Grigg delighted with Cup goals

27 August 2014

Will Grigg says he dreamt of scoring against Manchester United as a youngster, after netting twice in MK Dons’ 4-0 victory over the Red Devils at stadiummk.

The 23-year-old, on a season-long loan from Brentford, opened the scoring after midway through the first half when he raced onto Ben Reeves’ cutback to slot home from 10-yards.

Grigg then doubled his and the Dons’ advantage with the cheekiest of goals in the 63rd minute, a cheeky chested finish past United keeper David De Gea from another Reeves pass.

“There a millions of children, and probably adults, that can only dream about scoring against Man Utd and I was one of those as a kid,” Grigg told the media after the match. “It’s a great feeling and I just can’t wait to see my friends and family and celebrate with them.

“It would have been nice to have scored a hat-trick but I was tiring and the Gaffer saw that. It was great to see Benik come on and kill the game off for us.

He continued: “It was fantastic to just be involved in that game and it was a great feeling to walk out and see the stadium like that.

“We felt before the game that if we turned up tonight we’d have a chance to pull off a result and a good performance and we did that.”

Although the players will be given time to enjoy and celebrate their outstanding triumph, Dons boss Robinson will soon have them focused on this weekend’s Sky Bet League 1 clash with Crawley Town, one which Grigg understands is an important one.

“As expected everybody is on a high but although the boys are pleased at the moment but we know we’ve got a big game coming up on Saturday against Crawley and once we’re back in on Thursday that will be our only focus.”
