Dom silences team-mates!

19 September 2016

Inteview with forward pair after dramatic turnaround

Dominic Poleon was delighted to avoid another ear-bashing from his team-mates after producing a moment of magic that pointed the way to glory at Charlton Athletic.

On a pivotal day for everyone connected with AFC Wimbledon, 1714 travelling supporters watched a 2-1 triumph at The Valley with Poleon and Tyrone Barnett showing exactly why Neal Ardley signed them in the summer.

“I had to score it because there was one before when I should have squared it to Lyle and whoever else was in the box,” said Dominic. “They made sure they told me that I should have squared it! Luckily I have put it in. All of our strikers are all different and with us four on the pitch anyone in this league would have problems. They could not handle us at the end.

“It was a good team effort. James is a top-notch keeper and the saves he pulled off kept us in it. The back four did well because they put their bodies on the line too. It was good for us as strikers to repay that because if one of those goes in everyone is disappointed. This puts us in good stead to kick-on now.

“We had a harsh talking to at training with video analysis to go through all the errors recently. We needed to improve and I think it put us in good stead for the week because we had good training sessions. We kind of imposed what we wanted to do here and it has paid off.”

Tyrone’s first Wimbledon goal rewarded impressive backing from the supporters – and he’s determined to build on that against his old club Shrewsbury on Saturday.

“You could hear them, they were amazing, and it helped us through the tough times,” said Tyrone. “When we were 1-0 down they were still behind us and all credit to the fans. It’s even better when you can repay them by giving them a winner today, but need to go again. To get back to back wins would be important for us and the fans. I think they deserve that and it would do our confidence really good. I’m delighted to get my first goal for the club. It was a good cross from Barry Fuller and I just had to complement that.”
