Wigan Athletic vs. Southampton (FA Cup): Opposition threat

Mark Hughes enjoyed the ideal start to his Southampton reign as the struggling Premier League club reached the FA Cup semi-finals with a 2-0 win here today.

Wigan, who won the competition in 2013, host Premier League side Southampton with a place in the semi-finals, and a return to Wembley, at stake.

Prior to the win over City, the north west outfit had beaten Bournemouth and West Ham in the previous rounds of the competition.

Hughes will be pleased to get a first win under his belt as he looks to save Southampton's league season after the worldwide break.

Hughes, who was sacked by Stoke City in January and has only been given a contract until the end of the season after replacing Mauricio Pellegrino, said he is looking forward to the challenge of keeping Southampton up.

Mark Hughes has progressed from all three of his FA Cup quarter-finals as a manager (also 2004/05 and 2006/07 with Blackburn Rovers).

"I wanted us to be a bit more dominant and play in the opposition half", he said.

"But the time I've been with them, I've seen good quality and application and maybe they've been hurt by the criticism of themselves, as individuals and as a group". We want to retain that and that's a big part of the remit I've got at the moment. "I just felt we made good decisions today, certainly in the second half".

"It's fair to say the feedback from people in and around the club is that maybe that intensity hasn't been there before but for me it's the norm because that's the level I work at".

Ahead of his first match in charge against Wigan in the FA Cup the former Manchester United striker held a press conference, from which we learnt...

Wigan manage to create a number of first-half chances as they produced another terrific performance against a Premier League side.

"It is a hard one when the prize is so great for a club like ours", Cook said.

For all Wigan's dominance, summed up by 10 corners to Southampton's zero, the first half was desperately short of clear-cut chances.

"I'd like to think that if we do a good job here, then there might be discussions about staying on, but I am not concentrating on that, I am just focusing on the here and now".

Sofiane Boufal's dipping free-kick after 55 minutes was as close as the visitors had come to threatening before Dunkley allowed Byrne's pass to roll back past him into the Wigan penalty area, where Gabbiadini failed to beat Christian Walton one-on-one.
