Wigan Athletic have replicated their 2013 FA Cup final shock to defeat Manchester City 1-0 and produce the biggest upset of the competition this season.
Will Grigg’s goal earnt the Latics an FA Cup quarter-final tie against Southampton at the DW Stadium.
The Northern Ireland forward produced a wonderful finish to send the DW into delirium following a howling error by full-back Kyle Walker
Will Grigg’s on fire!
Former Tottenham defender Walker has been berated on social media for his involvement in Wigan’s winning-goal this evening.
The 27-year-old carelessly allowed the ball to roll through his legs, to set free the on-rushing Grigg who took full advantage of the mistake to produce a shocking upset.
Wigan throughout matched the Premier League side blow for blow and whilst Man City were persistent in attack, Wigan stood regiment in defence to keep Sergio Aguero and company at bay to advance to the next round.
The win sets up a huge FA Cup quarter-final tie with Southampton on the weekend beginning 16 March at the DW Stadium.
Walker in trouble
A bizarre ‘leave’ by Kyle Walker and a fiery finish by Will Grigg just killed the quadruple for Man City. What a wild night at Wigan.

Walker at fault tonight. Rose sleeping on the equaliser last night. Taster of the World Cup full-backs.

It’s all over in one of the worst performances this season. Walker at fault for the goal but yet again John Stones having a poor game when given chance.
