Midfielder on our battling victory at Wycombe
Steven Gregory summed up the fighting spirit that ended a testing week for Wimbledon with a much-needed win at Wycombe Wanderers yesterday.
The midfielder may have come off worse after a clash with Gareth Ainsworth and had the bruises to prove it, but he played a crucial role sitting in front of the back four to help the Dons to a first win since the opening day of the season.
Speaking to Dons Player, he said: “After all what happened during the last week, the lads rallied together. I think it brought us closer together and that showed in our unity and the performance. In the weeks to come there might be a new manager coming in, but it will keep everyone on their toes and hopefully we will still pick up results. There was not too much of a transition in the way we approached the match. I am starting to go up for corners now that Simon is in charge though. Terry thought I could not head it, but I went up for a corner and I ended up with a bump after a clash with Gareth Ainsworth.”
Steven saluted young full-back Jim Fenlon for his impressive role in a resolute defensive performance and was full of admiration for the quality of Sammy Moore’s winning goal.
“All the back four were tremendous, but I thought that young Jim at left-back was outstanding and probably our man of the match,” he added. “I think we had a perfect balance at the back. The goal was one of the best I have seen, I was right behind it, and you will not get closer to the top corner than that. We all went up to Simon after that but if it was Terry on the bench we would have done the same. It shows the unity of the squad. All the players have come over to see Terry and Stuart after the game and that shows how much they have done for us and what they have achieved at the club.”
