PREVIEW: AFC Wimbledon

1 March 2019

Marcus Braddock previews Town's next fixture in Sky Bet League One against AFC Wimbledon

This weekend sees Shrewsbury Town play their second home game in less than a week as AFC Wimbledon visit Montgomery Waters Meadow. The Dons have had a difficult season and currently sit in 24th position with 29 points, four less than 23rd placed Bradford City. They've had a few distractions like cup runs, they've played Premiership West Ham in both the EFL Cup and the F.A. Cup and won 4-2 in the latter. Recent form has seen them win twice in their last five league games with both wins occurring away from home. The two wins have boosted the Dons away form which is now better than their home record, in fact, if you add their four away wins in the cups they've now won ten away games this season. So it's clear that we can't afford to dismiss this as an easy game against the bottom team, we need to be as good as we were against Doncaster at the very least.

 

Top Scorer (cup goals in brackets)

Joe Pigott 8 (3)

Kwesi Appiah 4 (3)

Mitch Pinnock 3 (1)

 

Assists

Mitchell Pinnock 3

Andy Barcham 2

Ben Purrington 2

 

Clean Sheets

Two at home and four away. The Wombles last clean sheet was away at Walsall on February 12th.

 

Away Goals

Wimbledon have scored most of their away goals in the second half (69%) but that seems to have cost them because the second half is also when they concede most (65%).

 

Away stats

Wimbledon have earned an average of 1 point per away game, scoring an average of 0.8 goals and conceding 1.4. Their away form is the 18th best in League One with 17 points from 17 games.

 

Referee

Anthony Backhouse from Cumbria: Games this season: 31. Yellow Cards: 86. Red cards:5.

Assistants: Gary Hilton and Richard Woodward.

Fourth official: Anthony Moore.

 

Squad News

Dave Edwards and Ollie Norburn are both back from suspension but Anthony Grant is starting a 2 game suspension for 10 yellow cards this season. Lenell John Lewis and Romain Vincalot are both injured.

The Dons may be buoyed by the return of strikers Kwesi Appiah and James Hanson and have no new injury worries.

 

Summary

This is one of those games that could be considered a potential banana skin but only if you under-estimate Wimbledon. We need to remember that we're going up against a team that beat Premier League West Ham United a few short weeks ago. Having said that we have reason for a little confidence after two excellent wins against two very good teams. The right result this weekend could see us hit the heights of the upper mid-table with 12 games to go until the end of the season. However, we'll have to work extremely hard against a team fighting for survival.

Shrewsbury Town extended the undefeated run of games with a 0-0 draw against AFC Wimbledon.

Both teams had chances to take the lead during the game but both defences remained resolute and kept clean sheets.

Team News: Sam Ricketts made four changes to his starting line up to face the Dons. In came Scott Golbourne, Ollie Norburn, Dave Edwards and Aaron Amadi-Holloway. Anthony Grant was unavailable due to suspension, Fejiri Okenabirhie and Greg Docherty started on the bench and Ryan Haynes wasn’t involved in the match day 18.

First Half:

AFC Wimbledon came to the Montgomery Waters Meadow with a determination to take the game to Town, and they did just that. The visitors had a good first 10 minute and were pressuring Town’s box.

Despite an energetic start from the away side, Town had the best chance during the opening moments. Ollie Norburn lofted a great through ball towards Tyrese Campbell, but the strikers driven cross flashed across the six-yard box without a Town player able to make a connection.

David Edwards and Campbell were combining well in the Dons half and nearly cut out an opening goal for Town in the 20th minute. Edwards struck a lovely cross towards the Shrews frontman but the striker’s header was well saved by Aaron Ramsdale.

Campbell was ever present for Town at the top end of the pitch and was proving to be a handful for the Dons defence. The forward chased down lost causes and turned half chances into shots at goal.

Josh Laurent was the next Town man to have a clear opportunity to grab a goal. Shaun Whalley did well on the right side to beat his man and put in a cross. The ball swung towards Laurent but the midfielder was unable to find the target with his headed effort.

The half came to an end with the scores remaining level. Both sides had chances but Town would have been confident their team could take the lead in the second-half.

Second Half:

Campbell started the second-half just as he had finished the first - putting pressure on the Dons keeper. The striker received the ball towards the left side of the box but still managed to make the keeper work.

Laurent was another player looking to apply pressure on the Dons back four. The midfielder continued to get in the faces of the opposition and looked to be positive with the ball going forward.

Steve Arnold was called into action just before the 75th minute as Michael Folivi went through on goal. Arnold bravely rushed out towards the ball and managed to get his body on the line to block a Wimbledon goal.

This half was largely a contrast to the first as neither team really had clear goal scoring opportunities. The battle between the two sides was fought out in the middle of the park for the most part.

Town were pushing and pushing during the last moments of the game and nearly took a late lead through Luke Waterfall. The defender got on the end of a cross but the keeper denied Town a late goal.

The game came to an end with the scores remaining level and both team taking a point.
