Pigott ahead of Wycombe: It’s a great opportunity

Interview with Wimbledon's top scorer

26 April 2019

In-form striker Joe Pigott is determined to complete the job of helping to keep Wimbledon up after Wally’s boys hauled themselves back into contention.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s important home match against Wycombe, Pigott said: “At one point earlier this season we were so far adrift that everyone had written us off and we’ve turned the corner really. It’s a great opportunity for us: we’ve got two games left and six points available to get. We fully believe that we can win both of the games.

“We can’t wait, especially after that last-minute equaliser (at Luton). The game was really tough and to get a point was massive, considering what happened in the game. Hopefully, we can build on that and finish off the season the way we want to.

“It’s a must-win game for us. Results at home in the last few weeks have been pretty frustrating, taking the lead and conceding equalisers. We will be looking to win. It would be another step closer to the points tally that we need. It’s absolutely huge.

“We haven’t lost many games recently and that’s been brilliant. It’s been a bit frustrating not turning the draws into wins, especially because we’ve been in winning positions, but we are really looking forward to Saturday and we will be taking the game to them.”

Pigott has fired 16 goals so far this season, but at the age of 25 he believes there’s plenty more from him to come.

“I am fairly happy with my return, but I probably could have had a few more because I had time out due to injury over Christmas. I want to finish the season as strongly as I can and get some more important goals.

“I always knew that I had it in me, but it was just about being given the opportunity regularly to go out and do it and I think there’s still more to come as well.”
