AFC Wimbledon boss happy with fitness levels after friendlies in Germany


Wally Downes was happy with AFC Wimbledon’s games in Germany – admitting the tactical fine-tuning is still to come.

Joe Pigott and Tommy Wood scored for the Dons in Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Kickers Offenbach on Saturday.

The League One outfit went down 1-0 to Kaiserslautern on Friday.

Downes said: “Mistakes will be addressed in the next two weeks. The structural work with the team can be a little tedious and we’ve got six weeks of it in pre-season, so I don’t like to fire that into the players with ‘repeat, repeat and repeat’.

“Over the next two weeks, that is when we will get it in their minds. We will edge on with the games and look to be more competitive.

“I’m quite happy with the fitness levels we have reached.”
