The Big Match Preview - AFC Wimbledon

1 April 2016

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League 2 clash with AFC Wimbledon at Adams Park (k.o. 3pm).

Wycombe Wanderers vs AFC Wimbledon
Saturday 2nd April 2016, k.o. 3pm
Adams Park, HP12 4HJ
Referee: Mr Brendan Malone

Seven games to go, 21 points to play for. Wanderers have reached their pre-season points target and are set to attack the final month of the season and give everything they've got in a bid to achieve a welcome bonus of another adventure in the play-offs.

Facing them on Saturday are an AFC Wimbledon outfit also vying for a place in the top seven, although their form has hit the buffers in recent weeks, winning only one of their last seven games.

However, a sequence of seven victories from a possible eight before that run thrust them into the promotion picture and they've recently strengthened their squad at both ends of the pitch with the loan signings of defender Darius Charles and striker Rhys Murphy for the run-in.

Wycombe are enjoying their best run on home turf for over five years, winning 1-0 in each of their last four outings, which has contributed to them already eclipsing the number of clean sheets they achieved last season.

Their latest shut-out came in a 0-0 draw with Notts County on Easter Monday which came with only one recognised central midfielder in the side due to injury and suspension, although Matt Bloomfield and Luke O'Nien have a chance of returning to contention after their recent absences.
