Longest-serving player says Wimbledon's spirit is high
Luke Moore insists that Wimbledon have to maintain the belief that they can upset promoted Gillingham after his timely return to goal-scoring form on Saturday.
AFC Wimbledon’s longest-serving player scored in last season’s 4-3 win at Gillingham last season and with another big Dons following expected at Priestfield Stadium on Saturday, Luke is relishing the occasion.
, Luke said: “It will be a great game to play in because Gillingham are going for the title and we are looking for the points ourselves. We will go there with confidence after Saturday. We had a really tough week of training last week and we will do that again this week and look forward to the game.Dons PlayerSpeaking to Rob Cornell on
“I thought our crowd were brilliant on Saturday and they really kept us going all the time. They never turned their backs on us and they haven’t all season, even though there have been times this season when they could have done because we have not been playing well. They have always stuck by us and we need two more big pushes together.”
Luke’s two goals in the 2-2 draw against Exeter doubled his tally for the season and he was delighted to recapture his scoring touch during a campaign that has often seen him deployed on the flanks.
“I needed to chip in with more goals as I have not scored as many as I would have liked this season,” Luke added. “I would have been much happier though if I had not scored and we had got the three points. We pushed on during the second-half and were going for the win in the end, but we have to be happy with the draw after being behind twice. Now we have to work hard in training this week and push on again.”
