Club history inspires Lyle

Interview with striker after impressive win against Oxford

Lyle Taylor was delighted to help create more club history by completing the double over Oxford yesterday and he talked passionately about his memorable time at AFC Wimbledon so far.

A clip of Lyle’s interview for Dons Player after victory against Oxford can be viewed via the link above.

Though the striker was just unable to add to his tally due to Oxford keeper Simon Eastwood’s heroics, Lyle revelled in another landmark win for AFC Wimbledon.

“I had great fun out there,” said Lyle. “It was probably one of our most complete performances this season and we are happy with that. It was good having that after what was a tough game against Sutton and going into the game on our patch against them on Tuesday.

“When I came here I was told that the club had never beaten Oxford and last season that carried on as well. It is one of those things, but this season we have beaten them 3-1 and today 2-1. Without being disrespectful, it could have been eight. Their keeper was unbelievable and he should be getting a bottle of Champagne in there off our fans. You have to have great respect for someone to play the way he did, but at the end of the day we got the three points and we go into Tuesday looking forward to it.

“The last 18 months of my life has been something that I don’t think I could have imagined. I’ve loved every second of it. You have bad days, but they make you appreciate the good days. I still look back at Wembley now; I watch the Sky Sports coverage, the highlights and stuff like that, and it puts a smile on my face.

“For this club to come from where it has and be in a position of being favourites in an FA Cup tie against Sutton, who have been established for as long as they have, is mental. But we have to embrace that and do everything we can to make sure we go through and carry on the run that has been going on for the last 18 months.”

 The full interview with Lyle Taylor, along with post-match reaction from Dean Parrett, Neal Ardley, and extended highlights from the win against Oxford, are all on Dons Player.
