Wigan Athletic are hit with a £12,500 fine for a pitch invasion by fans following their FA Cup fifth-round home win over Manchester City.

Wigan Athletic have been fined £12,500 for a pitch invasion following their 1-0 win over Manchester City in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Latics forward Will Grigg scored late on to give the League One outfit a shock victory over Pep Guardiola's charges at the DW Stadium on February 19.

Numerous home fans invaded the pitch, with one involved in a spat with City striker Sergio Aguero as the players were escorted off at full time, while some supporters ripped out advertising boards and threw them towards police.

Wigan have admitted the charge for the pitch invasion and were sanctioned following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.

In a statement, the Football Association said that the Latics were fined for "failing to ensure that no spectators or unauthorised persons encroached onto the pitch".

Man City had already been fined £50,000 for failing to ensure that their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion after surrounding referee Anthony Taylor following the first-half dismissal of Fabian Delph.
