Midfielder on late drama v County
Dannie Bulman said that hard work on the training pitch provided the edge for Wimbledon yesterday as Neal Ardley’s men stunned Notts County with two late goals.
The experienced midfielder was still driving his side forward right at the end and his vital equaliser was the catalyst for a dramatic turnaround.
Speaking during an interview for Dons Player, Bulman said: “Last season there seemed to be a lot of Tuesday games, but now we have had time to do some real work on the training pitch. We have been doing work on switching play and a bit more leg work to keep us ticking over. The manager is all about keeping the players fresh, but you want to have the energy and the legs to keep going like we did today so that you can push for three points.

If you look at Wycombe Wanderers last season they struggled at the end because their squad was not big enough. Hopefully, around Christmas time we can freshen up the squad so that we can keep everyone in good shape as the manager wants.”
