League One side Wigan Athletic have already enjoyed a Premier League scalp in the FA Cup with Bournemouth dumped out of the competition following an emphatic 3-0 at the DW Stadium and the Lancashire outfit will be looking to repeat this feat when they entertain West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.

Paul Cook's men enjoy a healthy five-point lead at the top of the League One table as things stand and clearly the main priority will be to make the jump back up to the Championship, however a decent cup run wouldn't divert their attention too much and we can expect a solid display from the Latics when they welcome the Hammers to the DW Stadium this weekend.

Visitors West Ham United may sit eleventh in the Premier League table but thoughts of relegation certainly won't be far from their minds given that they sit a mere four points clear of the bottom three in what is a very close bottom-half of the league table. The FA Cup may well be seen as a somewhat unwelcome distraction by Hammers boss David Moyes as he attempts to make his presence felt at the London Stadium and this is one of those games where a 'giant-killing' act is a real possibility.

Given the relative league positions of both sides, a Wigan win wouldn't be that much of a shock in all honesty and this fact is reflected in the bookmakers making the League One side slight favourites. Nevertheless there is value to be had in backing a Wigan win and both teams scoring and we'll be going for such a result at odds of 22/5 with BetVictor Free Bets
