Cook proud of Wigan players in Southampton FA Cup defeat

Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook says they can be proud of their FA Cup run after it was ended by Southampton today.

The Latics lost their quarterfinal at home 2-0.

Cook said: "You can't ask for any more from your players. The first half, we were excellent. We expected that response from Southampton and we wish them well in the semi-finals. We were playing some great players and in the end their quality came through.

"The goalkeeper was outstanding. He works very hard and gets his rewards. I'd like to see Noel Hunt's chance again. That felt like a key moment and most of those seemed to go to Southampton today."
