Joe Pigott is feeling assured in front of goal but admits the pressure is on AFC Wimbledon if they are to survive relegation from League One this season.

Their mission to escape the division’s bottom four took a major blow when substitute Igor Vetokele snatched a late winner for Charlton in the 91st minute.

The Dons’ leading scorer rued the chances which were missed against his former club but has turned his focus to the trip to Shrewsbury Town coming this weekend.

Speaking after the Charlton defeat, he said: “I'm really disappointed. I thought they were there for the taking today and we could've come away with a point very easily.

“The goal at the end, it's pretty deflating to say the least.”

Pigott scored a hat-trick in a crucial 4-3 win over relegation-threatened Rochdale, helping Wimbledon secure a second win on the bounce following victory at Walsall.

But defeat to Charlton leaves them now seven points adrift of safety as Oxford United won away to Blackpool.

Shrewsbury represents another opportunity to gain three points and, with Folivi off the mark with his first senior goal, there’s hope the two forwards can guide Wimbledon to safety.

Pigott added: “I'm feeling pretty confident, I just need to keep making the right decisions - which I could have done a bit better today - so hopefully next week I can try and do that.

“I just wanted to hit the target, really, which I'm really disappointed in myself about but I'll keep going and keep trying to score.

“The pressure is really on us and we need to produce, like we've done in the last two games, but it's just unfortunate today we played well and didn't get the right result.”
