Leam Richardson on Latics' 4-0 win at AFC Wimbledon

"We're chuffed with the win.  I've got to compliment the lads, out of possession we've worked terrificly hard today.

"You know you're going to get tested throughout against Neal Ardley's team and we had to work for every inch and every goal today, and thankfully we got the win.

"When you get a group who want to play for each other, be successful for each other and work hard for each other, you get the breaks that you deserve.

"The lads were certainly clinical.  If you don't make chances then you start to get concerned, but we went into half time thinking we should have been 2-0 or 3-0 up.

"Wimbledon defended resolutely and they've got some good players under a good management team.  We had to work extremely hard to beat them.

"After we went 1-0 up and they got the sending off it helped, but our lads continued to graft and they really enjoyed themselves out there.

"It's great to get a result like this  for the fans away from home, and lastly we got a well deserved clean sheet."

Leam Richardson on Max Power back amongst the goals

"It surprised me how long Max has gone without a goal because he's certainly got goals in him.  He's goes on up the pitch and has enough shots and he's got a fantastic appetite for the game, so I'm made up for Max today."
