CAR
WIG
90+4'
There goes the final whistle. FA Cup holders Wigan hold on to edge out Cardiff who will now have to concentrate on Premier League survival, while the Latics can dream of a return to Wembley.
90+3'
Cala heads on a long ball into the path of Campbell, but once more Al Habsi is quick to avert danger.
90+2'
Cardiff are running out of ideas and look to be running out of time in the FA Cup.
90+1'
Cala goes down in the box looking for a penalty but his appeals are waved away by referee Martin Atkinson. The defender is struggling to turn Wigan defender Ramis and goes to ground too easily.
90'
Four minutes of time to be added on. Can Wigan hold on and soak up more Cardiff pressure?
89'
Cardiff have thrown both of their central defenders forward for the final minutes, but a long ball forward from Marshall lands in the arms of Al Habsi.
88'
McClean has an effort but Marshall saves well to stop Wigan extending their lead.
87'
Considering they are the home side and currently a division higher, Cardiff have flattered to deceive against Wigan's organisation.
86'
Zaha takes on McClean on the byline but is tackled and Cardiff win only a throw-in.
85'
Noone tries again with another effort, this time from inside the area but from an angle, but his shot is off target.
84'
Noone's speculative shot from outside the area is parried for a corner by Al Habsi.
83'
Wigan have already played over 40 games this season, including Europa League trips to Russia and Slovenia, but they remain on course for a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals here.
82'
From the resulting corner a Zaha shot is parried by Al Habsi but Cala can't get anything on the rebound.
81'
Daehli darts into the box, jinking left and right, before his deflected shot just zips over the bar.
80'
Noone stands over the ball, but the left-footer's ball into the box is headed away at the first attempt.
79'
Campbell runs at the Wigan defence and is tripped and tries to stay on his feet before losing his balance. The free-kick is in a good position for Cardiff.
78'
 
A sub for both sides. Eikrem departs for Cardiff, replaced by Kim. While Gomez is taken off by Wigan for Crainey.
Wigan Athletic Substitution
Cardiff City Substitution
77'
 
Fortune is called offside, the big striker has worked hard and really put in a good shift for Wigan offering an outlet and holding up the ball to great effect.
76'
McClean attempts a hopeful get out ball to Fortune, but it is mishit and rolls harmlessly out of play for a Cardiff throw-in.
75'
Theophile-Catherine gives away a needless free-kick on the halfway line in a tussle with Fortune, allowing Wigan to slow the game down.
74'
Campbell drifts out wide on the right to try and invent something and wins a corner for Cardiff, but it is cleared immediately.
73'
The Premier League side have been forced back into their own half by Wigan's pressing style.
72'
Cardiff are really struggling to create anything, as they labour on attack after attack.
71'
Wigan, on the attack, look far more comfortable in possession and more likely to create something as they pass the ball about with finesse.
70'
A poor touch from McClean allows the ball to go out of play needlessly on the left wing.
69'
Wigan's organisation has frustrated Cardiff, whose creative players have failed to invent anything like enough needed to trouble the Latics for a long period.
68'
Zaha angrily appeals for a penalty after going down under the challenge of Boyce but his claims are dismissed.
67'
Gomez tries to play in Espinoza but his pass is overhit and collected comfortably by Marshall.
Wigan Athletic Substitution
66'
 
Wigan make another change, McManaman departs for James McClean.
65'
Noone shoots from the right angle of the penalty area but Wigan regularly have two banks of four camped behind the ball and the effort is blocked and cleared.
64'
 
Wigan's McCann receives the first booking of the afternoon for that challenge.
63'
Noone drives forward but is tripped by McCann and wins a free-kick.
62'
McCann's hopeful ball forward misses Fortune and drifts towards Marshall. Wasteful from Wigan.

61'
 
Craig Noone replaces Berget for Cardiff.
60'

Wigan Athletic Substitution
57'

56'

55'
Eikrem plays a hopeful ball forward in search of Zaha, but Al Habsi is quick off his line to snuff out the threat.
54'
Cardiff are forced to clear under pressure and the ball is out of play for a Wigan throw in.
53'
McManaman's cross from the left is unexpectedly met by McCann at the back post who almost curls it beyond Marshall to extend Wigan's lead.
52'
Eikrem's corner is met by Cala but is does not have enough power to trouble Al Habsi, and there is no one on hand to follow it up.
51'
Berget forces a corner for Cardiff on the right wing.
50'
Gomez finds McManaman in space o the left wing but Daehli tracks back to win possession.
49'
Perch attempts a ball into space down the right wing, but despite Fortune's best attempts to force a corner Cardiff win a goal kick.
48'
Daehli starts the second half as he means to go on for Cardiff, attacking with pace down the left before curling an effort wide of the right-hand post.
47'
 
Cardiff made one change at the break, replacing Medel with Don Cowie.
46'
Cardiff get the second half underway.
Cardiff City Substitution
45+2
Cardiff win a corner in what is likely to be the last action of the first-half. Cala's header comes off the post from close range to win a second corner before Wigan clear in the final action of the half. Wigan take a slight advantage into the break.
45+1'
Cardiff step up a gear as they look to create one more chance before the end of the half but Wigan are sat behind the ball.
45'
Two minutes of added time to be played at the end of the first-half.
44'

43'
Daehli feeds Zaha down the right, and the young winger sees his cross blocked for a corner.
42'
 
