Blues boss praises sacked Brown
BLUES boss Gary Waddock has paid tribute to the achievements of Terry Brown, who was sacked as AFC Wimbledon manager ahead of the Dons' Adams Park showdown.
Brown led them to three promotions during his five years in the hotseat, including taking the reformed Dons into the Football League against all the odds.
He was given the boot after Tuesday night's defeat to Torquay but is set to join supporters in the stands on Saturday.
And Waddock was full of praise for the job his predecessor at Aldershot Town had done with Wimbledon.
He said: "In the period of time he's been at Wimbledon as manager, he's been very successful.
"I spoke to him on Wednesday - he's not only a very good manager, he's a top bloke as well. I let him and his assistant Stuart Cash know they had done an excellent job at the club.
"I wanted to ring them up and remind them how well they have done for that football club and how proud they should be of what they have achieved.
"I'll look forward to seeing them Saturday and hopefully after the game we can have a nice conversation over half a lemonade."
With Brown's departure, and with Wimbledon having injury and suspension problems of their own, it looks an ideal time for Wanderers to face the Dons - but Waddock's having none of it.
He said: "I wouldn't say they are in disarray, I would say they are a very good club, they are well organised."
