Steve strives to reignite his second spell

Attacking full-back determined to move Wimbledon forward

23 October 2020

Steve Seddon is eager to help Wimbledon hit the goal trail again by making the most of his attacking instincts.

The on-loan Brimingham City full-back has enjoyed his second spell here, but expressed his frustration with the past week after two narrow defeats.

Steve said: “Wimbledon is a great place to be, the club is good to be around, but we want to keep building, keep improving throughout the season, and hopefully the points will come. I’m really enjoying it here and playing regularly is good for anyone. It’s hard to improve if you are not playing every week and as a footballer that’s what you get paid to do, so you want to do it. We have a good group as well.

“We play wing-backs so that they can join in the attacks and be responsible, not just for the defensive side, but for the attacking side as well. It puts a bit more expectation on the shoulders of those playing out wide. In the past two games we haven’t scored, so we’ve got to find different ways of scoring. We’ve got to find ways of breaking teams down and putting away our chances.

“I think we’re aiming a lot higher (than my first spell here). We’re performing well on the pitch and it’s almost harder to take when you come away with a loss and you know you’ve performed well. It definitely makes it harder to take when you get home and you are replaying things over in your head, but we will keep coming out and giving it a big go.

“We’ve got to be ruthless with ourselves. We’ve got to know that we are going to places to pick-up points. We went there (Hull) and did well, but we conceded a poor goal, probably should have scored, and then you are thinking, ‘we can’t feel sorry for ourselves’. We have to get ready for Saturday’s match, which is a very winnable game.”

Steve believes that there is plenty more to come from his Birmingham City team-mate Connal Trueman, who has settled in well to life at Wimbledon.

“I think Connal is doing great and I think he’s going to go from strength to strength really. In the Swindon match he was coming to claim crosses, Shrewsbury he didn’t have much to do, and he played well at Hull. Connal is doing his job and I think he’s only going to keep improving. He will keep showing people how good he is. From my experience, I know that he’s very good.”
