Terry puts Dons through cup test

Wimbledon aim to progress

9 August 2022

Assistant Manager Terry Skiverton has a feeling our players will be spot on tonight - if required to take a penalty to decide our Carabao Cup tie against visitors Gillingham.

“We had a little practice,” said Terry with a smile, after lessons were hopefully learned from Monday’s training session. “I put a bit of pressure on them and said that anyone who misses has to give me five pounds. A couple of them melted, so I’m waiting for Alfie Bendle to bring me a fiver and we’ll wait and see if they pay up!”

Following our best run in the competition since returning to the league, going out in the third round at the Emirates against Arsenal last season, Terry is also well aware of possibly facing Premier League opposition later on – if we can overcome the Gills this evening.

“When I was with Yeovil we went to Goodison Park and played Everton in 2016,” said Terry, pictured below with Jack Currie. “It’s really nice when the big boys come in and you get a chance to play against them and pit your wits, but right now we’ve got Gillingham."

“It’ll be a tough game," said Terry. "Gillingham had a great result on Saturday, beating Rochdale 1-0 with Scott Cashket scoring early on. The good thing is that we’ve played them recently on the opening day of the league season, so we know all about them, but they’ll know all about us. Hopefully we get a really good turn out to get behind the players and make sure we get through.

“it’s just the next game and like anything – we want to win it, otherwise it’s not worth turning up. If you’ve got your mind elsewhere, such as on the league and stuff like that, but we can’t think like that, and we’ve got to concentrate on this. We’re going to pick a team that we think can win and get through in the competition.”

Although still missing Alex Woodyard due to his calf, Johnnie Jackson (pictured above) will have plenty to choose from for the match, and those numbers will be boosted hopefully in the not-too-distant future by another midfielder Elliott Bolton. The Academy graduate, who performed well on loan at Corinthian-Casuals last season, is on the road to recovery from his MCL (knee) injury he suffered towards the end of the campaign.

“We have no new injuries from the weekend,” said Terry. “We’re looking forward to the game and we’ll be able to pick a full-strength team. We’ve got a full squad and we’ll make sure we’ll be as competitive as we can be, as we want to win.

“Elliott was out on the grass with physio Tim Maynard. It’s always an exciting time for a player when you’ve been out for a long time. I’ve not had chance to see him play yet, but from all the accounts and the footage that we have seen of him – he’s another bright prospect. It was good to see him out there.”

Matchday Guide: Buy on the night for Carabao Cup tie

How to get your ticket for tonight's match

9 August 2022

We’ll be aiming to extend our unbeaten start to the season tonight by making progress in the Carabao Cup – and tickets are available to cheer on the Dons.

If you haven’t booked in advance, you can buy a ticket on the night from our club reception, ahead of the game which kicks off at 7.45 pm.

Johnnie Jackson will be aiming to spark another memorable cup run for the Dons after our third round meeting with Arsenal last season, but first we must negotiate a way past a Gillingham side that got back to winning ways on Saturday.

Our turnstiles at the Cherry Red Records Stadium open at 6.15 pm, and our fantastic food park and catering facilities in the Cappagh Stand will keep your hunger at bay after work!

Below is a summary of match arrangements and what’s going on at tonight’s game.


Tickets are priced at £17 for adults and £14 concessions (£2 more expensive on matchdays). Prices are unchanged at £5 for those 17 years and under. You can buy in person before the game from our club reception. Alternatively, buy from our online ticket shop.

We wish to remind ST holders that your Season Ticket cards will not be valid to use at the turnstiles tonight.

A pictorial history of the Dons

Wimbledon in Sporting History (WiSH) will tonight be hosting an unveiling ceremony to showcase a unique cartoon installation.

Documenting every chapter of our history from 1889 up to present day, it’s set to be officially unveiled at 7.00 pm opposite the Phoenix pub.

We will be joined by the artist that created the cartoon, along with organisers Matt Couper and John Lynch from WiSH.

Food, Drinks and Pub

Our food park behind the South London Movers Stand is accessible to all of our home supporters, offering plenty of reasons to get here early to sample some culinary delights.

Food outlets for tonight are as follows:

  • Dough Shack
  • Ding Ding

With high temperatures predicted for tonight’s game, you can stay cool by making use of our ice cream van!

Of course, you can also make use of our catering facilities in the Cappagh (West) Stand and the Phoenix Pub will be open, as usual, offering a wide selection of quality beers. Please note that the full range of spirits will be available from after the final whistle until closing time at 11.00 pm. Pre-mixed cans will be available prior to the final whistle.
