Full FA Cup details confirmed

Wigan Athletic will face a trip to Premier League side AFC Bournemouth in the third round of the FA Cup should they beat AFC Fylde in a second round replay at the DW Stadium.

Latics and the Coasters drew 1-1 in the original tie at Mill Farm on Friday 1st December, but they will settle matters once and for all on Tuesday 12th December (8:45pm kick-off).

Should Wigan be victorious over the National League outfit, they will travel to the Vitality Stadium on Saturday 6th January 2018 (3:00pm kick-off) unless the fixture is picked for television coverage.

The last time the Tics played the Cherries in the FA Cup it was also in the third round of the competition. That year (2013) we would go all the way and bring the trophy home.
