Woody: We don’t fear any team

Experienced midfielder on our fightback at Ipswich

29 August 2021

Alex Woodyard had mixed feelings about Wimbledon's battling draw at Ipswich Town.

The experienced midfielder expressed his disappointment with the goals conceded, which gave his side a mountain to climb at Portman Road, but he praised the desire shown to salvage a point in front of 611 travelling Dons supporters.

“It’s great for the fans, and I’m pleased that they can go away with a point," said Alex. "I’m so disappointed with the goals we conceded, they were sloppy and we can do better than that.

“We never give in, Robbo and all the coaches have instilled that into us. To be honest it's in our make-up as players as well, we are fighters. The support we had today was brilliant, you could hear them right throughout the game – they were noisier than the home fans. I’m very pleased for the fans, but we are disappointed with our performance.”

Woody felt it was a 'soft' penalty decision to award Ipswich a spot-kick after a challenge by Will Nightingale on Wes Burns.

“You’ve got to look where he’s going – he’s not going towards the goal. I think it was soft, but the referee gave it. We showed character again. When we played Bolton we came back to get a point and today we battled back for a point. It’s a tough place to come, but where we are as a group we go into every game fearing no one.

“I think we deserved a point. They’ve got great individual players, but if we had got our game to where it should have been we could have come here and got three points. We are all happy to get a point though after being 2-0 down.”
