Glyn's post-match interview at Accrington

Manager's reaction after away defeat

1 February 2020

Glyn Hodges said that Wimbledon's performance at Accrington today was unacceptable and he apologised to our supporters afterwards.

Following the 2-1 defeat, Glyn said: “I apologise for that first-half. The goal gave the fans something to shout about, but the performance wasn’t acceptable. We appreciate their support, they were fantastic again today, and we thank them. There is lots to work on, there will be plenty of reviews and analysis. We will be getting back to working on putting things right for next weekend.

“You can’t always feel your best. Sometimes you might feel under the weather or have stiff legs, but you have to understand how you grind out results. We are lacking a bit of experience in that department, so you just have to know that there’s a job to do. The minimum you have to give is to do your job and be reliable in the position you are in. We’ve just spoken in there after the game and they have to take it on board."

Glyn added that he attempted to come up with solutions during the game, but the quality just wasn't there from his players.

“We had about three different formations in the second-half, just trying to get something to click, but the quality of our passing and crossing was not good enough.

“The 10 men helped us make a fist of it, but I was really disappointed with the performance and they way we went about it. It was probably the worst display since I’ve been back here in 14 months. We could have maybe nicked something, but the quality wasn’t there today.

“We just couldn’t string two passes together in the first-half. You can’t blame the conditions. The goals we conceded were easily stoppable. We set things out in training, but we didn’t carry it out today. We need to make sure that we learn from it. You can’t do it every now and then, we need to perform every time. Even if we are not playing well, there are still things we need to do, shape-wise and with our defending, that helps you get a point, or even three points. You haven’t got to play well to win matches, but you have to stay in games."
