TEAM NEWS

Matt Harrold had a knee operation on Thursday and is out for the rest of the season. Felow striker Liam McAlinden is also missing.
 

THE FORM GUIDE               

Reds have lost five of their last 11 games including their last three. Saturday's loss to Oxford United was our third in a row.

Last Saturday's 2-1 win at Plymouth was Wimbledon's third in their last four games and they haven't lost at home since the end of February, when they went down 2-1 to Oxford.

 

VIEW FROM THE BOSS

Mark Yates: "For 40 minutes last Saturday against one of the best teams in the division we were excellent and that is the standard we have to aspire to between now and the end of the season.

What we can't afford to do against a side with a lot to play for is defend like we did in the second half against Oxford. The players know that and I am expecting a positive response."

WE’VE MET BEFORE?

This will be the fourth Football League meeting against Wimbledon and Reds have won one, drawn one and lost one of the previous three fixtures.
Claude Davis and Dannie Bulman scored twice on our last visit to Kingsmeadow in October 2011 when we won 5-2 while Gwion Edwards was on target back in August when the Dons came from behind to win 2-1.
Reds also beat AFC 3-2 in a League Cup preliminary round tie in July 2011.
