📝 Match Preview: Wigan Athletic (H)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday

4 November 2023

Exeter City's attentions turn to the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday against former winners Wigan Athletic at SJP.

After the Grecians' fantastic Carabao Cup run came to an end against Championship side Middlesbrough on Tuesday night, the Grecians have the chance to start another Cup run against another League One side.

City will be looking to take Saturday's point, and Tuesday night's strong performance against Boro into the match as they look to progress in the Cup.

The tie is the second meeting between City and the Latics in two weeks. City will be looking for a better result than the league tie which went the way of Wigan.

The opposition come into the match on the back of Tuesday night's 3-2 defeat to Charlton Athletic, where they almost came back from three goals down to snatch a point.

Tickets have been reduced for the match, with advance discounts also available so book early for the best spot and best price!
