Pre Match: Coleman

14 September 2012

Manager John Coleman reflects on the week gone by as his team prepare for a trip to AFC Wimbledon this weekend on the back of last Saturday's defeat at home to Burton Albion.

“We spent the best part of four hours on Monday morning dissecting the game (Burton Albion fixture) with the players,” said Coleman. “We offered our advice and we asked them to come up with solutions as well.

“We are capable of defending well as a team but we are going to sleep at times and that is something which has to be eradicated. We have tried to transfer that onto the training pitch and I have got to say what I have seen so far has been positive; the work rate at training has been good and the effort in trying to understand has been good. We’ve done our best to try and rectify it, we’ve put on sessions to try and remedy the problems and we’ve asked the players to watch what happened, to dissect what happened, and to also try to put it into practice."

He added: "Wimbledon will be a tough game like every game in this league is. I’ve always said I want to give teams tough games and I don’t think we gave Burton a tough enough game on Saturday so hopefully we can rectify that this weekend.”
