Mark Hughes encouraged by Southampton's resilience in first game

Mark Hughes encouraged by Southampton's resilience in first game

"We have work to do in the Premier League, but we will enjoy this moment".

Wigan were looking to reach the last four for the third time in six seasons and the 2013 winners dominated the first half but paid for not taking their chances. It's a Wembley semi-final and something for the fans to look forward to'.

Southampton are 23/20 (2.15) to get the win that would see them make their first semi-final appearance since 2003, the same year they finished runners-up to Arsenal.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg hooked in a 62nd-minute corner for his first Saints goal and Manolo Gabbiadini then had a 73rd-minute penalty brilliantly saved by Christian Walton before Cedric Soares added a second in stoppage time.

The FA Cup offers some respite from the day-to-day league woes of the South Coast club but this won't be an easy trip to the North West, where "cupsets" have been the norm for much of this campaign.

"I wanted us to be a bit more dominant and play in the opposition half".

Picture: Kim Kardashian West shares filter-free snap of daughter Chicago
Sources from People say that the 20-year-old Lip Kit mogul has been taking well to motherhood and is extremely 'hands on'. Chi has grown quite a head of hair since she was born on 15 January , with the baby sporting a dark little mop.

After 62 minutes, they took the lead that the shift in momentum merited, as Hojbjerg was left unmarked 15 yards out and drilled home directly from a Dusan Tadic corner.

The second goal did eventually arrive, although not until the 91st minute, when Redmond played through full-back Cedric Soares, who moved the ball past Burn and carried it into the Wigan area before finishing impressively.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Paul Cook or Mark Hughes?

Gabbiadini, scorer now of one goal in his last 20 games, had the ideal opportunity to improve that desperate record but saw a firm spot-kick saved brilliantly by Christian Walton, diving to his left.

They have lost just twice in their last 23 matches in all competitions (W14, D7). I think we've represented League One in a really good way.

Hughes' main goal is to help Southampton preserve their top-flight status and they dropped into the relegation zone on Saturday as Crystal Palace won in the league while the Saints were preparing for their quarter-final. It was not to be, and now they must focus on their promotion bid.
