PREVIEW: AFC WIMBLEDON (H)

21 October 2019

THE Brewers take on AFC Wimbledon at the Pirelli Stadium tomorrow (kick off 7.45pm) - get all the information you need with our match preview.

HEAD 2 HEAD

THIS fixture last season saw goals from Stephen Quinn, David Templeton and Liam Boyce and ended as a 3-0 win for the Brewers - with Quinn's volley arguably the pick of the bunch.

In the fixture played at Kingsmeadow, the Brewers secured three away points in a 2-0 win against the Dons with Jamie Allen and Templeton both getting on the score sheet.

In total, we have won four, drawn three and lost three of our games against AFC Wimbledon.

BREWERS TEAM NEWS

Albion have the same squad of 18 that travelled to the Fleetwood fixture last weekend, meaning Stephen Quinn (knee) is likely to miss out.

"I don't think Stephen Quinn is going to make it - we'll give him a go (in training) but it's more likely to be Saturday," said manager Nigel Clough.

"It should be the same squad but there might be a few changes, with the manner of the defeat on Saturday.

"Certainly that's an option. Liam Boyce might be pushing for a start, as might one or two others."

AFC WIMBLEDON NEWS

Wimbledon are on a winning run at the moment and have scored eight goals in their last three league games which were all victories.

Their weekend victory came in the 93rd minute, Terrell Thomas getting the only goal in a dramatic 1-0 win over Portsmouth at Kingsmeadow.

The Dons sit in 21st position on the league table and have played three more games than the Brewers.
