Will Grigg on fire as Wigan come from behind to see off Fylde

Will Grigg came off the bench to bag a brace and prevent 2013 FA Cup winners Wigan from being bundled out at the second-round stage of this year's competition as they edged out non-league AFC Fylde 3-2.
Grigg's goal in the first game at Mill Farm earlier this month had been cancelled out by Danny Rowe, meaning a replay at the DW Stadium.
And Rowe's 64th-minute goal here had threatened an even bigger shock, having nosed Fylde into a 2-1 lead their enterprise had probably warranted.
But Grigg was on hand to convert a Gary Roberts cross with 10 minutes to go level the scores again, before the Northern Ireland striker grabbed the winner from even closer range with four minutes remaining.
Ivan Toney had earlier given Wigan the lead on the half-hour mark with a regulation finish from six yards after a superb cross from Callum Elder.
But Simon Grand had levelled the scores five minutes before the break with a shot that deflected past on-loan Aston Villa goalkeeper Matija Sarkic.
