Boss raises the bar for Preston

30 July 2012

Terry aims to step it up

Terry Brown says that pre-season will step-up a gear for his first-teamers against Preston North End tomorrow night.

The Dons boss has experimented with youngsters during our friendlies so far, but he says that getting 90 minutes into those who will start the season at Stevenage in two weeks' time is now crucial.

"I need to get to a situation where I am giving 90 minutes to the 11-14 players who will be regulars," Terry said. "Preston will offer me a chance to do that. We have mixed youngsters in with the seniors and at any given time during our friendlies we have had at least six or seven young players in the squads. They are players with no experience of men's football whatsoever. Some of the yougsters have acquitted themselves well, but Preston offers us a chance to concentrate on the first-team."

Terry gave a full interview to WDON commentator Rob Cornell after Saturday's 0-0 draw at Eastbourne, in which he talked about Angus MacDonald, who we announced has joined us on loan from Reading today. Click on
