Wigan defender Burn: With Grigg there was always confidence of beating Man City

Wigan Athletic defender Dan Burn was thrilled to be part of their FA Cup shock against Manchester City.

Burn saluted his team-mates and fans alike as the Latics made their way into to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after beating runaway Premier League leaders City at the DW Stadium last night.

“Once we scored the fans really got behind us, just knew we needed to hang on," Burn told BBC Sport.

"It was the longest 10 minutes of my life!

“Not sure how it feels, hasn't sunk in yet. It was a really tough game.

"The belief was always there. We've got Will Grigg, who does what he keeps doing."

After the 1-0 win, Burn added: "We pride ourselves on our clean sheets We had a couple bad results before so we wanted to prove ourselves, so a clean sheet against the best team in England is great."
