Southampton will travel to Championship side Wigan Athletic in the FA Youth Cup Fourth Round.

Saints are set to face the Latics at DW Stadium in the next stage of the competition, having defeated Manchester United 2-1 in the previous round.

Late goals from Thomas O'Connor and Will Smallbone completed the comeback at Old Trafford and secured Saints safe passage into the next round.

Wigan progressed into the next stage of the competition by beating Exeter City 2-1, thanks to a very late James Berry strike in extra time.

The FA Youth Cup Fourth Round tie is scheduled to be played before Saturday 14th January 2017.
