Highlights and reaction: Jon Meades on his vital winner

Relive an important victory against Oxford on our iFollow channel

Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Jon Meades was Wimbledon's unlikely goal hero yesterday and he summed up his joy afterwards in an interview for our iFollow channel.

During his time with Wimbledon, Jon's rare goals have often been important ones, most notably the equaliser at Gillingham that helped the club stay up in 2013, and an injury-time winner at Bury in 2016. His decisive strike against Oxford yesterday was another vital one for the collection, but as it was his first of the season he admitted his goal celebrations needed a bit of work!

"It was great to see it hit the back of the net," said Jon. "It does not happen very often, so I had nothing planned! It was lovely to get the winner. The goal was long overdue really. I've come close on a couple of occasions this season and I'm a bit frustrated with myself really, but I will put my body on the line all the time. It is just about getting in the right positions, sometimes being a bit more aggressive, and attacking the ball.

"We know as a team, especially as defenders, that we've not chipped in with enough goals from set-pieces. Hopefully, we can get a few more before the season is out. The most important thing was the three points. With only 10 games to go, we knew we had to get some points on the board, so it's very welcome."
