FA Cup final: Manchester City lock horns with Wigan at Wembley Stadium

Manchester City and Wigan Athletic will do battle at Wembley Stadium on Saturday for the right to be crowned FA Cup winners 2013.

City will be treating the game as an opportunity to salvage something from a disappointing campaign, with it important for them to avoid ending the season empty-handed.

Roberto Mancini's side lifted the trophy back in 2011 and will be determined to return it to their trophy cabinet two years on.

The Blues have seen off Watford, Stoke City, Leeds United, Barnsley and cup holders Chelsea to reach the final.

Wigan's route through the competition has been even more straightforward, with only one Premier League rival faced along the way.

The Latics dumped out Everton in the quarter-finals, and have also brought an end to Bournemouth, Macclesfield Town, Huddersfield Town and Millwall's cup dreams.

While delighted to have enjoyed such a productive run, the FA Cup is not the top priority for Wigan this term.

They remain inside the Premier League drop zone with just two games left to play, so will be hoping a day out at Wembley provides a late spark - rather than an unwelcome distraction.

With City having already booked their place in the UEFA Champions League for next season through their Premier League standing, Wigan are guaranteed a place in the 2013/14 Europa League regardless of how they fare on Saturday.
