Defender eager to maintain solid form
Karleigh Osborne says Wimbledon must maintain the same intensity and work ethic that swept away Mansfield if they want to continue climbing the League 2 table.
The Dons travel to Notts County this Saturday buoyed by three successive victories and Osborne (pictured) has been pivotal to that with Neal Ardley’s men conceding just two goals in that spell.
But Osborne warned there can be no let-up ahead of the trip to Nottinghamshire.
“It is another team I think we are capable of beating, but we have to go there and perform,” said Karleigh. “We must keep doing the same things we have lately. We want to keep this run going, but the great thing is that everyone wants to work for each other to win games. The confidence is building now, which is exactly what we want.
“It was a great turnaround from us (against Mansfield). We were not as sharp in the first-half, but in the second-half we put in a real performance and showed what we are capable of. The manager changes things when he needs to and he is brilliant like that. He knows what needs to be done and that was shown in the second-half as we came out and won 3-1.”
Having formed a good partnership with Paul Robinson at the back recently, Osborne believes he is close to recapturing his best form after making a loan switch from Bristol City last summer.
“I am nearly there now, but I definitely feel I have more to give,” added Osborne. “I am really enjoying my time here. I just want to do my bit for the team and help the club as much as I possibly can. The whole team are working their socks off and we have to keep that going.”
