And the following term he only made 12 appearances before returning to the Championship with a move to Portman Road in January 2007.
“I didn't achieve what I wanted to after I helped Wigan gain promotion,” said Wright.
“There is unfinished business at that level as far as I am concerned.
“Team-wise we did great with nobody expecting us to stay up; yet we finished tenth and reached the Carling Cup final.
“Then the season after we stayed up again.
“As a team we achieved a lot but as an individual I feel I missed out on a few things and want to put that right.
“And after two disappointing campaigns at Portman Road when
promotion was there for the taking with a good
run, this is the season when things must happen for me.
“I'm desperate to get back in the Premier League as there's no greater place to play.
“Our fans deserve it and our ground would be absolutely bouncing.”
