Sports Mole previews the FA Cup fifth-round tie between Huddersfield Town and Wigan Athletic

Huddersfield Town welcome Wigan Athletic to the John Smith's Stadium in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday, with both sides looking for a break from their poor league form.

Huddersfield have won just one of their last 15 Championship matches, while Wigan have failed to win in their last six Premier League outings.

Mark Robins takes charge of his first game as Huddersfield manager and could name the same lineup which beat Leicester City 2-1 in their fourth-round replay on Tuesday evening.

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez is likely to make changes to the side which was beaten 4-1 at Chelsea last week, with Jordi Gomez, Angelo Henriquez and Arouna Kone pushing for starting places.
