But it’s likely to be tougher tomorrow against a Luton side flying high this season and Academy Head Coach Mark Robinson has called on his team to rise to the challenge.
“It was a good performance last weekend and we carried out a lot of our learning objectives,” said Mark. “For example, we managed to keep possession from throw-ins at all times. Facing Luton tomorrow will be a tough test because they can still win our league and over the years they have built-up an excellent reputation as an academy. Therefore I will be looking for the boys to show the same positives in possibly a more pressured environment.
“They know I want them to play without fear. I don’t put any pressure on them in that respect as long as they give me the physical and mental attributes I expect of a young AFC Wimbledon player.”
