The BBC will broadcast a double dose of FA Cup football this afternoon as Wigan host Southampton and Chelsea travel to Leicester City.

The first contest comes from the DW Stadium, as League One Wigan look to cause another upset.

The Latics claimed the biggest scalp of this year’s tournament in round five, when they knocked out runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City 1-0 on this ground thanks to Will Grigg’s late strike.

The Saints defeated struggling West Bromwich Albion 2-1 in the fifth round to book their place in the last eight.

This is only the fourth ever meeting between these two sides and the second in the FA Cup.

The Saints won 3-0 in a fourth round match in January 1986, with current Wigan boss Paul Cook playing for the club that day.

Coverage starts at 1.15pm on BBC One and BBC One HD with live streaming via the BBC iPlayer.

Mark Chapman will be joined live in the studio by Dion Dublin and Kevin Kilbane. Match commentary comes from Steve Wilson and Martin Keown.

Kick-off 1.30pm

Leicester City v Chelsea is on the same channel from 4.05pm.
