STACY Long insists AFC Wimbledon have a score to settle when they face Bradford City on Saturday.
The Dons were thrashed 5-1 at Valley Parade earlier in the season during a horrendous run which saw Terry Brown axed as boss after just nine games.
Long admits they have never recovered from their disastrous start to the campaign, and remain rock-bottom ahead of the visit of the Bantams at the weekend.
“It really hurt after that defeat,” said the Dons midfielder.
“It wasn't a nice feeling to lose by that many goals, but hopefully we can use that as motivation this time around.
“The squad remember the anger they felt afterwards and now it's a chance to try and reverse the tide.
“After winning our first game of the season against Chesterfield, albeit fortunately, we had two disastrous results on the road and that has stuck with us.
“But we can't feel sorry for ourselves. It's a different squad now and we have to believe we can get out of it.”
