“We’re quite fortunate that this bizarre number of points and the amount of teams on the same points has happened now, because we needed it.
“It’s obviously fell luckily for us at the moment – we’ve just got to take advantage of that and do our best to get out of it.”
“We’ve got five cup finals – that’s going to determine our season.
“We’ve got to go into every game, regardless of form, regardless of anything and fight for the three points. At the end of the day, there’s a lot on the line here, so we’ve got to be prepared to do that.”
“That sums up Wimbledon as a club,” said Appiah. “That fighting spirit, that never-say-die attitude and that’s why we’re climbing out of it. Long may that continue, because we’re heading in the right direction.”
