Josh back in contention for Saturday

Team news ahead of our final home game

28 April 2023

Josh Davison is ready to play a part against Tranmere this weekend, after missing the last six weeks due to injury.

The striker, into double figures with ten goals to his name this season, has been involved in preparations for our final home game and could figure - as we aim to bounce back from a heavy defeat to Swindon.

“We’re hopeful,” said Johnnie. “Josh has started to reintegrate into training this week, so we’re hopeful that he can play some sort of part in the game.

“Alex Pearce is a bit further behind. We’re probably looking to step his training up next week and hopefully he can be involved in the last game against Grimsby. Obviously, we’re running out of time now with the games that we’ve got left.

“That’s two crucial players for us that have ended up missing a huge chunk of football and made things more difficult. If we can get them back out before the end of the season it’ll give everyone a lift, so we’re hopeful those guys can be involved.”

Johnnie is eager to make amends for last weekend’s loss and give our fans something to cheer about as we bring the curtain down on another campaign.

“We’ve doubled down on the hard work on the training pitch,” said Johnnie. “We’ve gone back over the Swindon game and there were some uncomfortable conversations off the back of it.

“The staff and the players have got a point to prove this weekend, because that hurt. I know it hurt the supporters. It’s important that we see a reaction and we try and put things right as best as we can. We can’t allow that to happen again.  

“We want to finish the season as strongly as we can. There are six points to play for and that’s what we need to aim for. Starting with Saturday, we want to really put in a positive performance.

“We want to try and end the season with some positivity and give the supporters something to go home with. Obviously, there’s lots of work for us to do in the summer and that’s already started. As soon as that final whistle goes at Grimsby it will increase.”


Although Tranmere aren’t involved in the battle to go up through the play-offs, they are comfortable in mid-table. However, we did win 2-0 at Prenton Park when we were on a good run of form in November.

“Every team has got something to play for,” said Johnnie. “It doesn’t matter where they are in the league, everyone has their own motivation.

“We went to their place and beat them and during that period when we had a full roster of players. We were looking really strong and a tough side to play against.

“We performed really well that day and got a great result. We want to back that up now, but they’ll be thinking they don’t want us to do the double over them. It gives the game a little bit of an edge, which is good, because we need that.”

Match Reports

Dons denied a win

A 1-1 draw at Plough Lane

29 April 2023

AFC Wimbledon were denied a win in our final home game of the season as Tranmere Rovers equalised following Ali Al-Hamadi’s opener.

Our striker had put the Dons deservedly ahead with a stylish finish before Sam Taylor crashed home a leveller against the run of play.

All in all, it was a match of very few openings in general as both teams begin to wind down after a long and gruelling campaign.

Johnnie Jackson made three changes to the side which lost to Swindon Town as Nathan Broome, Jack Currie and Josh Davison came in for Nik Tzanev, Aaron Pierre and Sam Pearson. Meanwhile, Quaine Bartley was restored to the substitutes’ bench in place of Harry Pell.

There was an early chance for the visitors as Harvey Saunders headed just wide. At the other end, Kasey McAteer was linking the play nicely for the Dons, with his interchanges creating some good openings.

In stark contrast to last weekend’s action-packed first-half, there was little to write home about in a quiet first 45 minutes this time around.

Tranmere started the stronger of the two sides in the second-half, but they found Broome in good form as he tipped away Josh Hawkes’ powerful effort from distance. The Dons then responded through Ethan Chislett’s volley that drifted wide.  

Will Nightingale showed great composure to stop a counter-attack as he slid in under pressure. Al-Hamadi and substitute Saikou Janneh both had efforts blocked at the other end as we looked to break the deadlock.

We didn’t have to wait long though for the opening goal as our number 12 bagged his 10th goal of the season. Chislett picked up the ball, before splitting the defence with an inch perfect pass that our striker delightfully dinked home.

Nevertheless, Rovers found an equaliser just over 10 minutes later as Sam Taylor curled home a fine effort that left Broome helpless after taking advantage of Biler going down injured.

McAteer almost put us back in front as his header dropped wide of the near post, but it wasn’t to be as the game finished all square ahead of our final match of the campaign away at Grimsby.

AFC Wimbledon: Nathan Broome, Lee Brown, Alex Woodyard, Will Nightingale, Josh Davison (Saikou Janneh), Diallang Jaiyesimi (Sam Pearson), Ethan Chislett, Ali Al-Hamadi, Kasey McAteer, Huseyin Biler (Chris Gunter), Jack Currie
