The Dons boss believes that his side should have had a penalty
AFC Wimbledon manager Terry Brown believes that his side should have been given a penalty in the first half of their 1-0 defeat against Oxford last night.
The Dons chief felt that referee Keith Stroud should have pointed to the spot after Sammy Moore was brought down in the area and it was a costly decision as Dean Morgan scored a second half winner for the U’s.
“I thought it was a definite penalty in the first-half for us,” he said after the game. “If we had scored the first goal we would have won that game today.”
The Wimbledon boss believes that his side need to improve in the final third in order to finish in the highest possible position.
“I do not think we are ruthless enough in the box,” he said. “How on earth we have not scored a goal tonight or at Bristol on Saturday, I do not know.
“We must have had 10 good chances in those two games and we hardly tested the goalkeepers.
“It all counts for nothing if you play well in midfield and then do not punish teams in the box. I thought we played good attacking football, but it was irrelevant in the end.
“They were always dangerous on the break and took their chance when they got it. We never really tested their goalkeeper.”
Wimbledon are at home on Saturday against Burton Albion.
