Match Preview | AFC Wimbledon

28 January 2022

Town continue to rack up the miles on the bus this week as they travel to the newly built Plough Lane tomorrow.

Shrewsbury Town are back in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday as they travel to the capital to face AFC Wimbledon at Plough Lane.

Salop are looking to get back to winning ways after two draws and a loss in their past three games (0-0 against Crewe Alexandra and Gillingham and 0-1 against Bolton Wanderers) left Salop 17th in the league table.

Steve Cotterill’s side will aim to get the double over Wimbledon this season having already defeated the Dons 2-1 at Montgomery Waters Meadow at the end of September.

Wimbledon are currently 20th in the league table, one place and one point above the drop zone. They have, however, played a game less than all the teams below them and could pull further away from the drop with a win against Salop on Saturday.

Name: AFC Wimbledon

Re-founded: 2002 (19 Years Ago)

Chairman/Owner: Joe Palmer

Biggest Win: 9-0 vs Slough Town, Isthmian League Premier Division, 2007.

Biggest Defeat: 5-0 vs York City, Conference Premier, 2010.

Highest League Finish: 15th, Sky Bet League One, 2015/16

One to Watch: Jack Rudoni

Having lost top goal scorer Ollie Palmer to National League side Wrexham at the beginning of the week, Dons fans will be relying on midfielder Jack Rudoni to carry on scoring goals like he has done so far this season. Before Palmer left, Rudoni was the club's second most creative player with seven goals and four assists in 29 appearances.

Now in his second season as a first-team regular for Wimbledon, Rudoni has made himself one of the first names on Mark Robinson’s team sheet. At the age of just 20, Rudoni is in the early stages of his career in professional football, and if he carries on the way he has started, Rudoni will have a long and successful career at the very top level.
