It is the first time we have ever met in the FA Cup, never mind the FA Cup Fourth but it is off to Horwich we go to see if Wigan Athletic can progress, but Bolton is never an easy place to go for a win.

Although we have never played each other in the FA Cup, Wigan and Bolton still have previous in other Cup competitions and honours are even with 3 wins a piece, but we do edge it on goal difference (see head to head below).

Latics have been playing quite dire in the three previous games to Tuesday night, but a much improved display has injected a bit of confidence ahead of this and the Premier league games this week.

Injuries seem to be easing a bit and players are coming back, but Martinez will more than likely not take many risks with some of those that have just come back for this game. We have West Brom and Blackburn to come in the League and we could do with as many fit players as possible for those.

A Round Five of the Cup would be great and with the guarantee of a further 4 Premier League Clubs going out this weekend the draw could be pretty interesting.

I think this game will see a few changes in each team and it will hopefully be as entertaining as the win at Hull, without the defensive hiccups, but the same result.

Latics sold out their allocation of tickets by Monday this week, but if anybody wants to go still, there will be tickets available on the day, there are also a few places left on the Supporters club coaches as well.
