Grigg glad to contribute with goal alongside performance

Striker found the net in Tuesday's 2-0 win over Bristol Rovers...

22 April 2021

Will Grigg more than deserved his goal in Tuesday’s victory over Bristol Rovers – now the striker wants more as he and MK Dons look to finish the season on a high.

The hard-working striker prodded home a loose ball to double the Dons’ lead at the Memorial Stadium and secure three away points for his side – their second successive Sky Bet League One victory.

It was Grigg's fourth goal since re-joining the Club from Sunderland in January but his first since early March. Delighted to get back on the scoresheet, the loanee isn’t resting on his laurels.

“It’s always nice to score,” the 29-year-old told iFollow MK Dons. “To get a nice, easy one today was brilliant. I think I owed the boys that after the chance against Portsmouth - I enjoyed it.

“I appreciate all the praise I’ve got (for my work-rate) I think the performances have been there but, at the end of the day, I’m a striker and I’m judged on my goals.

“I class myself as a goalscorer so every game I go without a goal is disappointing. I’m really happy with that one today but I’ll take a few more.”

Reflecting on the result and team display, Grigg said: “It was a brilliant performance, from start to finish.

“They are a team fighting for their lives so to come here and put on a performance like we did shows how good we are as a squad and a team.”

Grigg has contributed to seven goals in his 11 starts this term, courtesy of four finishes and three assists. The Sunderland loanee is clearly enjoying his football at Stadium MK – and he confirmed as much in his post-match interview.

“I’m absolutely loving it,” he said. “From the first day I came, I’ve said the same thing but I’m really enjoying everything we’re doing here.

“I think you can see that in how we play – the link-up play and the connections are top class. It’s great to see the hard work we are putting in on the training pitch is paying off.

“The staff and the players are really trying to create something and I think you can see that at the moment.”

Grigg & Co now turn their attentions to Saturday’s visit of Swindon Town – another side fighting for their lives at the bottom of Sky Bet League One.

The Robins need a win to realistically keep their survival hopes alive and Grigg knows that will mean for a tough afternoon.

“Swindon had a really good win (on Tuesday) so they will be well up for the game,” he noted.

“They will be there wanting to win the game but we won’t do anything different – we’ve got to concentrate on ourselves, play our game and we know that if we turn up on the day, we can win the game.”
