Midfielder eager to get forward with Oxford up next
Harry Pell says he’s determined to recapture his attacking form from earlier this season after failing to hit the back of the net since October.
Since returning from a month out due to injury, Pell (pictured) has played his part in AFC Wimbledon’s recent improvement with the Dons having lost just once in the last five matches.
But during an interview for Dons Player ahead of tomorrow’s match at promotion contenders Oxford United, Pell feels he has a lot more to offer.
Speaking to Rob Cornell, Pell said: “When we went to Wycombe and Scunthorpe I felt that I had two good games, but in the last two matches there was not much football played. I need to try and get forward a bit more because the goals have dried up for me. We have needed the points so I’ve been a little bit reserved about getting forward. We’ve been a bit tentative in our attacking so I definitely want to push forward up the pitch and get some goals.
“It would be great to score more goals, but the main thing is the team getting three points. I think we can now be looking up the table rather than down and we are progressing in the right direction.”
Pell believes the quality on Wimbledon’s bench in recent weeks is reason for the Dons to be confident about their prospects with a trip to the Kassam Stadium up next.
“Oxford have lost their manager and are not on the best of runs at the moment, but it is about what we do,” added the towering midfielder. “We go there on the back of two wins and full of confidence. Hopefully, we can get nine points in a week, which is top-of-the-table form. The squad is looking strong and if you look at our bench lately I think that shows.
“We have won our last two games even though we’ve not played the greatest. We have managed to grind out results. If we can get back playing to our best in matches then hopefully there is more to come.”
