PROSECUTING THE DEFENCE

THE accepted football wisdom is to give a team 10 games into a new season to get a proper perspective. So what have we learnt after a head-shaking 4-1 loss to Newport County perched a couple of rungs below following on from back-to-back home wins over the leaders and a top four side?

ANOTHER WAY TO WIN

WIMBLEDON answered some pertinent questions as they found another way to win to back up their demolition of league leaders Burton Albion with a resilient 1-0 victory over dogged Morecambe at Kingsmeadow on Saturday.

TWO-GOAL BAYO BOUNCES BREWERS

THE goal drought is finally over for Adebayo Akinfenwa, Matt Tubbs got another one, the defence kept a clean sheet and a home-grown youngster is wowing them as it all came spectacularly together for Wimbledon to end Burton Albion’s unbeaten start to the season at Kingsmeadow on Tuesday.

MANAGERLESS AND THE MANAGER

ACCRINGTON STANLEY players did it for the club and managers (past and present) to send Wimbledon on the long way home again with nothing. You wonder if Neal Ardley gets the same hunger and commitment from his players when the chips are down.

TUBBS 6 DEFENCE 11

HERE’s a snapshot of Wimbledon’s season so far. Matt Tubbs has six goals from six league outings, the Dons are joint highest scorers in League Two, yet on the flip side the porous defence has leaked 11 goals with only two teams yielding more.

BORO-ING IN ON BAFFLEMENT

WIMBLEDON scored first and went down again at home, playing Stevenage into form. Nothing surprising there, but what baffled was Neal Ardley’s choice of tactics and substitutions, adding to the general unease of a promising season turning sour.

THE INEVITABLE FATALISM

IT’S the fatalism that it was going to happen. Coming off two gutsy away wins and up against a team at home point-less and without a goal, it was all expected … a banker away win on the Pools.

OUT OF THE OLD DONS PLAYBOOK

IT was a win that moistened the eyes of the old codgers. One right out of the old Dons playbook. A real smash and grab raid that had the enraged home supporters in howls of indignation.

BETTER TEAM, SAME OUTCOME

THE DONS may be a better team but the outcome was the same as Wimbledon’s hopes of a comeuppance victory over the Milton Keynes pariahs came to naught in another all too quick exit from the League Cup on Tuesday.

CLUES FOR WINNING FORMULA

TWO points dropped late on against a side likely to figure in the promotion hunt, but there were also plenty of positives in Wimbledon’s first hit out of the season against Shrewsbury Town at Kingsmeadow on Saturday.
