Latics’ game with the Gunners will take place on either April 12 or 13 with the other semi-final, between Hull and Sheffield United, being played on the other day.

However with issues surrounding kick-off times, television rights and the London Marathon taking place on the Sunday to complicate matters, the decision-making process could take some time.
