Skipper Anthony Gerrard has been praising the team and feels that the last three games have been a turning point for the season. Gerrard scored the winner over Franchise FC on Tuesday which took the club out of the relegation zone but Wimbledon’s late winner on Saturday has seen then drop back into fourth from bottom spot.
Gerrard said, “Obviously it would have been nice to have had nine points from nine if we’d held on at Blackburn, but it has been a fantastic return from these three games. Our game plan worked to perfection there, and that could be a crucial point come the end of the season. It’s fantastic we’ve got a couple of days off, but it’s all about preparation for the Southend game now.”
“From now until the end of the season, particularly at home, we know we’re now always going to be able to play football. We just need to anything to get the three points. We can’t be concentrating on anybody else from here. I’ve been in this position for the past two seasons now so I know what it takes to get out of it. I spoke to the chairman about it, and he was going on about how many goals we’ve conceded. I told him that in previous years it was the back four that kept us up.”
