Bolton Wanderers fans are celebrating tonight following this evening's FA Cup Third Round Draw which sees the arrival of the big boys, and Wigan Athletic.

Wanderers have only gone and drawn them.

'Somewhat outspoken' Wigan chairman Dave Whelan appointed 'somewhat outspoken' manager Malky Mackay to the delight of their 'somewhat outspoken'  fans, and the draw sees them provide the first opponents of 2015 for with the tie due to be played on Saturday 3rd January 2015.

Unforgettably, the Super Whites have already smashed Wigan once this season back in November - they also won the last FA Cup meeting of the two back in 2011 when Croatian striker Ivan Klasnic scored to secure victory for Wanderers.

Wigan have of course been in the papers a lot lately, mainly due to their hilarious form which has taken the club from almost reaching the Premier League last year to being certainties for relegation this time round.

Wanderers fans rejoiced when the news broke, as thoughts immediately turned to the fourth round, which we are now certainties to reach.
