A trip to Premier League side Fulham in the third round of the FA Cup is the reward for beating Maidstone United on Saturday. The tie will be played at Craven Cottage in the weekend of 4th-7th January.
The Latics sailed through their second round FA Cup match at Maidstone United on Saturday with a comfortable 2-0 win, bringing back memories of when the Latics were 'fantastic on the plastic' as the Stones play their home games on artificial turf. Chris O’Grady was back on the scoresheet as he squeezed the security goal in near the end of the tie. It was the Latics' sixth consecutive match to remain unbeaten in all competitions. O'Grady commented, “Any chance I get to play I just want to contribute, I just want to do anything I can. If we had won today and I didn't score I wouldn't have been bothered, so I'm just happy to play and contribute where I can. It was very pleasing because it was a typical place where an upset could happen. We did a good job in the first half to get ahead and in the second half we dealt with the long balls thrown at us and finished the game off. It's the first artificial pitch I've played on in my career, so it was something to get used to very quickly and overall it didn't prove to be too bad. I wouldn't fancy it every week, but it was ok and we got the win which is what matters. Winning just breathes confidence so the more games we win makes us believe we can win the next one. We've been taking that into our league form recently and it's about seeing where we can get to and what we can achieve in the second half of the year.”
