Midfielder vows to end on a high
Steven Gregory today returned to full training – and he is determined to end his Wimbledon loan spell on a high.
The holding midfielder, who missed Saturday’s draw at Barnet due to illness, spoke to Dons Player this afternoon about his three month loan spell at AFC Wimbledon.
His spell at Wimbledon will come to an end after Saturday’s home match against Rotherham and the 25-year-old will then hold talks with Bournemouth about his future.
Speaking to Rob Cornell at Wimbledon’s New Malden training complex, Steven is relishing the chance of being back involved against Rotherham.
“I missed the game on Saturday with a nasty bug and I am just trying to eat as much as possible so that I can get my strength back,” he said. “I should be fine for Saturday. We are desperate for the points now. It is getting to that time before Christmas when it can make or break seasons. We will be looking to pick up three points as we need to improve our home form. They will be coming into the game looking to give a big performance, but we have to stick to what we have been doing on the training ground and put that into a game. I watched the highlights of the Barnet game and it was disappointing that we conceded from a set-piece, but I think that we defended really well in general play.”
On his Wimbledon loan spell, in which he has played almost every game since re-joining the club in early September, Steven said: “I knew that it would be good coming back here and I have enjoyed my three months at the club. I have not spoken to Bournemouth, but I will speak to them after Saturday about how we are going to move forward and what is best for both parties. Hopefully, by next week I will know what the situation is.”
