Gavin Massey speaks to iFollow Latics after starring in Wigan Athletic’s record-breaking 7-0 win at Oxford United.

  • WATCH: Gavin Massey on Wigan Athletic’s 7-0 win at Oxford United
  • Forward grabbed two assists and a goal in the win
  • Massey: “If in years to come the record is not broken then it will be something to look back on.”

Wigan Athletic forward Gavin Massey told iFollow Latics that today’s 7-0 win at Oxford United will be something he can look back on as a special memory in his career.

Massey starred for Latics, providing two assists and a goal, as Paul Cook’s side recorded their biggest ever league win.

Reflecting post-match with iFollow Latics, Massey said:

“It is great; you can see today how much the boys’ confidence is flowing and the performances that each and every one of us put in today were different class.

“It is good for everyone to be part of; the staff, the players, it was different class and if in years to come the record is not broken then it will be something to look back on.”

On a personal level, Massey has provided a real attacking boost to Latics with a recent return to form after a good performance in the 4-0 win at AFC Wimbledon last time out.

And he says his recent spell out of the team has aided him.

“Probably that little spell out of the team was good for me and a good chance to reflect because some of my performances haven’t been up to the standard that I wanted them to be at,” Massey explained.

“To get the chance to start last weekend and get the assist and today to kick on get another two and the goal is good for my confidence.

“I don’t stop there, though, when you play with this sort of calibre of team, you have to kick on and keep improving.

“Once you have a feel for the game and you players like we do who, when you make a move, can find you it makes it a lot easier.”

The win over Oxford sets up a mouth-watering DW Stadium clash with Shrewsbury Town on Boxing Day and Massey admits he is already excited for the clash.

“Shrewsbury is going to be a big game, they won today, but we are just trying to focus on ourselves and they are trying to focus on themselves, it will be a good game,” he continued.

“We are out here to try and win every game leading up to the New Year and we have two big games coming up against Shrewsbury and Charlton.”
