Shaun Maloney, centre, and Callum McManaman were on target as Wigan reached the FA Cup final

Goals from Shaun Maloney and Callum McManaman either side of the interval were enough to seal a meeting with either Manchester City or Chelsea for Wigan, just 35 years after they were elected into the Football League.

But Wigan's ecstacy, and in all likelihood a place in next season's Europa League, was scarred by the repeated eruptions of fighting among the Millwall supporters, which left some fans bloodied and younger ones crying at the ugliness of it all.
