Wigan add to insult to injury with full-time jibe at the DW

Wigan Athletic added insult to injury following Monday’s victory over Manchester City after opting to play Oasis at the full-time whistle.

The Latics pulled off a shock victory over Pep Guardiola’s men on Monday evening, ending the Citizen’s hopes of securing an historic quadruple.

Will Grigg scored the only goal of the game late-on to gift the League One side a memorable victory.


“It was a massive night for the club and a hell of a performance from the lads,” said Grigg following the victory, “It’s one of those nights to enjoy, but it’s a quick turnaround and we must focus on Rochdale now.

On scoring the winner, he said: “I managed to get the goal at a great time and to be fair to the lads it’s an unbelievable performance all round.

“We defended for our lives, especially in the last 10 minutes and everyone has to take credit for that.

“I didn’t have the energy to celebrate. I took in the moment, it was something special to me to be able to look up at my family and take the occasion in.”
