NEAL Ardley has backed Charlie Sheringham to come good for AFC Wimbledon.
The former Bournemouth frontman – son of ex-England star Teddy - has failed to score in five games since his summer switch to Kingsmeadow.
Sheringham hasn't featured since suffering an ankle injury in the victory against Scunthorpe United last month.
The 25-year-old sustained deep-bone brusing and ligament damage and is currently sidelined with his foot in a protective boot.
However, Ardley has been impressed with his contribution since his arrival in the summer and insists it's only a matter of time before he starts scoring.
He said: "Charlie's injured at the moment, but we're hoping he can start training again in the next 10 days.
"It's not been ideal for him. I couldn't have been more impressed during pre-season.
"He's an intelligent player with great movement. The goals are there.
"I'm chuffed with him and once he scores one I'm confident he'll get a run going."
