NEAL ARDLEY says he still looking for a striker and a defender to compliment his squad for next season – but is already very happy with what he has.
“I'd like to think we're in a better position than we were this time last year,” said the Dons boss. “You look at the squad and I'm happy with it.
“There's still one or two we're looking at but we're happy so far and the new players here are doing really well too.
“We'll be looking at getting in another striker and a defender. But if you said to me you had to start the season with this squad, would I be happy? Well, yes I would."
Ardley added: “Recruitment wise, we're ahead of where I thought we might be. We're really happy with the players we've brought in.”
The Dons were as comfortable as it is possible to be in 30 degree heat as they saw off FC United of Manchester 2-0 in Saturday's latest pre-season friendly.
A goal in each half from Luke Moore and Harry Pell gave the Dons the win, although their obvious superiority over the Northern Premier League side should really have yielded more goals.
They have another friendly at Kingsmeadow on Wednesday - against Charlton Athletic.
