Howe: We will look forward to Wigan tie

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe insists that his focus remains on the Cherries League One campaign following the FA Cup draw with Premier League side Wigan.

Following the Cherries 3-1 win over Carlisle United in the second round of the FA Cup, the Cherries were rewarded with an away tie with a Premier League side. The first time the Cherries will face a top flight side in the FA Cup since Blackburn Rovers in 1993.

The game will be played over the weekend of 5th January 2013, with the Cherries trip to Hartlepool now set to be rescheduled.

But whilst the FA Cup run provides a welcome distraction from the league, the focus remains on those upcoming matches.

Howe told afcb.co.uk...

"This is a good tie for the supporters, the coaching staff and the players as we can test ourselves against Premier League opposition at their own ground, Wigan are firmly established at that level and have an excellent squad and this will be very tough.

"We can go there with confidence with the run we are on. It will be a big task, but one we can look forward to with relish.

'For me this is a good draw, but the focus now is on the six very important league matches before the cup tie."
