The captain's goal secured victory in last month's quarter-final replay at Blackburn, while Premier League strugglers Aston Villa were among Millwall's earlier victims.

And Shittu will lead out the Londoners at Wembley on Saturday confident of causing another upset.

He said: "A lot of people won't be expecting us to win. We don't see it like that. We can put on a good performance and give them a game.

"As long as we do what we normally do then we believe we've got a good chance of winning. We tend to play better as underdogs.

"I was chuffed to score the goal at Blackburn, not just for me, but for the lads as well.

"When we went there a lot of people doubted us and didn't expect us to win the game so to beat them was good enough. For me to score as well meant a lot."

Wigan make the trip south in the Premier League's bottom three, but Shittu said: "I've played against Wigan a couple of times and they come on really well at this stage of the season.

"When you're playing against a Premier League team, and I've been fortunate enough to have some experience with that, you have to be mentally strong and aware.

"If you make a mistake they can go and score. It's about making sure everybody does the right things."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
