Harry targets goals in the battle to keep Wimbledon up

Interview with attacking midfielder, ahead of match against League One title chasers

Harry Forrester is determined to finish his loan spell from Rangers on a high by hitting the goal trail again and keeping Wimbledon in League One.

With Cody McDonald injured, the attacking midfielder is not shying away from the responsibility of sharing some of the goalscoring burden during the run-in.

Speaking during an interview for iFollow in the build-up to Shrewsbury, Harry said: "Cody is a big character around the dressing room, he gets on well with everyone, and on the pitch he gives 110 per cent every time he plays, not to mention he's scored at important times. Everyone has got around him to try and raise his spirits. It's devastating for him to miss such an important time for us, but now it's up to the other centre forwards in the squad and also the attacking midfielders, including me and Barchy, to chip in with goals.

"Personally, I want to finish the season on a high and I'm trying to conjure up more goals, but most importantly I want to make sure Wimbledon are safe and playing League One next season, whether I'm here or not. It's a big time for myself, but also for the rest of the players in the dressing room.

"I don't mind where I play. I've got my positions where I feel I'm best suited, but one thing that has helped or hindered me in my career is that I can play in three or four positions. I've never nailed down one position. If there's an injury, I've filled in somewhere else. I'm happy to do that and I just want to play as many matches as possible. My aim for the run-in is to play as much as possible and impact the team going forward, to try to create and score goals. I want to get my numbers up. It's probably been my lowest scoring season in my career. I want a couple more this season, but the most important thing is to pick-up three points."

Ahead of another long away day at Shrewsbury, Harry saluted Wimbledon supporters for the backing they've given him and the team since he arrived at the club last August.

"It was a great effort for them to come up on Saturday (at Rochdale). It was freezing, but they were there singing away. They were brilliant and we got a decent point in the context of things. I think this is a good occasion for them to come up and support us. Shrewsbury are flying, but we can go up there and cause a bit of an upset, so that we get further away from that line.

"The fans have been good with me since I came in. I was not shy about the situation of where I was born and how it might affect that, but I think the fans have seen how I've tried to give 100 per cent effort every time I've played. They've been singing my name whenever I've played. I've enjoyed it, and they've taken to me too, which is good."
