Porter: it's a vital week

22 October 2013

Dons winger sums up the battling qualities required

says the Dons will need to repeat the fighting spirit they showed at Morecambe on Saturday if they are to get anything at Hartlepool tonight.George Porter

Porter was on the receiving end of some tough treatment in the first-half at the Globe Arena, but his second-half performance summed up Wimbledon’s battling qualities as he hit back in the best way possible by setting up an equaliser for Michael Smith.

And the flying winger, who has impressed during his loan spell from Burnley, says that Wimbledon need to show more of the same against Hartlepool tonight and Oxford on Saturday.

, George said: “Morecambe were quite a physical team and I thought that we battled back well against them in the second-half. We could have nicked it in the end because we had some half chances and could have had a penalty.Dons PlayerSpeaking to Rob Cornell on

“We have another big game against Hartlepool after another long trip, but the boys know that these three games in a week are vital for us. It could be a turning point for us. If we can get all three points tonight it would be absolutely magnificent because we need to keep the momentum going.

“I got an elbow in my eye in the first-half. I don’t know whether it was intentional or not, but I spoke to the referee and asked him to look out for it a bit more. The manager came in at half-time and told me that I would do well in the second-half if I ran at the full-back. That was my main aim and I managed to get the cross over for Michael to score.”
