Manager Neal Ardley has said he was very disappointed with the reaction of the players in our loss to Cambridge United at the weekend.

Wimbledon went down two one on the day and it was the end of our unbeaten home run.

Speaking to the Official Site after the game the manager moaned.

‘The big criticism of us in that for the last 30 minutes we lost our way. We became ragged and started playing as individuals. That was an eagerness to try and get back into the game. It had been very competitive up until their second goal. Bayo had a clear chance to us 2-1 up and everybody thought it had gone in. If we had scored then we would have had a lead to protect. But a minute after Bayo’s miss we switched off from a free kick and the pendulum swing their way.’

Ardley goes on to say that for a good hour it was a very even game against a ‘strong and well organised’ opponent and he was pretty happy with how we were doing really, because he knows sides won’t roll over for us, but unfortunately.

‘It was a poor reaction from us to going behind and that was the disappointing thing. We lost our shape and our discipline.’

All thoughts now turn to the FA Cup tie at Wycombe Wanderers at the weekend and with a third round place up for grabs Ardley knows it’s the perfect game to now see a response from the players in again.

‘We’re obviously disappointed, but there’s only one thing we can do now and that’s to pick ourselves up and go again. We will get to work and demand a reaction again. We got that after the Wycombe and Northampton games. We have to try and find that consistency. We win as a team and we lose as a team.’
