Striker praises coaching at Wimbledon

Ade Azeez says he’s learning a lot at AFC Wimbledon and the 20-year-old striker is happy playing a cameo role for now.

Since joining Wimbledon in the summer, Azeez has often made impressive contributions as a substitute, but he has also shown promise when handed starts, most notably when he struck his third goal of the season in a JPT win at Milton Keynes last week.

“The fans get behind us and it makes a huge difference. It gives the team a real buzz and the fans have been great since I’ve been here. I’m enjoying it every time that I go onto the pitch in front of these fans.”

With Bayo Akinfenwa and Matt Tubbs having struck 16 goals between them in all competitions so far this season, Wimbledon’s style of play has been entertaining to watch, particularly against the best teams in League 2.

Azeez added: “The wingers have been delivering penetrating crosses for the strikers and it seems to be working. Bury were top of the table for a reason, but we dealt with them well. We have another tough game against Wycombe on Saturday, but we’ve met every challenge so far when we’ve played the top teams.”
