Pay on the gate at AFC Wimbledon

14 September 2018

Stuart McCall continued his unbeaten start at the club last weekend with a 3-3 draw at home to Rochdale. His side took 2-0 and 3-1 leads thanks to goals from Lee Novak, Ryan Colclough and Charlie Goode, but the visitors levelled the score with seven minutes remaining. 

AFC Wimbledon, who are managed by Neal Ardley, won their last match away at Gillingham. Striker Joe Pigott got the game’s only goal to move his team up to 13th position.

TEAM NEWS…

McCall confirmed that both Matthew Lund and Novak picked up knocks last weekend, but the duo have both trained on Thursday and will be in contention to play.

George Thomas has returned to the club following international duty with Wales Under-21s.

However, United will again be without captain Rory McArdle (heel) and right-back Jordan Clarke (hamstring).

Goalkeeper Matt Gilks (knee) and Rory Watson (arm) also remain long-term absentees. 

PAST ENCOUNTERS…



The two sides played out two 1-1 draws last season. In April, Novak scored late on in their last meeting to equalise. In the same season, Conor Townsend struck against Wimbledon on the opening day of the campaign.
