FA Cup: Pressure on Man City, insists Rösler

Uwe Rösler is viewing Wigan Athletic’s FA Cup quarter-final at Manchester City on Sunday as a “bonus game” for his team in the context of everything they have achieved of late, insisting there is “no pressure” on his side. Wigan head into the rematch of last season’s final ­— from which they famously emerged with a shock 1-0 victory — in fine form, on a five-game winning streak in all competitions.

Their Championship record for February has earned Rösler, appointed in December, the division’s manager of the month award and helped them into the play-off places. Meanwhile, there has been more FA Cup magic for the club, with their defence of the trophy seeing them defeat Premier League sides Crystal Palace and Cardiff en route to only their third sixth-round appearance in the competition in their history.
