NEAL Ardley is confident he has the right characters needed to beat the drop in AFC Wimbledon’s dressing room.
The Dons twice threw away the lead against York yesterday before midfielder Harry Pell netted for the second successive match at Kingsmeadow to secure a vital three points.
That result lifted Wimbledon out of the League Two relegation zone and boss Ardley believes the group can stay clear of danger as the season draws to a close.
"We do not care how the goals go in,” Ardley said after the York victory. “We have good characters in the dressing room now and that is something I felt we lacked earlier in the season.
“I managed to stay quite calm even when they pegged us back because I liked the performance levels and the way that we constantly pushed forward.
"I thought that we could have been out of sight after the first-half. I did not think they offered any threat, but it was 1-1 at half-time. I had to keep the boys pushing forward in the second-half.
I thought we were the most likely to win it, but I had to keep directing the boys to play the right way and take the emotion out of it.”
The Wimbledon manager confirmed Chris Hussey was omitted from the squad due to illness.
