Manchester City's ambition to snatch this season FA Cup title failed miserably as they suffered a disappointing defeat on the 6th round of that tournament, getting beaten by Wigan Athletic. Playing in front of their home crowd, Man City failed to make a bright start on that weekend tie as it was Wigan that got things going with Jordi Gomez opening the score from a spot kick on 27 minutes, which lasted until half time break.
In the second half, Wigan continue to cause problems for their opponent as they double their lead on 47 minutes through James Perch's close range finish. Trailing 2-0 down wan't something that City expected on that match as they immediately pushed forward vigorously, but all they managed to pick up was a consolation goal on 68 minutes from Samir Nasri. Despite there's still enough time to get that equalizing goal, the host failed to break down their opponent as Wigan Athletic hold down their slender lead until the final whistle was blown.
