Wigan Athletic fans will have to wait until next Wednesday to find out when their FA quarter-final against Southampton will kick off.

Latics have been the story of the FA Cup so far this season, knocking out three Premier League teams at the DW Stadium, including last Monday’s monumental 1-0 win over Manchester City.

But their quarter final tie has so far been snubbed by TV broadcasters, with the BBC and BT Sport ignoring the League One promotion hopefuls in the first round of picks.

Brighton and Hove Albion’s trip to Manchester United will take place on Saturday, March 17 at 7.45pm and it will be broadcast live on BT Sport 2.

Leicester City will host Chelsea the following afternoon at 4.30pm, and that clash will be live on BBC One.

The date and kick-off time of the two remaining quarter-finals will be announced after next week’s fifth round replays.

Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea will host Rochdale or Tottenham in the other quarter-final with the fifth round replays taking place on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.
