Striker interviewed after Northampton
Ade Azeez believes he’s making good progress after notching his third goal of the season last night, but the 21-year-old striker says the team as a whole has to be more clinical.
Speaking during an interview with Rob Cornell for Dons Player, Azeez concluded that Wimbledon had missed a big opportunity to earn all three points against Northampton.
“About 70 per cent of the chances were for us and if anyone looked like scoring again it was us,” said Azeez. “There are the positives in that we are getting in the right positions and we always know that we are going to create chances. But we just need to be more clinical in both boxes. The mood in the camp is still good, even though we felt like we dropped two points. We will have a day off and get back to the drawing board on Thursday and Friday. We always work with intensity in training and I am sure we will come back and put in a good performance on Saturday.”
Azeez feels more confident about his own game this season and he believes that the return of Lyle Taylor will be a big benefit to the squad.
“I feel that the manager has helped a lot and he is still helping me,” added Azeez. “I went away in the summer and it gave me time to think about what the manager had been telling me and to reflect on that. I feel that this season I have put that into my play, hopefully the fans and everyone else can see that as well.
“Lyle is good and he likes to play off the shoulders of defenders. I believe we complement each other. After coming back from his suspension, it is good to have Lyle back in the squad.”
The interview with Ade Azeez featured on Dons Player earlier, along with Neal Ardley’s post-match reaction after Northampton. Over 10 minutes of highlights from last night’s game are also on Dons Player.
