FA Cup Third Round Day

AFC Bournemouth travel to Premier League side Wigan on Saturday for the third round of this seasons FA Cup.

It's the first time since 2005 that the Cherries have reached this stage of the competition and the first time the Cherries will face a top flight side in the FA Cup since Blackburn Rovers in 1993.

AFC Bournemouth go into the game on good form, they are sixteen games unbeaten and haven't conceded a goal in four games.

Wigan go into the game without a win in four games at home, losing to Manchester United, Arsenal, Manchester City and drawing with Queens Park Rangers. They hold the second worst home record in the Premier League.

Vital Quotes:

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told

"The FA Cup is a great competition and it`s great to be in the third round, and we want to progress and go as far as we can.

'I`m not going to hide the fact that for both Wigan and ourselves, we have different priorities this year. From Wigan`s perspective, they have bigger things than the FA Cup to worry about, although I`m sure they will do everything they can to win the tie.

'Yes the league is the biggest concern for us, but as I said before the Dagenham and Carlisle games, we want to go as far as we can. We have gone about the first two games in the competition in a very professional way and we will go about the Wigan game in the same manner and try and win.

Wigan Team News:

Wigan wasted no time in making a move in the January transfer window signing Angelo Henriquez on loan from Manchester United and he is expected to make his debut against the Cherries.

Arsenal loanee Ryo Miyaichi is also expected to feature after returning from injury.

Ronnie Stam, Jordi Gomez and Callum McManaman are also tipped to feature.

Player to watch: Angelo Henriquez

18 year old Chilean Angelo Henriquez signed for Manchester United in the summer from Universidad de Chile where he had previously scored 11 goals in 17 appearances last season.

He is yet to make an appearance for Manchester United and has signed for Wigan until the end of the season.

AFC Bournemouth Team News:

The Cherries have used the FA Cup as a chance to rotate the squad and rest certain players for the League One promotion campaign.

David James has sat out both games thus far in the FA Cup with Shwan Jalal stepping in and this could happen again on Saturday.

Shaun MacDonald, Miles Addison, Darryl Flahavan, Stephen Purches and Charlie Sheringham all remain on the sidelines.

Player to watch: Tommy Elphick

The Cherries stand in captain has led the side to four successive clean sheets and continued the clubs unbeaten run in all competitions to sixteen games.

If the Cherries were to cause an upset with both records continuing, Elphick will be key to the Cherries performance.
