SAINTS' FA Cup quarter-final at Wigan has been scheduled for Sunday, 18 March with kick-off at 1.30pm at the DW Stadium.

The club have been given an allocation of 4,600 tickets for the trip, with adult prices set at £20, £15 for over-65s, £10 for under-18s and £5 for under-11s.

The game will be broadcast live on BBC television.

The tie clashes with the Run Wigan Festival, which takes place on the same day. 

But Wigan Council are said to be working with organisers to make sure there are no issues.

Wigan Run Festival organiser Matt Johnson told Wigan Today: “We are working with the club and Wigan Council to ensure the message gets out to both fans and runners, and that everyone can have a great day. 

“The event will go ahead, as will the match, it’s just a matter of fine-tuning our planning for what’s going to be a big day for Wigan. It’s something we thought might happen and therefore we made plans to deal with it.”

Mauricio Pellegrino's side reached the last eight after beating West Bromwich Albion 2-1 at The Hawthorns just under two weeks' ago, having already won against Fulham and Watford in earlier rounds.

Wesley Hoedt and Dusan Tadic were on target at the Baggies to send Saints to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2004/05.

The League One Latics meanwhile have felled a Premier League club in the third, fourth and fifth round, gaining a reputation as this campaign's giant killers.

A Will Grigg goal saw Paul Cook's side defeat runaway top-flight leaders Manchester City in the last round. They defeated Bournemouth and West Ham in earlier rounds.
