Captain Woody: Our best win so far

Post-match reaction from the match-winner versus Oxford

21 April 2021

Alex Woodyard rated last night's victory versus Oxford as the best win since Mark Robinson was appointed as Head Coach.

The midfieldfer's all-action display - capped by his first Wimbledon goal - summed up the battling qualities that the Dons required to complete an impressive turnaround against a side chasing a play-off spot.

We talked to Alex straight after the final whistle of a match that edged Wimbledon closer to League One safety. 

“I am just so pleased that we managed to get the three points," said Alex. "Obviously, it’s great to get my first goal for the club, but as long as we won – that’s the main thing. We knew that it would be a different test, they are a good team, but we stuck at it. It’s four wins on the bounce – unbelievable.

“We stayed relaxed (after Oxford scored). We knew at half-time what the game was all about, they are a good team as they are going for the play-offs, but we just showed character to get back into the game and to go on and win it. We probably didn’t have as much possession today, and we didn’t produce the football we had in previous games, but we’ve shown that we can win matches in all different ways. I would say that’s probably our best win because we were a great team and we showed that character.

“That’s probably the most important goal I’ve scored. I am so proud of the lads, the staff, and everyone. I’m just gutted that the fans are not with us at the games to live with what we are going through. I just hope we can carry this form on.”
