It was also Southampton’s first victory under Mark Hughes who replaced Mauricio Pellegrino last week.
Two second half goals from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Cedric Soares earned the victory for Southampton.
Wigan did well to keep the scoreline 0-0 at half time. In the second half, Emile Hojbjerg fired in after Christian Walton had saved his header.
Walton also caught the attention when he made a stunning save to deny Manolo Gabbiadini from a penalty spot after Dan Burn had brought down the striker.
However, a late goal deep in the extra time from Soares ended all hopes for Wigan.
Southampton should turn their attention now to the Premier League where a survival battle is at stake. The Saints find themselves 18th in the Premier League table with only eight games left to play.
played well today Wes
