Jones - Great Time For My First Goal

Jones - Great Time For My First Goal

Burton equaliser Darren Jones has said he doesn't believe he could've scored his first goal for Wimbledon in more dramatic style if he'd tried.

Speaking to the Official Site following the match the defender said he felt the leveller was nothing more than we deserved in the game for our efforts, and he feels we can take a lot of positives from the match, even though he knows we could've shown a lot of improvement in the first half.

'In the first half we were poor and we were not backing things up when we were getting the ball up top. I did not think Burton created too many chances in the first half, but going forward we did not look quite on it. In the second half we dominated the match.'

Following on from the point we gained against Chesterfield, it's now two from two against promotion chasing teams and Jones feels we can take a lot from that, especially as we more than matched the opposition in both games and at least deserved a point in each, if not slightly more, and against Burton and his goal he added.

'If you look at the opposition we've played against then we will take two points from two games. I just saw everyone going for the ball and I decided to hang back, luckily, it bounced for me and I slotted it in.'

Cheltenham, Northampton and Mansfield next and whilst they won't be easy matches either for different reasons, it is a very good opportunity for us to build on the last two matches and get some points on the board to push us further up the table especially as we have to be mindful of those around us and below who do have games in hand.

This site is looking for bloggers, so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
