Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has praised the culture at Everton.

The two clubs meet in the FA Cup quarterfinals this weekend.

"You go to Everton and see Bill and the rest of the people there who are Everton through and through, just as we are Wigan through and through. It's not very often you get that feeling before and after a match anymore," said Whelan.

"If we go to Everton and win, we will still get a great reception, still have a laugh and a drink together."
