AFC Wimbledon officially reached their highest ever Football League points total after drawing with Oxford United but manager Neal Ardley doesn’t see it that way.
A goalless stalemate with the U’s takes the Dons to 55 points with four games to go this season and that betters the 54 points achieved under previous manager Terry Brown.
However, Ardley still believes his team were worthy of 56 points last season as they ended the campaign with 53 after being deducted three for fielding an ineligible player.
He said: “The top 12 and 60 points is our aim.
“Last season we got to 56 before we'd had the points deduction. Everyone says Terry Brown got to 54 points but we got to 56 last season and had it taken away from us.
“As far as I'm concerned 56 is my best score and I'm now trying to get to 60 and finish in the top 12 places.”
Wimbledon won’t be letting their foot off the gas though having set a new record with matches to spare and Ardley will take no satisfaction if 55 points is as good as it gets.
He added: “If you're on 48 now and you finish on 55 then you say that's a great end to the season. People will remember the last five games of the season.
“We want to try and stay unbeaten at home and we've got to try and win away from home. That's the two things for us.”
Meanwhile, AFC Wimbledon are hopeful Adedji Oshilaja's neck injury isn't as bad as first feared.
The on-loan Cardiff City defender fell awkwardly midway through the stalemate with Oxford.
