  • What a display from Wigan, who were lead superbly by skipper Emmerson Boyce. His vital tackle on Dzeko in the dying stages proved to be crucially important, with goals from Perch and Gomez ensuring it is Wigan who move on to a semi-final clash with Arsenal at Wembley. City got going after a triple change in the second half - but it was too little, too late for the hosts.

  • They've done it again! It's Man City 1 Wigan 2.

  • Some City fans have seen enough and are heading home.

  • Espinoza booked. Wigan hanging on grimly.

  • We're into stoppage time - and do indeed have five minutes. Fortune forces a fine save from Pantilimon.

  • I'm hearing we're going to have five minutes of added time.

  • Boyce and Aguero tussle for possession and the Argentinian goes down on the edge of the box - but the referee plays on.

  • Carson is booked for time-wasting after Dzeko steers a powerful just wide of the target from Nasri's superb cross.

  • It's all City now as Fortune is the only Wigan player up front, allowing the hosts to commit men forward.

  • Milner drives a low cross into the box where Dzeko was waiting to tap home - but Boyce intervenes and somehow clears the danger, putting the ball over the bar.

  • Twelve minutes left - and they should be blockbuster. City building up a real head of steam.

  • Milner is booked for a high tackle on Espinoza. But Wigan have slightly calmed things down by breaking up the play.

  • Carson is alert to save a bizarre deflected effort off Aguero, who breaks free and steers a shot narrowly wide, only to see the offside flag go up - incorrectly as it happens.

  • What a blunder. Garcia gives the ball straight to Fortune, who elects to shoot from 35 yards rather than find a supporting team-mate, only to blast over the crossbar.

  • Wow - that triple change has changed everything. City are now a threat on both flanks as their full-backs are powering forward and providing width which is stretching Wigan, who seem to be tiring after such a brilliant first-half effort.

  • What a hit! Nasri beats Carson with a left-footed half-volley from 20 yards out. Then Leon Barnett goes into the referee's notebook.

  • GOAL! Man City 1 (Nasri) Wigan 2.

  • Rosler sends on Espinoza for McEachran. Then Anthony Taylor says no penalty after Richards goes down in the box.

  • A deep cross from the right flank falls to Aguero but his shot is well saved by Carson.

  • Clichy's cross to the far post found Dzeko, whose header hit the bottom of the upright, with the ball just evading Silva allowing Wigan to clear.
