McCann looking to defend cup

FA Cup goalscorer Chris McCann is daring to dream that lightning could strike twice for Wigan Athletic.

The Irish midfielder opened the scoring in the 2-1 victory at Cardiff City before team-mate Ben Watson smashed home with a long-range strike to send the Latics into the quarter-finals of the competition.

It's absolutely fantastic. You've seen how much it meant to everyone today - each and every player - and to our fans as well.

We're one of the last eight left in it now and this morning we were in the last 16, so it's a great opportunity for us to defend the cup.

We knew we had a chance coming here today and we put on a fantastic performance and we're delighted with the result.

– Wigan midfielder Grant McCann
