Will Grigg scored 65 goals for Wigan

There won't be much room for sentiment for Will Grigg on his return to Wigan this Saturday.

The 29-year-old spend three-and-a-half years with the Latics, scoring 65 goals in 150 games for the club before a £4 million move to Sunderland in January 2019.

Since his departure, uncertainly of the club's future off the field has dramatically impacted them off it, with Wigan currently sitting bottom of League One having been relegated from the Championship last season.

Grigg, who scored a hat-trick for Wigan the last time Dons went up to the DW Stadium, said he has great memories of his time with the Latics but says he has a job to do for his current club.

On his hat-trick in the 5-1 win back in 2018, he said: "It's never nice, but it's one of those good days. I loved my time there, and scored a lot of goals at the DW Stadium so if I can do that again, it'll be nice.

"I've got great memories from my three-and-a-half years there and absolutely loved it," said Grigg. "It was a really happy place for myself and my family. But times change, football changes and I'm a Milton Keynes player now so I'll be going up there looking for three points. It's a big game for us and I'll be doing everything I can to help towards that."
