LATICS’ FA Cup third round tie at Bournemouth could be switched from Boundary Park to the Vitality Stadium, according to reports. 

With fears over plummeting temperatures rendering the pitch unplayable, moving the game to the south coast is under consideration although nothing has been confirmed. 

Whereas in years gone by a postponement would have been the most likely outcome, clubs are keen to get games played in a season already truncated by the coronavirus pandemic.

The switch would need to be ratified by the FA.
