Carling Cup Clash Screened On Sky Sports
Arsenal’s Carling Cup tie with Wigan Athletic has been pencilled in to be broadcast live on Sky Sports next month.
Arsene Wenger’s young Guns were rewarded for the mauling efforts against Sheffield United with a game which could see the likes of Egyptian frontman Amir Zaki come up versus Gavin Hoyte.
The last time both teams met in the competition was in 2005 when a memorable injury time goal by Jason Roberts secured their place in the Carling Cup final.
Last season, Arsenal fought a scrappy contest to beat the Latics 2-0 at the Emirates thanks late goals from William Gallas and Tomas Rosicky. At the JJB, Arsene Wenger’s side forged a 0-0 draw mainly due to Wigan’s stern defensive display.
Emirates Stadium will play host to the game on Tuesday 11th November.
