Neal Ardley: Back to basics

Neal Ardley: Back to basics

The Dons looked to have banished their relegation fears after lifting themselves out of the League Two drop zone with a fine run of form since the turn of the year.

But Saturday's defeat by fellow strugglers Barnet means they are still looking over their shoulder, hovering just three points above the bottom two.

"We have to pick the boys up so that they stay mentally and physically strong," said Ardley.

"We are capable of winning our last four games. We have to get back to basics in training during the week and we will be working incredibly hard to get what we need.

"We have a good bunch of lads and we cannot let all the good work we have done in the last few months go to waste.

"All the teams down there are in form now and we have to make sure that we do not lose form at a crucial time. We will do everything in our power to make sure that does not happen."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
