Full-time: Cherries 0 Wigan 1 (Boselli, 18)
Wigan somehow clear the following corner after Elphick's knockdown had caused all sorts of problems. A penalty appeal and a blocked shot all coming in the melee.
Great effort by Tubbs, heading for the top corner until Al Habsi pushes it wide.
Daniels lining it up. Tubbs also having a look.
Fogden wins a free-kick 25 yards out.
Nouha Dicko has just missed the easiest chance of the night, firing wide from six yards with the goal gaping.
We are into four minutes of added time.
Sharp save by Jalal at his near post from a dipping Gomez shot.
Then, almost immediately after, Tubbs's low shot rolls agonisingly wide as desperate Wigan defenders jump in to block the striker's effort.
So close for Cherries again. A spell of pressure see the ball drop to Pugh, who curls a left-footed beauty against the bar.
Tubbs goes up front alongside Thomas, with Cherries now 4-4-2.
Attendance: 8,890 (including 237 away fans).
Cherries sub: Tubbs on, Hughes off. 81 minutes.
Non-league score: Former Cherries trainee Carl Preston has put Poole Town 3-0 up against Cinderford at Tatnam.
9:01pm Tue 15 Jan 13
Be great to keep the unbeaten run going,whatever happens these lads have done our club proud
Into the 79th minute here. Time running out for Cherries.
Harry Arter booked for a late challenge.
Cherries could have had a penalty as Francis, storming forward from right-back, beat Figueroa to the ball and appeared to be clipped. But he stumbled and stayed on his feet and the referee allowed play to continue, with Francis's cross being comfortably cleared.
Cherries are looking increasingly threatening here. The wide men are heavily involved.
Arter gets to the byline and his cross is intercepted before reaching the well-placed Thomas.
Boselli was 12 yards out and did everything right, heading the ball down towards the bottom corner, but it was a brilliant one-handed save from Jalal.
Chances at both ends. Lovely turn from Fogden and his 12-yard shot is blocked by Golobart. It looked to be heading in. Then Jalal produces an unbelievable save to somehow keep out Boselli's header, with Elphick blocking Henriquez's rebound.
Cherries utilising Steve Cook's long throw here.
Al Habsi punches the ball for a corner as Arter fizzes goalwards from 20 yards. Decent effort.
Cherries really pressing forward now in search of an equaliser and Wigan look happy to try to hit them on the counter-attack.
Cherries sub: McQuoid off, Fogden on. 66 minutes.
Golobart then almost gifts Cherries a big chance, but Thomas just fails to latch on to the loose ball.
Golobart heads home Espinoza's corner but referee Jon Moss had already given Cherries a free-kick.
Escape for Cherries. Hughes gives away the ball and Henriquez is put clean through, but Jalal dives at his feet. Ref gives a corner but looked like he just shot wide.
McQuoid inches away from converting after Cook's long throw just evaded the winger.
Wigan sub: McManaman off, Dicko on. 60 minutes.
Deep cross from Francis and Thomas heads straight at Al Habsi.
Wigan made a change at the interval, as you may have seen from the line-up lists above. Ali Al Habsi, their first-choice keeper, replaced Mike Pollitt.
Non-league score: Poole Town 2 Cherries 0.
Decent position for Cherries as Thomas collects the ball in the left channel. But Arter is dispossessed on the edge of the penalty area.

I saved a bit of FA Cup history for half-time so will use it now...
8:48pm Tue 15 Jan 13
We are more than matching them so here's hoping we get a bit of luck in front of goal in the 2nd half.
Apologies for the lengthy break. My mobile and wireless connections disappeared at the interval.
Second half now under way...
Half-time: Cherries 0 Wigan 1 (Boselli, 18)
Wigan will be glad to hear the half-time whistle with Cherries pushing on.
Pollitt desperately claws out the ball from under his crossbar.
Another nice delivery from Pugh towards Thomas, the ball drops for Francis whose sweet volley is deflected for a corner.
Ronnie Stam goes into the book for a challenge on Pugh.
We are into four minutes of added time and Cherries are upping the ante a touch.
So close for Cherries. Thomas plays in O'Kane who thumps a vicious right-footed drive against the angle of post and crossbar. Latics keeper Mike Pollitt didn't even move.
Both O'Kane and McQuoid have also just received treatment.
Pugh cross from the left picks out Thomas, who gets across his marker but heads well wide.
Lewis Grabban had been limping since taking a knock so that was an enforced change. Cherries will hope their leading scorer can recover quickly.
Cherries sub: Marc Pugh on, Lewis Grabban off. 34 minutes.
Callum McManaman sees his low shot well stopped by Jalal. Sharp save.
Charlie Daniels doing well for Cherries. Looking dangerous every time he gets forward.
Corner for Cherries...
Jordi Gomez is not making any friends here after two late challenges in quick succession. First on Arter, now Daniels.
Back under way here at Dean Court after some treatment for Grabban.
