Boss praises youngsters
Terry Brown praised young full-backs Jim Fenlon and Curtis Haynes-Brown after the defeat at Bradford yesterday.
It was a particularly eventful first game for Curtis after joining on loan from Yeovil Town as he scored an own goal and ended up in hospital after being stretchered off with a neck injury, though he has since been discharged from Bradford Royal Infirmary. The pair both made their full debuts on what was a testing afternoon for AFC Wimbledon at Valley Parade, but the Dons boss said both have earned more chances to shine.
I look forward to him bouncing back for next Saturday and I think he will be a useful acquisition.” Speaking to Dons Player, Terry said: “I thought the two young boys did absolutely brilliant. Jim on his full debut was up against one of the best wingers in the league, but I thought he coped very well and I was really pleased with his performance. The young boy from Yeovil ended up in an ambulance after scoring an own goal and he did not deserve that.
On our second heavy defeat in five days, Terry said: “It has been one hell of a week. We tried to lift the players after Tuesday and we have worked very hard. But you could not make the first goal up that we conceded. We said at half-time that it is not good enough and the senior players have to take a large slice of the responsibility for the first-half display.”
