Dons centre-back says spirits are high

believes Wimbledon have already shown a fighting spirit that will help the club to progress this season.Andy Frampton 

The experienced defender, who helped Gillingham win League 2 last season, has produced a steady start to his Wimbledon career with just one goal conceded by the Dons in two league games so far.

ahead of Saturday’s match at Exeter City, Frampton believes there is togetherness among the group that will serve his side well during 2013/14.Dons PlayerSpeaking to Rob Cornell on

“It is early days, but we are very happy with our return so far,” said Frampton. “A lot of new players came in throughout the summer and we have gelled very well. We have a good bunch of lads and we are all going to fight for each other. I think that has been in evidence so far; people will have seen that at Torquay, certainly against Wycombe and even to an extent against Millwall. Hopefully, we can grow together and have a successful season.

“We had a setback against Millwall, but we showed that we were able to put that right behind us against Wycombe with a very good performance. After having three games in a week, it has been a bit more laid back this week. It has all been preparation to put in a good performance on Saturday. Exeter is a tough place to go because they get a good crowd behind them. We have to play to our strengths – we have been preparing for that – and we want to push on from our good start to the season.”

“I think it was very apparent at Torquay and against Wycombe that they offer a threat,” Frampton added. “They are good young players and play with a lot of enthusiasm. Luke Moore is a livewire; you can see that in training and in matches. He has done it on the pitch by scoring two goals in three matches and he had a couple of chances in the first game. It is great to have someone like Luke in your side.”
