Pacy winger has Northampton in view
AFC Wimbledon’s flying left winger Sean Rigg has already switched his focus for the Dons visit to Sixfields Stadium and Northampton Town this coming Saturday.
Known for being one of manager Neal Ardley’s most hardworking players in training, there’s no let up for the summer recruit from Oxford United - despite having just come through a gruelling schedule of three games in a week.
Wimbledon took two points from tough run of games against early pace-setters Wycombe and play-off chasing Plymouth, followed by a tough encounter against Tranmere on Saturday.
Rigg, who has made an instant impact on Dons fans, said “There’s been a lot of games coming thick and fast early on in the season and it’s good when you’ve got a week to regroup and have a look at the next game and work on a few things. Hopefully we can rest up as well and be prepared for the next game.”
Sean praised the battling contribution already required at this time of the season from Wimbledon vice-captain Barry Fuller, who took the captain’s arm-band for the two-all draw against Rovers.
“Every game Barry puts in one hundred percent and that’s why he’s a leader” said Rigg of Fuller, who earned the sponsors’man-of-the-match. “He demands from his players and he always puts in good performances and works his heart out.”
The 26-year-old midfielder enjoyed Jack Smith’s opener for the Dons at the weekend,which wasalso the left-back’s first goal for the club.
“Tommy (Jack’s attacking elder brother at Brentford) gets brought up quite a lot to be fair!” said Sean, with a smile. “He’s done well, great bit of play with Matt Tubbs, a one-two, crossed it and it went in! Fair play, he’s deserved it.”
Bayo Akinfenwa also weighed in with an excellent close range header to take his tally to the season so far to eight goals in all competitions.
