Lewington looking to remain grounded

Skipper on taking the season on game at a time...

25 October 2018

Despite putting a run of five consecutive wins during the month of October – captain Dean Lewington is eager to take it one game at a time.

Paul Tisdale’s side currently sit second in the Sky Bet League Two table, three points off table-toppers Lincoln City.

Lewington noted the Dons are still gelling as a squad and are still adapting to the way Tisdale wants them to play. 

“No one is getting carried away as we are nowhere near the finished article, we aren’t getting too excited as we know there is a lot more work needed to get to where we want to be as a team. 

“We’re still miles away but it’s nice while we are still learning that we are in a good vein of form.”

It’s fair to say the 33-year-old has seen many dressing rooms come and go – but insists this current Dons outfit are all pulling in the same direction and providing entertainment for the Dons faithful. 

“There is a good vibe around the place, the fans are buying into it, they made a great atmosphere for us and got right behind us.

"I think the football is miles away from what we’ve been dishing up for the last couple of years - it’s good attacking football and we’ve got some good games here too.

“We want to make this place enjoyable and it’s starting to slowly turn around now and long may that continue.”

The Captain added that it was pleasing to record the Dons’ first win from behind this season having been 1-0 down at the break against Notts County.

“To concede was disappointing but the character to come back is something we’ve not done this season - it was pleasing to come from behind and pick up another three points.

“Nights like Tuesday give us belief as we’ve shown we can come from behind, it makes you feel better about the team knowing you can do that.

“We said at half-time if we got one back we felt the momentum would carry us through so it was a case of not conceding a second and try nick one that would then turn into two or three and that panned out for us.”
