Dannie Bulman hails strength in depth of AFC Wimbledon squad

21 September 2015

AFC Wimbledon midfielder Dannie Bulman praised the Dons' squad depth following their 2-1 win over Notts County in Sky Bet League 2.

The visiting Magpies looked to be heading for all three points but a dramatic comeback sealed the win for Wimbledon, with Bulman on hand to grab the equaliser before Adebayo Akinfenwa's late header.

The 36-year-old believes having a strong squad and keeping the players fresh is key - something that showed with their last-gasp efforts on Saturday afternoon.

“It is all about strength in depth, having options on the bench, and momentum. We have got it over the last five games so long may that continue,” the midfielder told the club's official website.

“We have had time to do some real work on the training pitch. We have been doing work on switching play and a bit more leg work to keep us ticking over.

“The manager is all about keeping the players fresh, but you want to have the energy and the legs to keep going like we did today so that you can push for three points.”

And Bulman was delighted with his goal – just his second for the club – that helped to send the Dons up to 12th in the Sky Bet League 2 table.

“I was in the right place at the right time in the 85th minute and it was not bad for a 36-year-old,” added the midfielder.

"I don’t know why I was in the box, but I was in there for a reason. I managed to lift the ball over the goalkeeper. It seemed to go in slow motion because everyone assumed I would miss, even the manager thought I would!"
