9:48pm

Entertaining cup tie. Cherries bow out after Mauro Boselli's 18th-minute strike. Eddie Howe's men, who had been unbeaten in 18 matches, came so close to levelling as they twice hit the woodwork before forcing Ali Al Habsi into a fine late save.

9:44pm

Full-time: Cherries 0 Wigan 1 (Boselli, 18)

9:43pm

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.

9:42pm

Great effort by Tubbs, heading for the top corner until Al Habsi pushes it wide.

9:41pm

Daniels lining it up. Tubbs also having a look.

9:40pm

Fogden wins a free-kick 25 yards out.

9:40pm

Nouha Dicko has just missed the easiest chance of the night, firing wide from six yards with the goal gaping.

9:39pm

We are into four minutes of added time.

9:37pm

Sharp save by Jalal at his near post from a dipping Gomez shot.

9:35pm

Then, almost immediately after, Tubbs's low shot rolls agonisingly wide as desperate Wigan defenders jump in to block the striker's effort.

9:34pm

So close for Cherries again. A spell of pressure see the ball drop to Pugh, who curls a left-footed beauty against the bar.

9:33pm

Tubbs goes up front alongside Thomas, with Cherries now 4-4-2.

9:31pm

Attendance: 8,890 (including 237 away fans).

Julian1963 says

Be great to keep the unbeaten run going,whatever happens these lads have done our club proud

9:26pm

Into the 79th minute here. Time running out for Cherries.

9:25pm

Harry Arter booked for a late challenge.

9:24pm

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.

9:21pm

Cherries are looking increasingly threatening here. The wide men are heavily involved.

9:20pm

Arter gets to the byline and his cross is intercepted before reaching the well-placed Thomas.

9:20pm

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.

9:19pm

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.

9:17pm

Cherries utilising Steve Cook's long throw here.

9:15pm

Al Habsi punches the ball for a corner as Arter fizzes goalwards from 20 yards. Decent effort.

9:15pm

Cherries really pressing forward now in search of an equaliser and Wigan look happy to try to hit them on the counter-attack.

9:13pm

Cherries sub: McQuoid off, Fogden on. 66 minutes.

9:13pm

Golobart then almost gifts Cherries a big chance, but Thomas just fails to latch on to the loose ball.

9:12pm

Golobart heads home Espinoza's corner but referee Jon Moss had already given Cherries a free-kick.

9:11pm

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.

9:09pm

McQuoid inches away from converting after Cook's long throw just evaded the winger.

9:08pm

Wigan sub: McManaman off, Dicko on. 60 minutes.

9:07pm

Deep cross from Francis and Thomas heads straight at Al Habsi.

9:06pm

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.

9:03pm

Non-league score: Poole Town 2 Cherries 0.

9:02pm

Decent position for Cherries as Thomas collects the ball in the left channel. But Arter is dispossessed on the edge of the penalty area.

9:00pm

8:56pm

I saved a bit of FA Cup history for half-time so will use it now...

8:55pm

8:48pm Tue 15 Jan 13

charlie2004 says

We are more than matching them so here's hoping we get a bit of luck in front of goal in the 2nd half.

8:55pm

Apologies for the lengthy break. My mobile and wireless connections disappeared at the interval.

8:54pm

Second half now under way...

8:54pm

Half-time: Cherries 0 Wigan 1 (Boselli, 18)

8:36pm

Wigan will be glad to hear the half-time whistle with Cherries pushing on.

8:35pm

Pollitt desperately claws out the ball from under his crossbar.

8:35pm

Another corner...

8:34pm

Another nice delivery from Pugh towards Thomas, the ball drops for Francis whose sweet volley is deflected for a corner.

8:33pm

Ronnie Stam goes into the book for a challenge on Pugh.

8:32pm

We are into four minutes of added time and Cherries are upping the ante a touch.

8:30pm

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.

8:25pm

Both O'Kane and McQuoid have also just received treatment.

8:24pm

Pugh cross from the left picks out Thomas, who gets across his marker but heads well wide.

8:22pm

Lewis Grabban had been limping since taking a knock so that was an enforced change. Cherries will hope their leading scorer can recover quickly.

8:20pm

Cherries sub: Marc Pugh on, Lewis Grabban off. 34 minutes.

8:20pm

Callum McManaman sees his low shot well stopped by Jalal. Sharp save.

8:18pm

Charlie Daniels doing well for Cherries. Looking dangerous every time he gets forward.

8:16pm

Corner for Cherries...

8:16pm

Jordi Gomez is not making any friends here after two late challenges in quick succession. First on Arter, now Daniels.

8:14pm

Back under way here at Dean Court after some treatment for Grabban.

8:13pm

Non-league score: Poole Town 1-0 up at home against Cinderford.

8:12pm

Fans in the Steve Fletcher Stand are doing their best to lift Cherries.

8:11pm

Cherries have responded quite well since going behind, with McQuoid getting to the byline but seeing his low cut-back cleared.

8:07pm

Argentine striker Boselli fires Wigan into the lead with a powerful drive from 20 yards, leaving Jalal with no chance.

8:06pm

GOAL - WIGAN. Mauro Boselli, 18 minutes.

8:05pm

Bournemouth Echo: LACK OF OPPORTUNITY: Eunan O'Kane
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.

8:04pm

A little reminder of why we are all here for the replay...

8:03pm

Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Scott Parker among the crowd to watch his brother-in-law Harry Arter.

8:02pm

Mauro Boselli and Angelo Henriquez playing in a front two for Wigan.

8:00pm

Decent enough start by Cherries. Very little from the Premier League visitors so far.

7:55pm

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.

7:53pm

Nice move by Cherries. Grabban releases O'Kane, he slips in Francis but the shot is wild.

7:52pm

Pitch looks a bit cut up, perhaps understandably after the rain on Saturday.

7:51pm

Thomas fires over left-footed on the spin 10 yards out.

7:51pm

Big call to draft in Wes Thomas to start up front.

7:48pm

First cheer of the night as Jordi Gomez, goalscorer in the first match, mis-controls the ball straight out of play.

7:48pm

We are under way in the first half...

7:44pm

Bournemouth Echo: CUP PEDIGREE: Tommy Elphick


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.”

7:42pm

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.”

Bournemouth Echo: BACK HOME: Harry Redknapp has taken on an advisory role at Cherries

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.”

7:35pm

Bournemouth Echo: Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall. Cherries.


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.”

7:31pm

Wigan have made nine changes.

7:30pm

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.

7:27pm

We will be providing some pre-match build-up before live updates throughout this FA Cup third round replay.

7:27pm

Good evening all and welcome to Dean Court.

What a shame,but still plenty to play for,but the game could have been arranged at a later date so the lads could recover from the weekend fixture against Swindon.

Mr Editor, the time for wholesale personnel changes in the sports department is long overdue. It is clear to this long standing supporter of AFCB that the current team have no passion for the club. May I suggest putting them on the transfer list and replacing them with people who are commited to the cause?
