Cup date confirmed

West Ham United will face Wigan Athletic in the third round of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday, 25th September.

The game will kick off at 7.45pm and tickets are set to be heavily reduced once again, in line with the club's policy for the competition.

Sam Allardyce's side made the third round courtesy of a 2-0 win over League One side Crewe Alexandra last week. Meanwhile the Latics won the right to face the Hammers having beaten Nottingham Forest 4-1 at the City Ground.

Despite once again being tipped for relegation, Wigan have lost just one of their four games so far this season - that being at home to current league leaders Chelsea.

The two clubs meet for the second time this season at the DW Stadium on 27th October - with a second meeting at the Boleyn Ground scheduled for 20th April 2013.

It has also been confirmed that West Ham's home fixture with Liverpool and trip to Newcastle have been re-scheduled due to the two clubs' participation in European competition.

United now host Liverpool on Sunday, 9th December with the trip to St. James' Park set for Sunday, 11th November.
