'They Kept Coming Back At Us!'

'They Kept Coming Back At Us!'

Wigan captain Arjan de Zeeuw was full of praise for Leeds and therefore all the more satisfied with the performance which sneaked Wigan into a fourth-round meeting away to Manchester City.

'They kept coming back. Credit to them - they made it a real battle for us,' said the centre-half.

'They are a good side playing well in the Championship. We knew we were in for a battle - but we have a lot of character in the team.

'To go through in a game like this away from home makes us very proud.'

Two goals from Jason Roberts helped Wigan to scrape through - and he is hoping he has a few more to come in what is his favourite competition.

'I do seem to score in the FA Cup, so I hope it bodes well for the next round,' he told Sky Sports.

'We were a little bit tired tonight but kept going.'
