Striker knew the Manchester City tie would be one of few chances and feared he had missed his best one until he got half a yard on Kyle Walker
Wigan seem to be making a habit of it but for Will Grigg it is not every day you knock Manchester City out of the FA Cup and the goalscorer in Monday’s dramatic tie cheerfully admits the first thing he did when he got home was put the television on and watch it again.
And again and again, from the sound of things. “The last time I looked it was about 4am,” the Northern Ireland striker says. “I needed to catch up with the television because the match itself went by in a blur, but to be honest the whole night was a bit like that. By the time I got home I had about a hundred WhatsApps and 50-odd text messages. A mix of friends, team-mates, ex-team mates, it was great to see them. So I made myself a drink and sat down, keeping in touch with everyone and flicking through the best bits on television. I couldn’t have slept anyway. I’m usually bad after games but this one especially so.”
