Ardley wants killer instinct

AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley was clearly disappointed with the manner in which his side lost at Dagenham & Redbridge.

Abu Ogogo's goal gave the Daggers a winning start to 2014 but they finished the game with 10 men after Lawson D'Ath was sent off early in the second half.

However, the Dons could not make the most of their numerical advantage, seeing goalkeeper Chris Lewington and his Dagenham defenders in inspired form to seal the points.

Ardley said: "I look at it (the game) and I wonder whether I'm being biased or not but I thought for large parts, even it was 11 vs 11, we dominated.

"I'm trying to make us a threat going forward. I'm working hard to get players into positions, but we're just not doing enough at the minute and it's frustrating.

"We caused ourselves one or two problems by switching off at the back on breakaways, but it's frustrating. When I looked at us play Mansfield and maybe periods in the Southend game I questioned whether we had enough of an attacking threat.

"I've tried to do something about that and the last couple of games we've looked good going forward, but we've just got to take the lead and convert the chances we're creating.
