Key moments so far
- Cédric adds late second on the break
- Højbjerg turns home Tadić's corner
- Gabbiadini penalty saved by Walton
- Saints reach FA Cup semi-final!
...And just look what it means!
It's a first FA Cup semi-final for Saints since 2003 and a second trip to the national stadium is as many seasons! Head over to @SouthamptonFC on Twitter for all the post-match reaction from the DW Stadium.
FULL-TIME: WIGAN 0-2 SAINTS
We're going to Wembley! Højbjerg and Cédric score their first goals for the club and it's a winning Sunday in Wigan!!
GOOOALLL!!! WIGAN 0-2 SAINTS!!!
CEDRICCC!!! It's a brilliant goal to all but send us to Wembley! The Portuguese nods a bouncing ball superbly past his marker and rolls it into the corner! YES!
Cédric (+1’) | 0 – 2
Hoedt heads clear
Wigan throwing everything forwards for an equaliser and they almost find one. Noel Hunt heads dangerously towards goal, forcing Hoedt to scoop over the bar under pressure.
Yellow Card for Cheyenne Dunkley (Wigan Athletic)
That's what he's there for! Clever play from Long to hold up the ball, spin his marker and get hisnside up the pitch by winning a free-kick.
SAVED BY WALTON!
The Wigan 'keeper makes a superb save low to his left to deny Gabbiadini's well-struck penalty. Superb stop, credit where it's due.
Yellow Card for Nathan Byrne (Wigan Athletic)
...and the defender is booked for pulling down Gabbi in the box.
PENALTY TO SOUTHAMPTON!
Gabbiadini fouled by Byrne and it's a spot-kick for Saints to make it 2!
GOOOAALL!!! WIGAN 0-1 SAINTS!
YESSS!! Saints lead and it's Pierre-Emile Højbjerg!! Tadić crosses and the Dane pokes in on the run for his first goal for the club!
Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (62’) | 0 – 0
BIG CHANCE FOR SAINTS!
A horror back-pass puts Gabbiadini through one-on-one but the Italian can only shoot straight at the onrushing Walton from the penalty spot. Excellent save but a BIG chance wasted.
Massey shoots wide
Saints back off Gavin Massey and the winger drives forward to roll a shot past Alex McCarthy's far post unchallenged.
Pressure from both sides
An improvement from Saints here at the start of the second half. The first real spell of possession ends as Cédric is tackled inside the box before Wigan's Jacobs curls one wide of the target.
SECOND HALF: Wigan 0-0 Saints
Back underway in Wigan with Saints kicking from right to left as we look.
HALF-TIME: Wigan 0-0 Saints
Goalless at the interval in this FA Cup quarter-final tie...
It's a "cross-on-sight" policy for the home side at the moment and it's causing trouble for the Saints defence. A falling Will Grigg is the latest to swing a limb at a bouncing loose ball in the box.
4️⃣0️⃣ on the clock
Five minutes to half-time in Wigan and there is work to be done for Mark Hughes's men. Wigan are seeing plenty of the ball now as we approach the interval.
Promising for Saints!
Tadić whips in a superb cross from the left-wing which Gabbiadini is mighty close to turning home for an opening goal. The flag was up on the near side though against the Italian.
Not a lot between the two teams so far. Wigan have perhaps edged things early on; the visitors have faced seven corners in the opening 25 minutes.
Roberts scoops over
Massey's cross is half-cleared by Hoedt and straight to the arriving Gary Roberts. The midfielder takes a touch and lifts the ball over the bar from a very good position.
Dunkley inches from opener
Morsy's shot spins dangerously towards goal via a deflection and Dunkley almost converts the bouncing ball at the back post. Wigan on top for now.
Half-chance for Saints!
A few nerves in the Wigan box and Carrillo nearly capitalises. 'Keeper Walton spills a cross from the left but the Argentine can't sort his feet out to finish.
Watch out for the bounce...
Wigan's Christian Walton almost gets caught out by a bobbling back-pass. The keeper hurries to clear with Carrillo bearing down. There's a lot of sand on the surface out there...
Gabbiadini in the hole
Saints look to be lined up in a 4-2-3-1 so far. Forwards Gabbiadini and Carrillo have been alternating the 9 position so far with the Italian dropping deep to collect the ball.
Even start in Wigan
The 4,600 Saints fans behind the goal gave Mark Hughes a roaring welcome as he emerged from the tunnel. Even opening here at a blustery and boisteorus DW Stadium.
And we're away at the DW! Come on, Saints!
5️⃣minutes to kick-off!

Saints on the road 👏
By kick-off, some Saints will have travelled 830 miles in the space of two weekends to follow Mark Hughes's men to Newcastle and Wigan in consecutive weekends. Around 4,600 of you will be with us today at the DW Stadium; brilliant support at the time we need it most.10.43
Latics and Saints
Saints are unbeaten in 18 of the previous 19 ties against lower league opposition but the Latics have already eliminated three Premier League teams on their way to the quarter-finals. A win over Saints would equal a 40-year-old record set by West Ham.
More nuggets like those in our quarter-final match preview...
Hughes's reign begins
It's been the story of the week around St Mary's. Mark Hughes will take charge of the club he once helped steer clear of relegation as a player 20 years ago this afternoon and within 90 minutes of taking the reins, he could secure a place at Wembley. Do not go anywhere, this is a big one...10.22
