The two sides had to settle for a share of the spoils in their meeting on January 7, with Harry Cornick equalising for Luton after Tom Naylor had sent Wigan into a 17th-minute lead in Bedfordshire.

Wigan famously won the FA Cup in 2012-13 by recording a 1-0 victory over Manchester City in the final, with Ben Watson scoring the winner in second-half stoppage time at Wembley Stadium.

Kolo Toure’s side enter the contest off the back of a 1-1 draw with Cardiff City in the Championship, which has left them at the bottom of the table on 25 points from 27 matches.

Wigan are just four points behind 21st-placed Cardiff, but they have not been victorious in the league since November 12, losing four of their last five matches during a difficult run.

Meanwhile, Luton come into the game off the back of a 3-2 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion in the Championship on Saturday.

The Hatters are currently ninth in the Championship table on 39 points from their 26 matches, leaving them two points behind West Brom, who are now sixth following Saturday’s win.

Rob Edwards’ side have never won the FA Cup, but they famously reached the final of the competition in 1958-59, losing 2-1 to Nottingham Forest at Wembley Stadium.

 

Wigan Athletic vs. Luton Town Head to head

In the previous 14 meetings between these two sides across all competitions, Wigan have claimed five victories while Luton have won two, and they have drawn in seven. Luton have scored 13 goals and conceded 19 in the process.

Wigan will again be without the services of Jason Kerr due to a long-term knee injury, while Tom Pearce is out until at least the end of the month with an ankle problem.

There could be a place in the starting side for Miguel Azeez, with the on-loan Arsenal attacker coming off the bench to make his debut for the club against Cardiff.
