REPORT: WIGAN ATHLETIC 5 - 1 MK DONS

7 April 2018

Will Grigg’s hat-trick helps Latics on their way to an emphatic win over MK Dons at the DW Stadium.

  • Match Report: Wigan Athletic 5 – 1 MK Dons
  • Will Grigg hat-trick against his former club helps Latics on their way to emphatic victory
  • Ethan Ebanks-Landell own goal and Nick Powell header made up Latics’ five with Callum Brittain scoring for MK Dons in the first-half.

Will Grigg continued his fine scoring run as he netted a hat-trick against his former club MK Dons to help Latics a 5-1 victory at the DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

After giving Latics an early lead, Grigg scored twice in the second-half after an Ethan Ebanks-Landell own goal and Nick Powell header had increased Latics’ advantage following Callum Brittain’s initial goal back for the visitors.

Paul Cook made one change from the Easter Monday defeat at Portsmouth with Grigg replacing James Vaughan in the starting XI.

The visitors were first to have a chance as Chuks Aneke fired over a 25-yard free-kick after Samy Morsy had fouled Peter Pawlett.

It took just 11 minutes for Latics to get in front, though, as Grigg was in the right place at the right time to tap home Michael Jacobs’ cross.

Two minutes later and Jacobs nearly grabbed Latics’ second after good like up on the left with Morsy, Callum Elder and Powell but his effort went just wide.

Former Latics stopper Lee Nicholls then produced a superb close-range save to deny Grigg a headed goal on 22 minutes but there was nothing he could do two minutes later when a fizzed Powell cross was headed into his own net by the back-tracking Ebanks-Landell.

Gavin Massey then looked to test Nicholls from range but fired narrowly wide before the Dons got a goal back as Brittain broke forwards and nestled a drive past Christian Walton from the edge of the area.

Elliott Ward headed a great chance over at back post from a Scott Golbourne corner as the Dons looked to find a leveller whilst Walton was also forced into a double save from Aneke.

Goal-scorer Brittain crossed for Aneke early in the second-half as the visitors started the brighter after the break and they’d have been level but for a crucial block from Chey Dunkley/

Latics gradually got into their rhythm, though, and from the hour mark onwards they were ruthless. Powell could have got Latics’ third before he actually did as Nicholls produced another fine save to tip a drive from the forward onto the post on 55 minutes.

The third did come for Powell, though, when he rose highest at the back post to emphatically head home a deep Massey cross.

A replica of the third almost came for Powell soon after as he climbed well at the back post again – this time from a Nathan Byrne cross – but couldn’t quite divert his header on target.

17 minutes from time and Grigg got his second as he ran in behind from a Dan Burn long ball and lobbed Nicholls, who got a hand to it, but looked on as the ball agonizingly dropped over the line off the underside of the bar.

The hat-trick came two minutes later as Grigg broke with Jacobs and Massey before the former laid the ball in the striker’s path for an emphatic finish through the legs of Nicholls.

Latics could have had a sixth late on as substitute Gary Roberts was presented with an open goal by a Callum Elder cross but the forward diverted his effort away from goal rather than into the back of the net!

A superb performance from the boys as they put the Easter Monday defeat at Fratton Park firmly behind them with a clinical performance in front of the DW Stadium crowd.

Wigan Athletic: Walton; Byrne, Dunkley, Burn, Elder; Morsy (Capt), Power; Massey (Walker 77), Powell (Roberts 80), Jacobs; Grigg (Vaughan 77)
Subs: Jones, Perkins, Bruce, Colclough.

MK Dons: Nicholls, Williams, Lewington (Capt), Upson, Aneke, Pawlett (Ugbo 81), Golbourne (Muirhead 64), Agard (Thomas-Asante 70), Ward, Ebanks-Landell, Brittain.
Subs: Sietsma, Wootton, Reo-Coker, Cisse.
