“With everything this club has done to get itself here over 10 years, you can put the fear and the weight of all of that on your shoulders”
Neal ArdleyAFC Wimbledon manager
"You go home and you reflect. I drove home to see my family in Cardiff.
"It was a long drive and then you start looking at yourself.
"I thought, 'What is going to be our best chance now with the situation we are in?'
"It has got to be positive from now until the end of the season."
Despite the club fighting to retain their Football League status, having never been relegated since their formation in 2002, Ardley says he must learn to cope with the situation, in what is his first managerial post.
"It is a pressurised situation we are in now," he said.
"With everything this club has done to get itself here over 10 years, you can put the fear and the weight of all of that on your shoulders.
"You can feel that pressure but I don't think any of that can be more pressure than I put on myself.
"Through fear of failure, or fear of not doing what I believe I was destined to be and what I believe I will be very good at, that's where I looked at myself.
"We are in the situation where you need a calm head and need to lead.
"You need to set an example and if I don't think I am in some aspects, you've got to change and that's what I have tried to do this week."
