Wigan's in-form Nathan Ellington made it four goals in two games with another double strike to send his side into the third round of the FA Cup with a fine win over Luton.

Ellington, two-goal hero of Wigan`s midweek Worthington Cup win over Fulham, put Wigan ahead with a 37th-minute strike when he took advantage of a Chris Coyne slip to fire home.

Depleted Luton had the better of the first-half chances with Peter Holmes dragging his shot wide before Wigan goalkeeper John Filan saved an Emmerson Boyce shot with his feet.

Then record signing Ellington put Wigan in the driving seat with a brilliant second-half effort after 64 minutes.

He latched onto a through ball from substitute Gary Teale to beat Luton goalkeeper Carl Emberson with a vicious 20-yard drive for his 15th goal of the season.

Wigan`s Tony Dinning should have scored but he lifted his shot over the bar before substitute Mike Flynn made it safe when he headed home Nicky Eaden`s free-kick with four minutes remaining.


Wigan: Filan, Eaden, Breckin, Jackson, Baines, Green, Dinning, Jarrett, Kennedy, Roberts, Ellington. Subs: Brannan, Beasant, Flynn, Mitchell, Teale.

Luton: Emberson, Boyce, Neilson, Coyne, Kimble, Robinson, Spring, Hughes, Holmes, Fotiadis, Brkovic. Subs: Beckwith, Foley, Hillier, Judge, Mansell.

Referee: H Webb (S Yorkshire).
