22 more goals in all competitions will see Will Grigg become Latics' all-time leading goal-scorer, surpassing the 82 goals scored by David Lowe.
Speaking in La Cala this week, Grigg spoke to iFollow Latics – in association with Currys PC World Wigan – about entering his fourth year with the club – full interview above.
“I remember my first day really well,” he said. “It’s gone so quickly but equally it feels like it has been a long time as well.
“I have enjoyed every minute I have spent at the club and when you’re playing well and enjoying the success we have had, it certainly flies by.
“The promotions stand-out and games like West Ham United and Manchester City last season.
“We have had disappointments as well; the success massively outweighs that, though, and I have some great memories and with plenty of time left on my contract, I’ll be hoping to make more.
“Last time in the Championship, it didn’t go how anyone wanted it to go. To have another chance is good and to have similar people around helps too.
“When the boys are talking about it, you can tell it hurts and people want to put it right, so it’s good to have that experience. We know certain areas where we went wrong as players and we’ll put that right – the hard work we have been doing is to make things like that don’t happen again.”
On the club record, Grigg says he will take it game-by-game but as he edges closer to it he knows the magnitude.
“I have always said that if I play regular games I will score goals at any level and I started well in the Championship last time around,” Grigg added.
“I finished last season really strongly and I feel really fit at the moment so a similar start to last time in the Championship would be great; hopefully I continue that for the whole season and if I can get 46 games then I back myself to get at least 15 or 20 goals.
“We have got players who are capable of creating chances for me and it will be up to me make sure I can take them.
“The record is in the back of my mind; I have to take it step-by-step but it would be a massive achievement for me personally and a great honour at such a massive club.
“The club and the history was part of why I signed and the vision the club has. To be in the history books for that reason would be a massive achievement and a massive honour.”
