FA Cup draw
Wigan have been drawn at home to Leeds United in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. Tie to be played over the weekend of 7/8th January 2006.
The Latics played, and beat, Leeds twice in the Championship last season without conceding a goal. The only previous meeting was a 2-0 defeat at Springfield Park in the Quarter-Final of the FA Cup in 1987.
I expect Paul Jewell to play the shadow squad again in this game as we have done in all the League Cup matches this season.
The other tie with local interest is Burton/Burscough vs Man Utd.
If Burscough get past Burton, could the tie be switched to the JJB?