Non-league score: Poole Town 1-0 up at home against Cinderford.
Fans in the Steve Fletcher Stand are doing their best to lift Cherries.
Cherries have responded quite well since going behind, with McQuoid getting to the byline but seeing his low cut-back cleared.
Argentine striker Boselli fires Wigan into the lead with a powerful drive from 20 yards, leaving Jalal with no chance.
GOAL - WIGAN. Mauro Boselli, 18 minutes.
FIRST TIME ROUND – Wigan 1 Cherries 1
As Wigan rung the changes, Cherries ran the show. Well, for the majority of the game.
Starting brightly, Eddie Howe’s men took a first-half lead through Eunan O’Kane’s superb strike.
Josh McQuoid, Steve Cook and Harry Arter all went close after the break but Wigan, who improved after the break, forced a replay when Jordi Gomez equalised after the playmaker’s penalty had been parried back into his path by Shwan Jalal.
A little reminder of why we are all here for the replay...
Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Scott Parker among the crowd to watch his brother-in-law Harry Arter.
Mauro Boselli and Angelo Henriquez playing in a front two for Wigan.
Decent enough start by Cherries. Very little from the Premier League visitors so far.
Cherries have their usual back four in front of Jalal in goal, with Richard Hughes operating as a deep-lying midfielder. O'Kane and Arter are ahead of him, with Grabban and McQuoid out wide, in support of lone frontman Thomas.
Nice move by Cherries. Grabban releases O'Kane, he slips in Francis but the shot is wild.
Pitch looks a bit cut up, perhaps understandably after the rain on Saturday.
Thomas fires over left-footed on the spin 10 yards out.
7:38pm Tue 15 Jan 13
Good luck. You deserve it boys. Wishing you all the best.
Cherries: Jalal, Francis, Elphick, Cook, Daniels, Hughes, McQuoid, Arter, O'Kane, Grabban, Thomas. Subs: Fogden, Tubbs, Pugh, McDermott, Partington, Pitman, James (g/k).
Latics: Pollitt, Stam, Boyce, Golobart, Figueroa, Fyvie, Espinoza, Henriquez, Gomez, McManaman, Boselli. Subs: McArthur, Redmond, Dicko, Mustoe, Buxton, Gampabadal, Al Habsi (g/k).
Big call to draft in Wes Thomas to start up front.
First cheer of the night as Jordi Gomez, goalscorer in the first match, mis-controls the ball straight out of play.
We are under way in the first half...
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM – Cherries captain Tommy Elphick
Elphick told the club website: “The past few games have taken a lot out of us but it is always a great experience to play against a Premier League team.
“We are on a high and playing with real confidence at the moment and we won’t be expected to win, so there is no pressure on us.
“But we have got a winning mentality and all the lads will want to prove themselves against a top team.”
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM – Roberto Martinez
Martinez told wigantoday.net: “The FA Cup is a very important tournament for us but it is a tournament where we need to be able to cope with the squad and with the strength in the squad.
“It is an exciting game to see certain players that have arrived at the club and are starting getting ready to cope with the demands that are needed in this game.”

Dont have short memorys says
Best of Luck tonight Lads
7:37pm Tue 15 Jan 13
Good luck BOURNEMOUTH !! ,
EXPERT OPINION – Ex-Cherries boss and QPR manager Harry Redknapp
Redknapp, in an exclusive interview with the Daily Echo, said: “Bournemouth have got a big chance because they are playing so well at the moment. It wasn’t a massive shock when they went to Wigan and drew.
“I wouldn’t be surprised to see Bournemouth turn them over in the replay.
“A lot depends on what Roberto Martinez does with his team and that will be key. Wigan are a decent team and played well at Fulham on Saturday to get a good point. If he plays his best team, it will be difficult for Bournemouth because they pass the ball ever so well. But if he decides to make wholesale changes, I think Bournemouth will beat them.”
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM – Cherries assistant boss Jason Tindall
Tindall told the Daily Echo: “When you are the home team, there is more emphasis on you to attack and to take the game to the opposition. We have got to do what we feel is right to win the game.
“We will have a game-plan and, hopefully, if we can stick to it, we will get it right. We have got to give Wigan a lot of respect. They are a Premier League side and have got players who can hurt you in an instant. We have got to be mindful of the quality they have got."
Tindall added: “As a kid, you always dreamed of scoring the winning goal in the FA Cup final and, when I was growing up, I used to dream that I was Ian Wright scoring in the cup final because he was my hero. It is a great cup and a great occasion for the supporters and the players.”
Wigan have made nine changes.
Cherries boss Eddie Howe has made three changes to his starting line-up. Out go David James, Marc Pugh and Brett Pitman, with Shwan Jalal, Richard Hughes and Wes Thomas all coming in.
We will be providing some pre-match build-up before live updates throughout this FA Cup third round replay.
Good evening all and welcome to Dean Court.
