If Wigan Athletic beat AFC Fylde in their FA Cup second round replay, they will travel to the south coast to face Premier League Bournemouth.

Latics will be hoping it is a lucky omen - they last time they faced Eddie Howe's men in the cup was in 2013.

Again it was a third round tie, which Latics won on a replay 1-0, a display which kickstarted the most famous cup run in their history culminating in that amazing day at Wembley in May.

Other tasty ties to be picked out live on BBC2 included a Merseyside derby - Liverpool against Everton - Arsenal versus Nottingham Forest and Manchester City against Burnley. Manchester United will play Derby County.

The ties will be played on the weekend of January 6.
