Maxwell: Pleasing To Finally Get Clean Sheet

Goalkeeper Reflects On Goalless Draw At AFC Wimbledon

23 February 2020

Chris Maxwell was pleased to keep his first clean sheet for the Club and feels they have stopped the rot, following the 0-0 draw at AFC Wimbledon.

The Seasiders kept their first clean sheet in three months on Saturday, with a hard fought draw at Kingsmeadow, with Blackpool creating a number of chances to take all three points.

Maxwell, who made a good number of saves at the other end to keep Wimbledon at bay, feels it's a point which the Club can learn a lot from.

"It was a good game and I think everyone put a good shift in," he said.

"The conditions were a big factor in the game again, which has been the case for everyone over the past few weeks. I think we played some great stuff, given the harsh winds, and feel we could have walked away with all three points if things went our way."

Despite the run of form over the past few months, Maxwell insists the morale within the squad is good and that the squad are all committed to each other.

"We know how good we can be as individuals and as a team," he explained.

"There's a really good bunch here and we have a great togetherness. One thing I am really proud of over recent weeks is the character we've showed in games despite things not going our way. The boys are enjoying their football and I believe things can only improve from here on in.

"We've got a clean sheet here at Wimbledon, which is great to finally get, and we're all looking forward to Tuesday night back at Bloomfield Road."
