The Big Match Preview - AFC Wimbledon

17 October 2014

All you need to know ahead of the visit of AFC Wimbledon to Adams Park tomorrow (k.o. 3pm).

The table-topping Chairboys return home after the mammoth and successful trip to Morecambe last week, and go head-to-head with an AFC Wimbledon team who have a nasty habit of beating the league leaders so far this season.

Gareth Ainsworth will make a late decision on the fitness of Aaron Pierre following his injury in last week's success, while the visitors are without former Chairboy Dannie Bulman through suspension.

The club could break their highest crowd of the season for the third game running with a turnout of close to 4,000 expected, including a strong following from the away fans.

The new Family Ticket is once again available, giving two adults and two juniors access to the Family Stand for just £30.

General tickets will be available to purchase on arrival at the stadium - prices start at £15 for adults, £5 for juniors and all under 7s go free.

Click here to buy in advance via our online portal, or call 01494 441118.

Meanwhile, tickets for upcoming away games at Exeter City and Oxford United will be on sale at the ground.

The Arriva bus service will operate as usual:

Saturday service (for 3pm kick-offs):
Wycombe Railway Station – 13.05 and 14.05
Eden Bus Station – 13.15 and 14.15
Cressex Park & Ride – 13.25 and 14.25
Adams Park – 13.35 and 14.35

Return journeys leave Adams Park at 17.10. There will be a standard fare of £2 single or £3 return irrespective of where passengers join or leave the service. Under 16s and concessionary bus pass holders travel free of charge.

Sam Wood is the cover star of the matchday programme 'Quarters' following his quite spectacular goal last week, while the edition also features an interview with the midfielder plus columns from Phil Slatter, Craig Woods, Steve Wilson, Gareth Ainsworth and Matt Bloomfield, as well as Kids Corner, Opposition View, Wanderers on the Web and much much more.

This edition is 64 pages, costing just £3.

Food and drink
The Vere Suite will be hosting an ale festival with six beers and one cider on offer for fans to enjoy - the lounge is open from midday at no charge, and will also be offering a range of Phat Pies and Chicago Town pizzas.

Meanwhile, the new 'Coffee House' at Adams Park will be open to supporters before and after the game, serving hot and cold drinks, a variety of snacks and Beechdean ice cream.

Stay around after the game for a Q&A in the Vere Suite with a member of the squad.

Sky Bet describe the game as follows: "Sky Bet League 2 leaders Wycombe are the even-money favourites for victory at home to AFC Wimbledon on Saturday. The visiting Dons can be backed at 13/5 and the draw is a 12/5 option. Wycombe are on a seven-match unbeaten run but will have to be wary.

"AFC Wimbledon have claimed impressive victories over MK Dons and Bury in their last two league and cup matches with Adebayo Akinfenwa very much the star. The in-form striker has scored seven goals in his side’s last six matches and is 2/1 to net again at the weekend."
