Wigan Athletic midfielder Paul Scharner believes that Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final against Everton will provide a welcome break from the Premier League.

Wigan Athletic midfielder Paul Scharner has admitted that this weekend's FA Cup quarter-final against Everton will provide a welcome break from the Premier League.

The Latics, who travel to Goodison Park on Saturday, are currently above the relegation zone on goal difference with 10 games left to play.

"It's a good situation to have to break up the league fixtures with what could be a very significant moment in the history of the club," Scharner told Wigan's official website.

"If we can play a good game at Goodison Park and get a victory there then we will be able to pick up our confidence again and bring it back to the league games."

Wigan go into Saturday's match on Merseyside having never gone beyond the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
