Gary Alexander: Determined to help Dons stay up

Gary Alexander is prepared for one of the most important games of his career when AFC Wimbledon take on Fleetwood in their final-day relegation decider.

The Dons striker has returned to full training following an ankle problem and is set to feature at Kingsmeadow in a relegation decider the hosts must win.

Alexander has not found the net since February but is hoping he will be able to help his team-mates avoid the drop before returning to parent club Crawley.

He told the club's official website: "This is massive. It would be high up amongst my list of achievements if I can help AFC Wimbledon stay up.

"After being here for three months, I want to be a part of it and help the lads. We have to do whatever it takes to get the result.

"When we were bottom we would have taken this situation of needing a win from the last game to stay up.

"It does not matter whether that comes through pretty football or the long ball because we need three points to stay in the Football League. If we all stick together then that is going to happen."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
