The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Ben Baker

DAN­NIE Bul­man is the wrong side of 35 and near­ing the end of his AFC Wim­ble­don con­tract but the vet­eran mid­fielder is hold­ing out hope for an ex­ten­sion.

Bul­man, who has en­joyed lengthy spells at Wy­combe Wan­der­ers and Craw­ley Town dur­ing his ca­reer, was signed by Dons boss Neal Ard­ley in 2014 on a two-year deal.

The 37-year-old shows no sign of wan­ing, hav­ing racked up more than 30 ap­pear­ances this sea­son al­ready, but ad­mits his fu­ture at Kingsmeadow is up in the air.

“It’s not my de­ci­sion how long I have left at this level, it is out my hands,” said Bul­man. “All I can do is play as well as I can and hope­fully nick an­other year and see where we go from there re­ally.

“I want to play as long as I can. If we go up I want to play in League One with th­ese boys, if they want to keep me on.

“I have played in League One most of my ca­reer so I know what it is about.

“The older you get, the wiser you get. You read the game well and I’ve still got the legs so we will see.

“Neal is def­i­nitely one of the bet­ter man­agers I have worked un­der be­cause he is young and un­der­stand­ing, and he is ap­proach­able.

“This club has a great fan base and it is only go­ing to grow.”

Head­ing into the week­end, the Dons were ly­ing eighth in the League Two ta­ble, just one point off the play-offs with 13 games left.
