cup.
