SEB BROWN says Tuesday night's worrying home 2-1 defeat by Plymouth is no cause for alarm – even though it has cranked up the pressure ahead of two more vital relegation six-pointers.
Boss Terry Brown set a minimum target of six points from three home games in a week for the Dons, which means they must now beat Dagenham on Saturday and Bradford next Tuesday to stay on course.
But AFC Wimbledon's keeper is refusing to press the panic button and is convinced the Dons will get out of the tailspin of seven games without a win.
“I still think it's just going to take that one break to get us going again,” Seb Brown told the Chronicle.
“It's not the end of the world. There's still a long way to go and we could still quite easily finish in the top half if we win four or five games. So it's not a case of panic stations just yet.
“In fact, it''s important not to panic, because the more you panic, the more pressure goes on and it becomes a vicious circle, and we're trying to keep it as upbeat as possible.
“Obviously we are bitterly disappointed to have lost to a team below us who are in the same situation as us, because that obviously gives them the lift we're looking for.
“But we've got two more home games against teams around us and if we can pick up the full six, then it won't be disaster. Win those and we can be back on track.”
Terry Brown was very critical of his team's defending on Tuesday night, but his goalkeeper believes the Dons can learn something from the way Argyle grafted for their win at Kingsmeadow, as they seek to put their ailing form right.
“Everyone was disappointed with the defending, but we lacked a bit of hold-up play up top too, which obviously puts us under a little more pressure,” the former Brentford keeper added.
“To be fair, Plymouth scrapped well and we probably need to instil a bit of that to start grinding out some games. We need to work harder as a team to defend properly and have to eradicate the errors."
