Captain confident ahead of Yeovil
Barry Fuller says the Dons can go to Yeovil this Saturday full of confidence after maintaining their unbeaten away league record.
AFC Wimbledon have yet to taste defeat on the road in League 2 so far this season after three games and captain Fuller (pictured) was pleased with the resilience his side showed at Mansfield last time out.
Speaking during an interview with Rob Cornell for Dons Player, Fuller said: “It was disappointing to concede a goal, but there was not really much we could do about the free-kick. There were lots of positives and I think they only had one shot on goal apart from when they scored. We were really happy to come away unbeaten again away from home.
“We knew with the way that Mansfield played last season it would be a tough game and they are a big side. We were not getting many decisions going for us from the referee in the first-half, but we stayed professional and did our jobs. Our second half performance showed what we are capable of. We will go again for another away trip at Yeovil. It will be somewhere we will believe we can get three points if we all do our jobs right.”
Will Nightingale produced a creditable performance at centre-back at Mansfield after Karleigh Osborne had to come off injured in the first half and Fuller believes the young defender will not let anyone down if he is called upon again.
“We know what we will get from Will,” added Fuller. “He always gives 100 per cent and wears his heart on his sleeve. He has played a few games now for the first-team so we know what Will is all about. He came in and did his job and he can compete at this level.”