Beausejour is called offside for Wigan near to the byline on the left wing.
41'
That free-kick appeared to come from nothing, but full credit to Wigan for making something of it. Cardiff were caught off guard.
40'
 
GOAL! Gomez rolls the ball to Watson who strikes it cleanly and powerfully past Marshall to give Wigan the lead for a second time.
39'
Fortune is fouled by Cala, giving Wigan a free-kick 30 yards from goal. Gomez and Watson stand over the ball.
38'
Given a chance to test Beausejour, Zaha fails to take advantage and is easily dispossessed.
37'
So close for Cardiff as Daehli's left wing cross/shot evades everyone in the box including Al Habsi.
36'
Cardiff corner after good work by Berget.
35'
Campbell wastes a great chance, heading over from close range after Zaha crosses from the right.
34'
Zaha passes the ball out of play when presented with the opportunity of an easy lay-off to Theophile-Catherine.
33'
Medel's hopeful ball forward towards Campbell is headed out for a throw in by Beausejour.
32'
Zaha jinks his way down the right wing and gets to the byline, but his final ball is wasted and collected easily by Al Habsi at the near post.
31'
Cardiff are being given very little room to work in when they are in the final third, but they're getting used to it and looking more dangerous as Daehli shoots from the edge of the area.
30'
Zaha is fouled by Beausejour.
29'
McManaman tries to find room down the left but is pressured back down the pitch by Zaha.
28'
It will be interesting to see which side imposes themselves on the game more in the coming minutes now.
27'
It looked like Cardiff were going nowhere there, as they tried to string passes together in increasingly small spaces, but a tiny bit of invention from Zaha allowed Campbell the room to take a shot on goal inside the area and the former Sunderland striker didn't need to be asked twice.
26'
 
GOAL! Campbell equalises for Cardiff from close range after sloppy defending from Wigan. They haven't been convincing, but Campbell's confidence in front of goal is enough to pull them level.
25'
There has been no rhythm to Cardiff who are being hassled in possession and pressed high up the pitch by a disciplined Wigan side.
24'
Beausejour's corner is cleared to Espinoza on the edge of the box, the ball sits up nicely and he has a shot but it sails over the bar.
23'
Watson finds McManaman who breaks into the Cardiff box but can't find a way through, however he wins a corner.
22'
Zaha attempts to give Cardiff that injection, running at Boyce but he is tackled.
21'
Cardiff are in need of a lift here, as Fraizer Campbell chases down the Wigan defenders in possession of the ball.
20'
Perch takes a tumble over the advertising hoardings after attempting to keep the ball in play but he doesn't succeed.
19'
Cardiff throw in on the left side. Wigan have every man behind the ball and look like they will be tough to unlock.
18'
Eikrem takes a free-kick for Cardiff, high towards the back post, but Ali Al Habsi comes to collect confidently.
17'
Que sera sera sing the travelling fans. That was probably Wigan's first proper chance, and came after a decent spell for Cardiff who were on top.
16'
 
GOAL! McCann puts FA Cup holders Wigan ahead from close range after he finds space to tap in Jordi Gomez's low cross from the left.
15'
Mats Moller Daehli puts a handy ball into the Wigan box but there is no one from Cardiff there to attack the ball.
14'
Cardiff break from a Wigan corner but Zaha gives the ball away on the left wing.
13'
Zaha has shown some neat flicks and tricks but will need to add more of a decisive end product to his game.
12'
And it might come here. Zaha turns Watson well and runs at the Wigan defence but comes a cropper against Chris McCann.
11'
The Premier League new boys certainly seem comfortable in possession and are happy to bide their time as they look for an opening.
10'
The Cardiff defence seem content to knock it about casually, despite being put under pressure by Wigan attackers.
9'
Campbell finds Eikrem in the middle and the January signing opens up to shoot, but sees his effort blocked.

7'
Callum McManaman earns Wigan a free kick after being fouled by Andrew Taylor.
6'

5'
Both sides are still feeling their way into this one with no clear pattern of play opening up.
4'
Cardiff patiently pass the ball around their defence, looking for a way out through a crowded midfield.
3'
Ben Watson switches play from left to right to James Perch but his shot is comfortably saved by Marshall.
2'
Excellent football down the right wing sees Cardiff break into the box courtesy of a one-two between Zaha and Theophile-Catherine but Boyce blocks the run.
1'
FA Cup holders Wigan get us underway.
14:55
Cup holders Wigan last lost an FA Cup game back in January 2013 (2-1 v Swindon). Since that defeat they have won eight and drawn two games. In their last six FA Cup matches against teams from the Premier League, Wigan shipped a total of just three goals.
14:50
Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: "It is early doors for me and it is encouraging they are happy with what I have done but what happened in the past is not for me. It guides what resources they give me and what remit I have. I'm just running the club as I would like to. It's not got anything to do with me, what happened before. I am just focused on my team because the January window was chaotic."
14:45
In the teams’ last 10 league meetings, Cardiff have failed to win at all (D5 L5), with the Bluebirds’ last victory against the Latics coming back in March 1997, 1-0 away in the old Division Three.
14:40
Full-time at the Stadium of Light, and Sunderland have knocked Southampton out of the FA Cup in front of a sparse crowd - 1-0 thanks to a superb strike from Craig Gardner.
14:35
