believes that AFC Wimbledon have a strong enough squad to maintain their impressive league start to 2013/14.George Francomb 

The midfielder, who netted his first Wimbledon goal at Brentford on Tuesday night, says there is a big difference in quality and mentality from this time last season when he was on loan with the Dons.

“It is a long, hard season and everyone in the squad will get opportunities,” said Francomb. “The manager has told us that it is not going to be a set 11 every week. We have a good enough squad to be able to rotate it around and stay strong. That bodes well for the rest of this season.

“The manager said that nine points out of nine from our first three home games would be an unbelievable start and we have managed to do that. Now we have two away games coming up and if we can get three or four points out of them then that will be excellent.”

“Michael has been different class since he came here,” added Francomb. “He is such a handful and against Fleetwood he was up against two experienced centre-backs, but he bullied the pair of them.”
