Steve Seddon said that he will be giving everything to keep AFC Wimbledon in League One after an impressive loan spell since joining the club in January.
The on-loan Birmingham City left-back has chipped in with two vital goals since joining Wimbledon, but it’s his commitment to the cause that has made him a favourite with fans. Seddon has certainly appreciated the support and he’s determined to complete the job of staying up.
Speaking to iFollow ahead of the game against Bristol Rovers on Friday, Seddon said: “It’s a team game. Whatever way we can win or whatever way we can pick-up points, I’m happy to do so. Oxford played very high. They knew they were safe and they were playing with a lot of confidence, so I think we did well to get a point by grinding it out.
“The first thing at the start of the week is that you want to pick-up the points on the Saturday. Obviously, we are playing on Friday this week, but that’s all we are looking to do. We just have to focus on the next game because three points would be massive in terms of helping us to stay up.
“It’s the same as every week, I will go out there and give it my all. I want to do my best for the team and for the fans as well because they deserve it. It’s sold out so it will be a great occasion and hopefully we can repay the fans for all their support this season.
“At this stage of the season you can’t put a price on points. Every point we pick-up could be the one that keeps you up. It’s a real positive vibe. In both 0-0 draws (versus Shrewsbury and Oxford) we probably hoped to do more attacking-wise and have more of the ball, but we picked up points. The Shrewsbury game kick-started a run of four clean sheets for us, so we hope that Oxford does the same for us."
Seddon added that he’s learned plenty from Wally Downes and the coaching staff since arriving at Wimbledon.
“I’m really enjoying it. For me, the last year football-wise, has been the best for me. I’ve been able to get experience out on loan: I love Stevenage and I’m loving it here. I’m just trying to do my best here and I’m really enjoying it.
“It’s great to learn off everyone here. They have experience at higher clubs with their coaching roles elsewhere. The manager here and all his staff have all played themselves, which is good. They know what the situations in games are like and they know what it’s like to be in our shoes, which is good. It’s good to have that sort of relationship.”
