Dobson: Areas to work on

15 January 2013

Despite Wycombe’s recent run of good form which has seen them lose just two of their last 10 league outings, assistant manager Richard Dobson says there’s still room for improvement.

“We weathered the storm for the first five minutes of the second half and fortunately got a goal back, but I still wasn’t comfortable in the three minutes of injury time.”

“We didn’t play well enough and we took our foot off the pedal,” he said. “Sometimes when you score early you think it’s going to be a little bit easier than it actually is, but credit to Wimbledon they came back into the game, scored two goals and put us under pressure.

The Blues battled to a 2-2 draw at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, but Dobson admits the Blues didn’t perform to their full potential.

“It’s a mentality thing, sometimes you take the lead and you think the opposition are going to start falling on the back foot but they didn’t.”

He added: “We didn’t do as well with our battling qualities - we’re normally first to every ball and we normally play good balls into decent areas and put people under pressure, but we didn’t do that with enough quality.

“I think, ultimately, they helped us get something out of the game. They were positive and I’d like to thank them for that.”

“They were terrific but they always are. They’ve got behind us when we’ve been struggling and I think today opitimised their passion for the club. They didn’t stop singing and it was a great turn out.

He said: “The fans were terrific, that’s the reason why I’m doing the press. Gaz can’t speak from trying to shout over fans!

Usually boss Gareth Ainsworth speaks to the press post-match, but Dobson explains why he was on duty this time around.
