Football - Cup defence starts against Dons

FA Cup holders Wigan will begin the defence of their trophy against MK Dons at home.

The Latics last season became the first club to win the FA Cup and be relegated from the top flight as Ben Watson's injury-time header defeated Manchester City 1-0 in the final at Wembley, before a 4-1 defeat at Arsenal three days later saw them lose their Premier League status.

The third-round tie will be played the weekend of January 4/5.
