Boselli effort enough for Latics

Eddie Howe's unbeaten return as Bournemouth boss ended as the Cherries could not recreate their famous FA Cup upset of 1984 following a hard-fought 1-0 defeat to Wigan in their third-round replay.

Bournemouth recorded a 2-0 third-round win over then-holders Manchester United under the guidance of Harry Redknapp a little more than 29 years ago but Howe's 18-game unbeaten run since taking over for his second spell on the south coast was ended by a much-altered Wigan side.

Roberto Martinez made nine changes to his team from that which drew at Fulham and one of those to come into the side, Argentina forward Mauro Boselli, struck a tremendous first-half goal to put the Barclays Premier League outfit into the next round.
