Midfielder says the Dons can keep run going
Dannie Bulman believes Wimbledon are now showing the character to dig in and grind out victories after making it three successive wins on Saturday.
Experienced midfielder Bulman, who earned promotions in the past with Crawley and Oxford, reckons the Dons can build on an impressive recent run.
Speaking during a post-match interview with Rob Cornell for Dons Player, Bulman said: “We have had setbacks, especially at Accrington, but we have dug deep. That win galvanised us and made us want to play better and get the points. It was a little bit anxious today because we wanted that third goal, but it would not come.
“After we had the penalty and a goal disallowed, at the back of your mind you are thinking ‘this is going to cost us’, but one quality we are gaining is to be able to see out games. That is very pleasing. I was saying to Barry Fuller afterwards that we want this run to continue, but why not in the FA Cup? We want to keep winning. It does not matter how and what competition it is in.
“It’s about keeping that winning mentality throughout the club and hopefully we will keep it going. We have bounced back really well after Morecambe, which was a bitter pill to swallow. We’ve won twice on the road since and now back at home to get three good results.”
The 36-year-old midfielder believes his partnership with Jake Reeves is a good mix of styles and he is pleased with the way that has clicked in recent weeks.
Bulman added: “He is very neat and tidy, but I’m a bit more rugged so I think we complement each other. We are trying to create a good partnership in there. The last three games we have done that and I feel that over the season we have been doing okay.”
