Glyn pleased with display after late setback

Manager’s post-match reaction after defeat versus Shrewsbury

17 October 2020

Glyn Hodges summed up his disappointment with the manner of defeat against Shrewsbury today, but he stressed that he was pleased with the overall performance.

Visitors Shrewsbury snatched a victory at the death that was tough to take for Wimbledon after a game that Glyn's boys had the better of for long spells.

Speaking in his post-match interview, Glyn said: "It was a missed opportunity, but I am pleased with how we played and if we keep playing like that we will pick-up more points than we lose. I felt that we dominated and had a lot more chances. We put balls in the box and they put their bodies on the line. Their keeper made two great saves, one from ‘Sedds’ and one from ‘Pigs’. You look at it and you think there’s only going to be one winner, but all credit to them as they’ve done us with a sucker-punch - we have to move on from it.

"Whether we switched off (for the goal), or the delivery was right, some people were not quite in their positions. That's what kills you, so I feel sorry for them. If they had done that right we would still have been disappointed with drawing, but not getting anything is really disappointing."

Glyn added that his side didn't make enough of promising attacking situations at times when they could have punished Shrewsbury.

"I think they had only one shot on target, but we had miles more of the ball and miles more at the business end. I was quite comfortable, but at 0-0 you always know there is a chance of getting done on the sucker-punch.

"At certain times we have to simplify the game, they are over-complicating it so much. We had great opportunities to get the ball wide, get the ball in the box, and ask questions, and they take the easy route out. I don't know why. It's something that's a continual theme and it's disappointing that we didn't pick up anything today."
