says that AFC Wimbledon’s early season form was far from a fluke and the Dons must maintain belief that they can turn around their recent slump.Andy Frampton 

The experienced defender, who last season played an integral part in Gillingham’s League 2 title triumph, knows what is required to be successful at this level and he believes that Wimbledon are well equipped to get back to winning ways.

“It is a long season and you will get the rub of the green at certain times, but I don’t think that was the case in the opening games,” Andy said. “We showed that we were a lot better than the opponents that we were up against. It will turn for us and when that happens we will be on a roll again and our place will be jumping.

“We could think that things may have been different on Saturday if one of our chances had gone in, but we cannot really look back on it now. We have to look forward to next weekend and ensure our preparation is right. We also need to have a get-together, which is really important after the run of games we have had.

“There was a couple of mistakes leading up to the first goal on Saturday and these have to be eradicated if we are to get a foothold in games and recapture the form that we showed earlier in the season.”

“Fitness-wise I am doing okay now, but I need to work hard to get back to the levels that I am happy with,” Andy added. “I have only trained for a couple of days so hopefully I can get another week under my belt and be all the better for it.

“We saw glimpses of what Charlie can do in the first-half. He causes defenders problems because of his work-rate. The guy cannot run enough for his team. I think Charlie had run out of steam by the time he came off and that is credit to him for the work that he does for the team.”
