Jack Midson has praised manager Neil Ardley for his commitment to training and insists it’s been the key to pulling them through the season. 

The Kingston-based club are still in danger of relegation bac to non-league football, and face a crunch tie against already-promoted and champions-elect Gillingham.

But Midson vowed the Dons can only rely on themselves to remain in League Two and not on the results of other teams, but accepts with only a one point advantage over 23rd placed Barnet, a win is vital.

“We have to concentrate on what we need to do and we must not get beat,” said Midson.

“Gillingham may be on a high and pushing to win the league, but we need to stick to the script of what we have worked on in training and I think we will be alright.

“Neal is very committed in training and he is out on the training pitch for every minute of every session. Neal has been out there for every minute though to give us the best possible chance to get out of the situation we are in.

“All we can do is everything in our power to stay up because we cannot do anything about results elsewhere.

“Every player has to stick to the script of what we have been working on.”

Midson is also keen to hit his 100th appearance for AFC Wimbledon and he is determined to celebrate this with League Two survival.  

He said: “I have not achieved this at any other club and if I do it in two seasons then that is impressive for me.

“My time at the club has gone really quickly and I have enjoyed my time here, but I have another year on my contract and I want that to be at Wimbledon in the Football League.”
