  • Mark Hughes: I will step on people's toes to keep Southampton in the Premier League

Hughes said he was pleased with his players' positivity and that they demonstrated the traits they will need in order to ward off relegation.

Former Stoke boss Hughes only took over at St Mary's this week but was full of praise for his side on an "important" day, as he spoke about the talent of his squad.

"The FA Cup has been very good to me and has always figured highly in my career".

Wigan were aiming to knock out a fourth Premier League side in their magical Cup run - having already downed Bournemouth, West Ham and Manchester City - and started on the front foot at the DW Stadium.

"Second half, I thought the game was quite scrappy, although Southampton certainly grew into the game".

Walton stopped Hojbjerg from heading home a Dusan Tadic corner with another excellent stop, but he was unable to deny the same player just moments later, as Hojbjerg got on the end of another Tadic corner to fire home from close range - for his first goal for the club.

The scoreline could have been even better for the Saints but Manolo Gabbiadini's penalty was superbly kept out by Christian Walton.

They achieved that aim thanks to second half goals from Hojbjerg and Cedric Soares.

Hughes was quickly appointed as the Argentine's replacement in the dugout and, speaking after the Welshman's maiden win in charge of the club, Bertrand was quick to sing his new manager's praises.

"I think there is good quality, good traits, good behaviours which we can work on".

"Now Wembley will be a nice occasion".

"We will enjoy it and try and take some positives out of it to hopefully help us in our league form as well".

Gary Roberts also lofted a shot over from 10 yards and the misses proved costly after the restart, with Walton keeping his side in the tie after a Byrne back pass played Gabbiadini clean in on the Wigan goal after 57 minutes.

Manager Paul Cook said: "It is a hard one when the prize is so great for a club like ours".

"I wanted us to be a bit more dominant and play in the opposition half", he said. It was not to be, and now they must focus on their promotion bid. Subs: Nathan Redmond (for Boufal, 65) 6, Shane Long (for Carrillo, 81) 6, Oriel Romeu (for Gabbiadini, 88) 5.
