Pigott: ‘Fantastic’ stadium can help us reach another level

In-form Dons striker praises fans for making the dream become reality

4 November 2020

Joe Pigott thanked supporters for providing the platform to push Wimbledon forward by contributing towards our new stadium after he scored the first goal on Plough Lane return night.

After striking his fifth and sixth goals of the season, Pigs was quick to acknowledge our supporters after being asked for a message to Dons fans watching last night’s game from all around the world.

“Thank you so much for all the effort and the money that’s been put into this fantastic stadium. We are building some great blocks for the future and this club can go anywhere, as we’ve all seen in the short period from when the club was reformed. It’s absolutely fantastic, it’s so unique. You have to meet the fans and speak to them to find out how much the club means. And I’d also like to give a quick mention to the Dons Local Action Group as the people involved have been doing incredible work during these times. We’ve got some special fans.

“As a team we are trying to build up to be a heavyweight in this league eventually. The building blocks have been put in place with this magnificent stadium and we will keep trying to improve. The gaffer is doing a great job and we are looking to take us to the next level on the pitch."

Pigs believes that the Dons have shown enough so far this season to suggest that an improved League One finish can be achieved, but he was disappointed to miss out on all three points against Doncaster.

“I am really pleased to get the goals, but I’m devastated that we couldn’t quite see it through. They probably deserved a draw, but to score at the time we did we should really be seeing the game out. We are four unbeaten now, so we will take the point and keep building.

“We haven’t been outclassed by any team yet this season. We’ve got a specific way of playing: we like to be solid, counter, and score from our opportunities. I’m really pleased with how we’ve started. We’ve lost a few points from winning positions, which has been frustrating, but hopefully we can turn that around later in the season.”
