Glyn Hodges has spoken of his pride after being asked to take charge of first-team matters this weekend and he has called on supporters to help Wimbledon come through a difficult spell.
Speaking ahead of the match at Peterborough United on Saturday, Glyn said: “I am immensely proud as I go back a long time with this club. I’m a local boy, I represented the borough of Merton and I was brought up in Mitcham. I have mixed feelings because of the circumstances. It’s still something I’m really proud to do and I hope to be successful while I’m in the seat.
“I’ve been a part of this club for near enough 10 years, in one position or another, and the fans were brilliant in the end of season run-in. Now we need them, we need everybody, and I’m on about everyone rallying around, the staff, the players, and the fans. We need to get behind the players and we need all the help we can get. It’s not over and done with, we are more than capable of getting out of the situation. When we go up to Peterborough and carry on with games in this period, we just want their support, as always, and we will be giving 100 per cent on Saturday.
“We’ve got to put the performances in for them to back us. We still need the fans to be patient with us, confidence is key in any football team. With any mistakes, it’s about how you react and how you pick them up. Being a young team, sometimes it’s quite difficult for them. The older ones are used to it, they know they make mistakes. It’s just making sure that as a group and as a club we are together: we fight, we move forward, and we get out of this mess.”
