MATCH PREVIEW: AFC WIMBLEDON

9 October 2020

Swindon are back in League one action to host AFC Wimbledon in what will be the first of two consecutive League games at the County Ground.

After Town’s frustrating 3-1 defeat away to Peterborough United last week, the Reds will be looking to bounce back with a third straight home victory in the League.

Despite the setback against the Posh, Town are still knocking on the door of the Play-Off places in seventh position, only one point behind sixth place Gillingham.

The boys have been very impressive in the League at the County Ground, having won their opening two league matches at home, sweeping Rochdale and Burton Albion aside 3-1 and 4-2 respectively.

Meanwhile Wimbledon are currently in 12th position, opening the campaign with one victory, two draws and one defeat.

Their last league fixture was a 2-1 home defeat against Accrington Stanley, while their most recent match also ended with The Wombles on the losing side, as Leyton Orient put two goals past them without reply in the EFL Cup.

While both clubs come into this fixture on the back of losses in League One and the EFL Cup, past fixtures indicate that the Reds will not be on the losing side.

Since the first meeting in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in 2011, Swindon have beaten AFC Wimbledon twice and drawn three times without losing a single match.

However, the last two meetings between the clubs in the 2016-17 League One season, both ended in 0-0 draws.

But, with both Swindon and Wimbledon as the joint second highest goal-scorers in the division with eight goals each, it is reasonable to say fans can expect goals on Saturday.
