McManaman is booked for time wasting.

83
Maloney passes to Beausejour on the left who crosses for Kone but Smithies does well to parry it clear.

72
Huddersfield on the ball again as they chase that second goal.

71
A great chance for Huddersfield to make this really intriguing. Hunt hits a deadly deep cross into the box but Vaughan heads just wide.

70
Barnsley are still very much interested in this game. They now have a throw on the right wing.

68
He is back on his feet now and will be okay to continue.

67
McCarthur is currently floored after clashing with Danns in the air. Looked a sore one.

66
Huddersfield make their final change now, with Norwood coming on to replace Scannell.

65
Clayton is penalised for showing his studs in a tackle on McCathur, despite getting the ball.

63
Great header for Novak as he powers Woods' brilliant cross into the near corner leaving Robles with no chance. 3-1 to the Latics now and still about half an hour to play.

62
GOAL - Novak pulls one back for Huddersfield.

61
They are demonstrating that now by keeping the ball in midfield with good fluency.

60
Wigan have passed the ball around really well today and are good value for their comfortable lead.

59
Vaughan is booked for a reckless challenge on Fyvie.

58
Maloney comes on for Espinoza in a Wigan switch.

57
Great goal from McCarthur as he plays a one-two with Gomez before unleashing a sweetly struck shot into the top right corner of the goal from the left edge of the box.

56
GOAL - McCarthur scores with a great strike to make it 3-0.

55
Figueroa strikes at goal but hits the side-netting.

53
Vaughan shows good skill on the edge of the Wigan box but can't quite direct the ball towards Clayton before losing control of it.

51
Kone feeds McManaman, who beats his man before crossing but it lacks direction Huddersfield head clear.

50
The hosts have come out with belief but they will need a goal soon if they are to sustain it.

49
Huddersfield almost gifted a goal as Wigan's attempt to play their way out of trouble is disastrous. Stam virtually sets Vaughan up for a shot. He takes it first time and causes a good save from Robles.

48
Clayton delivers but Danns fouls Gomez as he chases the ball.

47
Huddersfield work the ball out to the right and Hunt does well to win a corner for his side.

46
Wigan get the second half underway.

46
Huddersfield make a double switch. Novak and Vaughan come on for Atkinson and Lee.

1647
If you fancy betting on the second half, Wigan are now 1/20 to see out victory while Huddersfield are 33/1 to perform what would be a bit of a miracle to win from here. The draw is priced at 10/1. A bit more value may lie in the correct score and next goalscorer markets, with Gomez to score next (8/1) and 3-1 Wigan (6-1) both attractive. Visit www.skybet.com for your in-match betting.

Rafee Ahmed writes: "Wow! Why don't wigan play like this in the BPL week and week out lovely to see them play like this a masterclass performance from them.....McManaman has been sensational for wigan, Huddersfld have been poor today"

45+1
That's the end of the half. McManaman has the been the star of the show so far.

45
Just a minute to be added to this first half.

44
Good chance goes begging for the Terriers. Woods delivers a cracking cross into the box. McCarther fails to head clear, meaning Danns may have got on the end of it at the far post had he anticipated the cross would get that far.

43
Good work by Scannell on the left wing. In the end he settles for a throw.

41
McManaman impresses again as he drives into the box before pulling back to Gomez. The Spaniard's effort is blocked but the ball falls to Kone who has the simplest of finishes to double Wigan's advantage. Replays suggest Kone was offside.

40
GOAL - Kone scores and it's 2-0!

37
Espinoza runs into space before going for goal from distance. His shot goes welll over.

36
Gomez floats it in but Huddersfield head clear.

35
Some good work by Stam forces Scannell to concede a corner.

34
Wigan threaten on the left again, but lose possession which leads to McCarther fouling in an attempt to regain it.

32
McCartur plays a lovely through ball to set Mcmanaman free, but the winger still has plenty to do. He bursts into the box then shifts in and out before finishing past Smithies. Good goal.

31
GOAL - McManaman scores!

30
Scharner is allowed to travel all the way into Huddersfield's half, but he then plays a loose pass which hands possession straight to the hosts.

