Midfielder says hard work is paying off
Sammy Moore believes that AFC Wimbledon are reaping the rewards of hard work on the training pitch, but he says they must maintain focus with a busy Christmas schedule ahead.
Wimbledon host Mansfield this Saturday aiming to make it three successive wins in all competitions and victory could put Wimbledon into the top half of League 2.
Sammy (pictured) said: “It’s been a great couple of weeks for us. Last week in the FA Cup we showed great team spirit and everything we worked on in training we produced in the game. We had another tough week of training before York and prepared really well. We had to battle hard and it was great to go away from home and get a win by scoring three goals.
“We know that we’ve not been consistent enough and that’s one thing we need to put right in the second half of the season, especially with the Christmas period coming up. There are games coming up thick and fast and we have to go into every game believing that we can get three points. On paper, the squad that we have is better than most teams in this league. We’ve got great momentum now after two wins and we will be looking to get a home win against Mansfield.”
The midfielder added that his side are starting to once again show what they’re capable of as an attacking force.
“We were a threat going forward (on Saturday) and our three forwards worked tirelessly without the ball to stop their full-backs,” said Sammy. “I thought our front three were different class. We’ve adapted to a new system well by playing three in there and it’s giving the likes of George Francomb license to get forward. He’s shown what he can do recently.”
