County denied FA Cup upset

Published Add your comment

Notts County found themselves just seven minutes away from causing a major FA Cup upset, only for Wigan to avoid severe embarrassment claiming a 2-2 draw courtesy of a rousing second-half comeback.

The financially-troubled Coca-Cola League Two club were in dreamland heading into the break on the back of goals from star striker Lee Hughes and Ben Davies.

But the Barclays Premier League outfit spared their blushes in the second half as Jason Scotland and Ben Watson hit back to force a replay at the DW Stadium.
