PREVIEW: Town V AFC Wimbledon

13 April 2017

Town will be on the hunt for a vital three points when they entertain AFC Wimbledon at The County Ground on Good Friday (3pm Kick-Off).


The Reds are currently on a three-match unbeaten run and their 1-1 draw at home to MK Dons last weekend kept alive their survival hopes.


AFC Wimbledon, meanwhile, have enjoyed a solid first season in the Sky Bet League One and they could still secure a top-half finish, despite suffering a 2-0 defeat to Bristol Rovers last time out.


Lawrence Vigouroux proved to be the hero for The Robins when these two sides last met in October 2016, with the stopper denying Lyle Taylor from the penalty spot to secure his side a share of the spoils in a 0-0 draw.


STAT ATTACK:


Town and AFC Wimbledon have only locked horns on 14 occasions in all competitions and The Dons are able to boast the better head-to-head record with five wins to their name, compared to The Reds’ four.

TOWN - The Reds will continue to monitor Dion Conroy who is nursing a slight hamstring concern, although he has trained all week without any problems.

A WORD FROM THE TOWN CAMP:


Luke Williams, Swindon Town Head Coach: “Neal Ardley knows his team very well and knows how to get the best out of them. We have to make sure that we bring our best to the table.


“There is a focus around the squad. They are at it every day in training and the players believe that we will be fine.


“We’ve put the maximum amount of pressure on ourselves. We have responded well in recent weeks - we’re trying and we’re fighting.”


Raphael Rossi-Branco, Swindon Town Defender: “We need to be clever on Friday and we’ve been working all week on what we can do to get an early goal.


“We’ve just got to worry about us. If we pick up seven points from the next three games, then we could be safe. It’s in our hands.


“We’ve watched clips of AFC Wimbledon and we know how they play. They are more direct so hopefully we can deal with that and win.”
