David Dunn has been pleased with the progress made this week in training ahead of Saturday’s trip to AFC Wimbledon.
Dunn, who will take charge of his second match on Saturday since being appointed interim manager last week, believes the squad are ready for the task and wants to see more of the same from his squad after an improved performance at Bristol Rovers last time out.
“The lads have done well this week and have really impressed me,” he explained.
“Obviously the current situation surrounding the managerial change can be tough and that bit of uncertainty could have an effect, but things have been really good in camp this week.
“We’ve had a decent weeks preparation, and hopefully we can go down to Wimbledon and put in a positive performance and get the result we all want, which is a win.”
Saturday’s opponents come into the game on the back of a 5-0 defeat at Oxford United on Tuesday evening – a game which Dunn attended.
“I was there on Tuesday evening, and I thought it was tough for them,” Dunn said.
“Oxford played very well both in and out of possession and made things difficult for Wimbledon, but I’m not naïve enough to think it will be the same game on Saturday. It will be a difficult game for us, as they’ve actually been on a decent run over the past few weeks. They’re the home side as well, which always changes things slightly.
“I know their manager, Glyn Hodges, very well and he’ll be wanting to see a reaction from his players after Tuesday, so we will have to be focused and ready and be at our best for the game, which I’m confident will be the case."
