Pell aims to stake a claim

23 December 2014

Midfielder eager to make a difference

Harry Pell says he’s determined to grasp any more opportunities that come his way after he so nearly made a difference against Mansfield on Saturday.

Pell (pictured) twice came close to a late equaliser against the Stags in his third substitute appearance since returning from a loan spell at Grimsby.

Speaking to Rob Cornell during an interview for Dons Player, Pell said: “I really enjoyed my time at Grimsby and I wish them all the best for the future. I can’t stand here saying that I’m happy playing for little bits here and there, but it’s up to me to take every single chance that I get. I want to be part of the team and to try and give something different for Wimbledon.

“I didn’t quite take my chance (against Mansfield). The manager gave me a chance near the end and told me to get into the box, use my height, and try and do everything possible to get a goal. I thought I got myself into good positions to score, but it was not meant to be and I was disappointed to miss with a header right at the end.”

With two games in three days coming up over Christmas, starting with the trip to Portsmouth on Boxing Day, Pell says the Dons must not dwell on defeat to Mansfield.

“We did really well in the two matches previously,” added Pell. “We need to get back to that form and try and pick up as many points as we can before the cup game against Liverpool. It’s important that we don’t think too much about the Mansfield game.”
