Glyn highlights defensive resilience after last-gasp win

Post-match reaction after dramatic victory

19 October 2019

Glyn Hodges highlighted the performance of Wimbledon’s defence and goalkeeper Nathan Trott after a fourth successive victory for The Dons.

Pompey were denied by a resolute Wimbledon display, before Terell Thomas pounced to head home a dramatic injury-time winner.

Speaking after the 1-0 win against Portsmouth, Glyn said: “For me, that’s the best performance. Portsmouth are very good and it’s hard to play against a side that cause you problems and keep the ball well. They have got good players in key areas, so they are in a false position. They’ve got quality all over the park, but we stayed in the game with our three centre halves and our keeper. I’d like to highlight them, in particular, as they were getting their heads in the way and blocking, putting their bodies on the line, and stopping crosses. It was great as we were resilient. If you keep in the game there’s always that little bit of quality that could win it for you, which is what happened. Max put a great ball in and it was on a plate for Terell, who put it away well.

“You can’t play well all of the time. If you are not playing well you try and stay in the game and a 1-0 win, the way we did it today, was the most pleasing one of all. The players are working very hard and they are enjoying it, so it’s going well. Training has been great and I woke up this morning quite confident that we could get something. I didn’t want us to leave it quite so late, but sometimes late is the best time to score.”
