Skipper Alan Bennett has said that our result against Chesterfield does show the progress that Wimbledon are making, even though we have struggled for consistency in our performances and results so far this season.

With Neal Ardley making five changes following the York defeat, Bennett partnered Andy Frampton at the back and he said he was pleased with the efforts of all the players on the evening.

Speaking to the Official Site after the game, he explained.

‘We felt as a group that we let the fans down on Saturday. It was important that we produced a reaction. It was pretty positive because we put in a good performance, we came out in the second half and upped the tempo and really drove down the flanks.’

Bennett says that Chesterfield’s quality is obvious for all to see, but he was pleased with how we defended as a group and battled as a team on the day to cope with them when they were on top and we were under the cosh.

With so many changes made the skipper also comments that some players would’ve felt very disappointed to have been left out, and he references that he didn’t think Will Antwi and Darren Jones had done much wrong, but it’s all about competition, keeping things fresh and with players going out, those who came in gave a good account of themselves and what it shows now is we have strength and quality in depth and those who came in will be fighting to keep the shirt, and those who lost out will be fighting to get their shirt back.

It’s all part of moving forward and the defender knows that sometimes you do have to take two step backs to ensure your step forward is based on solid foundations and not a blip, and that’s what everyone is working hard to achieve.
