Has Jack Rudoni outgrown League One? Rob Tuvey: "We keep him grounded"

Dons assistant manager Rob Tuvey feels that AFC Wimbledon are the right club for Jack Rudoni to hone his craft.

Rudoni was the driving force behind Wimbledon's 3-2 victory over Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday, registering a goal and an assist but Tuvey stressed that the player has to keep working and should not get carried away.

He exclusively told Capital Football: "Definitely Jack has got a good career in front of him but he is a young player and he is learning and developing. He's got to trust the process that we put in place here.

"He has got to trust that he has a development plan in place and has got to keep working to that. He can't get too far ahead of himself and neither can we. We need to make sure that we're constantly there putting that development plan in place and keeping him grounded because we know his talent and we know there's definitely more to come from him.

Wimbledon were 3-1 up at half-time but the game hung in the balance until the end due to Dons' failure to kill it off despite dominating ball possession and creating a number of goal chances.

Crewe Alexandra pulled one back through Chris Porter in the 89th minute and even went close to an equaliser.

Tuvey called on his team to kill off games.

He said: "It's something that we need to constantly look at and constantly look how we take them chances. I think the biggest thing that I would say that was really good tonight was that we've created them chances.

"If you look tonight was probably the most we created like on Saturday. If we look at our xG on Saturday, it was well above what Portsmouth had. I think tonight if we look at our expected goals we've created a numerous amount of chances.

"We're getting in them areas and I think it's just that little bit of composure just to put that ball into the back of the net.
