Howe: Wigan replay a stern challenge

Following AFC Bournemouth's draw away to Premier League side Wigan in the FA Cup third round, the Cherries were included in the FA Cup fourth round draw on Sunday afternoon.

Whoever wins the replay at Dean Court will then face an away trip to Macclesfield Town in the next round, after they pulled off one of the upsets of the third round with a victory over Cardiff.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe expects a hard contest in the replay, but would love to make it through to face Macclesfield for a place in the fifth round of the Cup.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"We must be mindful that we have still got a tough task ahead of us if we are to earn a trip to Macclesfield. Wigan are a Premier League club with some excellent players and we are expecting a stern challenge against them in the replay.

"Everybody wants a home tie in the FA Cup and the past two draws have not been kind to us in terms of distance. Macclesfield would be another long trip for our supporters but, of course, we would love to have to make it...'

'...we are now 17 matches unbeaten and are determined to continue building a winning mentality. The players have been magnificent and I can only praise them for their performances."
