Now Wigan have been charged for 'failing to ensure that no spectators or unauthorised persons encroached onto the pitch' at the DW Stadium.

The League One club has until 18:00 BST on Monday, 9 April to respond.

City have already been fined £50,000 after failing to control their players when referee Anthony Taylor sent off Fabian Delph for a first-half challenge on Wigan's Max Power.

Wigan won the game 1-0 thanks to Will Grigg's late goal, but the Latics were eliminated in the sixth round following a 2-0 home defeat by Southampton.
