Wigan Athletic could be relegated BEFORE they take the Wembley pitch for the FA Cup final against Manchester City.

Wigan could be relegated less than three hours before chairman Dave Whelan leads the team out at Wembley for the FA Cup final next week, with Aston Villa due to entertain Chelsea in the lunchtime kick-off on May 11.

Villa's win on Monday left Wigan five points behind Paul Lambert's side, Newcastle and Sunderland in the third relegation place.
