Wigan Athletic wonderful journey in FA Cup finally came to an end as they were eliminated by Southampton when both teams battled each other during the competition's quarter finals round.
Buzzing up after their success in defeating Manchester City in previous round, Wigan were looking confident indeed as they play host to another Premier League outfit, Southampton.
Being a lower tier team didn't shy away the host from putting on an aggressive display, but their brave approach apparently was not enough to see them through.
After a tight first 45 minutes which ended goalless, it was the Saints that eventually got going as they opened the scoring on 62 minutes through Pierre Hojbjerg's effort.
Wigan tried hard to get themselves back into the tie, creating a tense encounter before Southampton sealed things off with a second goal scored by Cedric Soares in stoppage time.
