Speaking to Rob Cornell ahead of tomorrow’s first home match of the season against Wycombe, Fuller said: “Towards the end of both matches so far against Torquay and Millwall we created a lot of chances, but we have to be more ruthless. At home we will have to make sure that we take our chances and we need to be confident that we can kill teams off. We have set ourselves a target at home and obviously we don’t want to get beat at all. At worst, if we can lose just a couple and make sure we win most of our home games then we can push ourselves towards the top of the table.

man. I am sure they will be right behind us all season and hopefully they can push us over the line at times.”th“We have to really roll our sleeves up and if we are not having the best of games on the ball, then we need to be hard to beat, which is what we have been saying in the dressing room. You could hear our support right the way throughout the 90 minutes at Torquay and they can be our 12

Right-back Fuller added that he has been impressed with Wimbledon’s defensive shape so far, but he knows they will have to be at their best against Wycombe Wanderers.

“It has been the same back four for both games and defensively our shape has been good,” Fuller said. “Teams have found us tough to break down. Our aim is to not let teams thread balls through the midfield and the back four. We have been forcing players wide; we either stop the crosses or deal with them if they come in. We have been quite solid from front to back.

“A team managed by Gareth Ainsworth will always be fit and they will be raring to go. They have brought a couple of forwards in and have experienced players at this level with the likes of Dean Morgan and Jo Kuffour. Hopefully, we can shut-up shop and they have more to worry about from us though. We are at home and we have to take the game to them as much as possible.”
