TERRY Brown had ordered his shot-shy AFC Wimbledon team to shape up in front of goal to take the pressure off top scorer Jack Midson.
The Dons drew another blank at Oxford United tonight, despite having loads of possession and playing some attractive football.
But for all that, home keeper Ryan Clarke was not tested enough by Brown's troops as they fell to a 1-0 defeat.
Brown said: “That's two games now we should have had four or six points from, and it's not bad luck, it's an inability to take the chances we have.
“We lack that little bit of quality in the final third and our final ball is not clinical enough. We had plenty of possession and played some pretty football, but it's what you do in the box that counts.
“If Jack doesn't score, who is going to? Somebody has to step up to the plate, and we need our midfielders to start chipping in with some goals.
“We're not far off playing the sort of football I want us to be playing, we're just short of a few goals. With an attacking midfielder we would have won those last two games.”
