Wigan Stun Man City Again In FA Cup Win

Defending FA Cup champions, Wigan Athletic shocked Manchester City in the FA Cup for the second time in consecutive seasons after producing a remarkable 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.

Jordi Gomez put the Latics ahead from the penalty spot in the first half, and James Perch added a second after half-time with a finish at the back post.

Manuel Pellegrini’s team pulled one back through Samir Nasri but could not find an equalizer as Wigan defended with all they had.

Wigan also beat City in last year’s Wembley final and edged a pulsating tie at the Etihad after some heroic defending.

Wigan Athletic’s reward for their outstanding victory over Manchester City is a semi-final clash against Arsenal.

For the other semi-final game, Hull City has been drawn against Sheffield United. The Tigers eased to a 3-0 victory against Sunderland at the KC Stadium on Sunday.

The games will be played at Wembley over the weekend of April 12/13.
