Brown brings in psychologist as Dons focus on play-offs
Terry Brown called on a sports psychologist as he begins focusing his AFC Wimbledon squad on winning the Blue Square Premier play-offs.
The psychologist was part of a play-off focus day on Monday organised by the Dons boss after Saturday's 4-0 thumping of already-relegated Histon confirmed their place in the top five.
Despite three league games remaining, Brown wants his players concentrating entirely on next month with the intention of taking the Dons back into the Football League after a nine-year absence.
“We watched some DVDS of games, running through our strengths and not focusing on any weaknesses,” he said of Monday.
“It was to show the players how good we are.
“There was also a sports psychologist which was something slightly different and he talked about play-offs in different sports and how they effect people.
“It was a fun day and the boys really enjoyed themselves and look happy for it, now we are 100 per cent focussed on May.
“We want to win the play-offs and we should be positive because we have had a fantastic season.”
Danny Kedwell took his goal tally to 25 for the season with a double against Histon, while Luke Moore added the other goals.
Last night, the Dons were dumped out of the London Senior Cup at the semi-final stage by Hendon.
Having gone 2-0 down, late goals from Christian Jolley and Reece Jones forced extra time but a third goal for the away side denied Wimbledon a second successive final.
