Bury 4-0 Wigan Athletic

2013 FA Cup winners Wigan crashed out in the first round in humiliating fashion with a heavy defeat at Bury.

Tom Pope headed in Chris Hussey's cross to open the scoring for the Shakers.

Haris Vuckic could have levelled for the Latics, but was denied by Daniel Bachmann, before Danny Mayor doubled Bury's lead following a quick break.

Nathan Cameron's header on the stroke of half-time put the hosts clear before Leon Clarke's strike rounded off the victory just past the hour mark.

Wigan's last victory in the FA Cup came when they beat Manchester City 2-1 in the 2014 quarter-finals, less than a year after beating them in the 2013 final.

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

"Wigan are one of the best teams in the league, they've spent heavily and recruited well. They've probably more than two players for every position.

"We had to get about them. We had to make it a difficult afternoon for them. If you let this team pop you and pass you they can destroy you.

"We worked on a game plan for two solid days. I told the players on Thursday that I wanted that real focus and to a man the crosses they put in, the way they hurt their team, the way we threatened that back line was outstanding."

Wigan manager Gary Caldwell told BBC Radio Manchester:

"It's probably the lowest I've been as a manager since I got the job. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. It's one we have to take, we had great support again so I apologise to the fans.

"It's not good enough in terms of result and performance, we have to take it on the chin, regroup and go again.

"I thought we started very well and had opportunities to score and we said we can't take them for granted, they aren't going to keep coming, we have to be more clinical. We were a bit wasteful.

"The first goal is a mistake and we crumbled after that as a team, that's something we haven't done this season. It's a massive disappointment."
