Terry Brown after Preston defeat

1 August 2012

Boss demands more

Terry Brown offered no excuses after last night's defeat against Preston North End and said his side must tighten up at the back.

The Dons had conceded three goals by the 23rd minute with pacy right-winger Jeffrey Monakana, in particular, offering a potent threat for the impressive League 1 visitors.

Terry said: "I was disappointed with the that goals we gave away. All three in the first-half were individual errors. But Graham Westley plays a distinct type of football that is very hard to play against and he has brought in some very good players. They showed in glimpses that they have the quality to kill teams on the break, they were very clinical.

"That is the difference when you go up a level. We came out bright at the start of the second-half and created a few half chances, but they broke and scored with their first chance of the second half. That is the difference in quality. It was a big run-out for us as some of our players got 90 minutes. It should be a good, open game on Saturday against West Ham's youngsters, but we need to tighten up at the back as our goals against record at home is not the best now."