29
Hunt is composed as he calmly heads back for Smithies to collect.

27
Scannell heads the corner clear. It wasn't the best of crosses from Espinoza.

26
Free kick for Wigan on the left wing. McCarther delivers and it is headed behind for a corner.

24
The ball breaks for Espinoza, who passes to McManaman. The winger gets to the byline before squaring but it is just too far away for Kone to finish.

23
Clarke battles well to keep possession for his team in the Wigan half and the Terriers end up with a throw on the right wing.

21
Clayton crosses but nobody is there to meet it and it runs out for a goal kick.

20
Scannell is felled by Figueroa. Could be a shooting opportunity for Clayton now.

19
Huddersfield stay organised in defence and deny Wigan an opportunity to get the ball in the box. They almost profit on the counter, but Golobart beats Lee to the loose ball.

18
Wigan enjoying a succession of throws on the right wing.

16
Wigan lose the ball and Danns comes away with on the break for the Terriers. After some good work on the left, Lee heads over the bar.

15
Fyvie goes for goal from distance. He connects well but it's off target.

14
Espinioza delivers a pacy corner, but Gerrard hacks clear unchallenged.

13
Wigan have a corner although Fyvie wanted a penalty for a handball by Woods. Would have been harsh had it been given.

12
Huddersfield threaten but Scannell ends up losing possession on the right edge of the box. Bright start from the Championship side.

11
Clayton recieves a word from Michael Oliver for a late challenge on Espinoza.

10
Lee plays it to Danns to cross from the right, but the midfielder slips as he hits the ball, resulting in a poor delivery.

Stam is unhappy with a decision to award Huddersfield a throw in, he feels it came off a Terrier's leg last.

7
Chance now for Huddersfield but Danns' header is poor after a good cross from the left.

6
McMananam crosses well on the left hand side of the box, but Gomez can't keep his header down.

5
Kone sees a shot blocked as a Wigan move comes to an end.

4
Golobart searches out Kone with a long ball to the right, and Wigan retain possession inside Huddersfield's half.

2
Wigan struggle to clear their lines and Atkinson knocks it to Clayton to try a volley at goal from distance, but it is blocked.

1
It is the hosts who get us underway.

1554
Moments away from kick off now, Wigan are in black with yellow trim while Huddersfield are blue and white stripes.

1546
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez makes wholesale changes for his side's FA Cup fifth-round clash at npower Championship side Huddersfield. Goalkeeper Joel Robles, Arouna Kone, Jordi Gomez, Callum McManaman, James McArthur, Fraser Fyvie and Roman Golobart are named in the Spaniard's starting line-up. Huddersfield's new manager Mark Robins, installed as Simon Grayson's permanent replacement on Thursday, recalls captain Peter Clarke, midfielder Neil Danns and defender Jack Hunt for his first game in charge.

1533
Centurion Cricket writes: "Wigan need to focus on retaining Premier League status and Huddersfield have a new manager with high aspirations; I say 2-1 Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium, a set piece header from the Huddersfield skipper Anthony Gerrard, dos Santos will score from a nice run but Scannell will score a penalty in the last 10. Com'on you Terriers!"

1531
Our referee this afternoon is Michael Oliver.

1531
Here are the teams...

1521
David Robertson, a Newcastle fan, writes: "I think huddersfield will win 2nil with Beckford scoring first."

1517
I have a feeling we could be in store for another upset in this year's FA Cup, so I would tip a 2-1 victory for the Championship side which you can get with at 9/1. Visit www.skybet.com to place your bets before kick-off.

1514
Wigan are understandably favourites for this one, priced at 13/10. Huddersfield are 2/1 outsiders while the draw is available at 23/10. Priceboosts include Wigan to win 1-0 at 8/1 and Adam Clayton to score first at 16/1.

1508
Could we see another Premier League team taken from the FA Cup? Many will feel it could be Huddersfield's day against a Wigan who have a top flight relegation battle to contend with. They needed a penalty to overcome Macclesfield in the previous round, while Huddersfield knocked Leicester out 2-1 in a replay to reach this stage. A tough one to predict, as usual when Wigan are playing.
