Gary Deegan Pre AFC Wimbledon

17 February 2017

Midfielder looking to start another good run against Wimbledon

Town midfielder Gary Deegan is calling on the whole squad to keep working hard in order achieve Town’s goal of avoiding relegation.

Town currently sit 4 points clear of the drop after a good run of form, but Gary believes Tuesday night’s defeat to Peterborough proves that Town can’t drop their standards and he will be looking to bounce back quickly against AFC Wimbledon.

“I think it kind of burst our bubble a little bit, but we dust ourselves down and go again”, Deegan told the Press.

“It’s disappointing to not keep the run going because the Scunthorpe win was massive for us and gave us a big lift, but this brings us back down to earth again.

“You can’t keep resting, we are not good enough to do that. We need eight or nine bodies every week to be on it and we can’t afford to carry anyone.”

“We need everyone at it, that’s not just one to eleven it’s the whole group.”


Deegan is looking forward to returning to the Greenhous Meadow this weekend and believes Town are more than capable of beating AFC Wimbledon.

“We need to get back to winning ways”, said Gary.

“We’re good at winning here, we know how to do it, whether that’s an ugly battle or not, we seem able to do that. Getting the three points is all that’s necessary.

“They are a big and physical side, but you look at the people in our squad, Toto can look after himself, so we will look forward to the challenge.

“We will do our homework and we will know what to do.”


Meanwhile, Deegan has been an almost ever present this season and he is pleased with his own form.

“It’s been a while since I’ve played consistent football and I’ve benefited from it”, Deegan said.

“It’s just nice to be being in the team and knowing that you are a big part of what’s happening here and you can get a good feel for your performance by playing week in week out.

“The gaffer seems to have put his faith in me and hopefully I’m doing a good enough job to stay there and I will continue to do that.”
