Neal: now is the time

10 October 2014

Wimbledon manager bangs the drum

Neal Ardley has called for Wimbledon supporters to “get the place bouncing” and cheer on their team to victory against League 2 leaders Bury tomorrow.

Speaking during an interview with Rob Cornell for Dons Player, Neal Ardley said: “The reaction to Tuesday night was there for all to see. There were a lot of emotional people, including players and fans. At the end of a great week we have top of the table coming to our place and let’s get the place bouncing.

"I remember the Southend JPT game; the fans cheered and clapped every tackle and run, even when it never came off. They clearly supported us in everything that we did. If ever there is a time to do it then this is it. We are playing top of the league on the back of a great achievement.

“I will try and stoke the players up to the levels that the fans want. I’m looking forward to the match because there’s a buzz about the place now. Let’s make sure there’s a buzz around the stadium no matter how the game is going. We can make it happen.

“We have a tough game coming up and it’s a difficult league, but now we can spark the relationship between the players and the fans. I said to the players that we will get a good attendance and supporters will be bouncing after Tuesday. We do not want to disappoint them.”
