Hard fought but a good win. We started superbly, then lost control and were perhaps a tad fortunate to go in at half time at 0-0. Second half we were solid, didn't really have much of a goal threat and were lucky with the goal but it was the kind of ball into the box that we haven't seen enough of. Then did well to see it out.

Oxley 7 One great save, solid enough though perhaps could have come out on one or two occasions for aerial balls
Demetriou 7 Linked up very well with Wright, probably in his best run of form since he joined
Ferdinand 6 Unbelievably slow and turns slower than the QE2, a shadow of his former self as he looked panicked when they target him for pressing
Kyprianou 7 Would have been an 8 as he was brilliant, but still had two or three flash moments where his inexperience shows with a rash challenge or poor pass
Timlin 6 Woeful first half, big improvement in the second and looked far more comfortable in the middle
Wright 7.5 Brilliant debut, linked up with Demetriou like they'd played together for years, some much needed creativity
Wordsworth 7 Some great flicks and passes, clearly still building fitness but he's key to our turnaround in form
Leonard 7 Battled hard and was the engine in the middle in a physical battle
McLaughlin 7 Looked to get at them, not a lot came off but he was in the right positions and making the right runs
Cox 6 I know we're playing him deep on purpose but can't help but feel that his talents are wasted there, was growing into the game before he was taken off
Ranger 8 Won everything in the air, gave them real problems, just need someone to run onto those

Subs
Robinson 5 First touch of a donkey which is a shame as he makes superb runs then blows it with his touch
McGlashan 6 Pace, needlessly gave up the ball on occasions
White 6 A bit more solid

Thought Wimbledon were a decent side, very industrious and very fit. A bit lower League in style but we adapted to that and matched them in every department. On another day with different luck then they're the winners tonight.

Promising display and will be good to build confidence, which was clearly flowing at the start of the game tonight. Add in Coker at left-back and we should be up there come the end of the season.
