"The fans have been magnificent"

Terry Skiverton ahead of this evening's game at Colchester

15 August 2023

Terry Skiverton wants to serve up another memorable night under the lights for our fans, as we go in search of a first league win of the season at Colchester.

Our Assistant Manager was delighted that we were able to reward supporters with a 2-1 victory over Coventry in the Carabao Cup, in our previous midweek game last Wednesday. An evening visit to tonight’s opponents also produced the same turnaround score line in this fixture last Christmas.

“One thing I do recognise is that there has been a change in mood amongst our supporters,” said Terry. “We felt their frustration last season, but with the two league games that we’ve had so far the fans have been magnificent.”

“They’ve got right behind the players and the manager and I think we all feel that. That’s really going to drive us on. In particular, Plough Lane was special last Wednesday night and a lot of people have said it was the first time that they’ve had that really big feeling of an upset since our return.

“We want to experience that again with the supporters - going crazy behind the goal and up in the stand. We’re mindful of that and we need to make sure that we keep giving them the moments and the energy to do so.”

Our last visit to the JobServe Community Stadium yielded three points in the run up to this year, as Josh Davison and a late winner from Ethan Chislett cancelled out a John Akinde penalty in the second half.


“It was a fantastic performance,” said Terry. “Huseyin Biler was excellent on that night, we defended really well. They threw everything at us and it took quite a lot of energy out of us, I remember that afterwards. It was a great night and a great feeling.

“I think Colchester are one of the twenty clubs the gaffer played for before,” added Terry with a smile. “He always mentions he scored some really good goals for them and had a good time. We want to go back there and try and put on another good performance and come away with the three points.

“They’re a tough team and they played really well against Bradford at the weekend. They’ve got plenty of energy and pace within their team and some really good players for this level.”


There was no rest day for the Dons after the draw with Wrexham, as the squad trained on Sunday, as Terry explained:

“We had a really good day and then on Monday we did some lighter work, just to make sure we’ve got that energy about us. We also worked on our organisation, set plays, that we’re diligent in what we do and that we’re getting the details and the clarity across to the players so that we know what we’re doing in and out of possession.

“It’s frustrating for Huseyin now and Jack Currie is the same. They want to be out there training, but they can’t due to injuries. Paul Kalambayi was immense for us last season, he’s also missing, but the good thing is that we’ve got them to welcome back and hopefully soon. They’ll make the squad and the team even stronger.”

Match Reports

Tilley brings double delight for the Dons

Our report from the JobServe Community Stadium

15 August 2023

AFC Wimbledon picked up a first league victory of the season with a deserved 2-0 win at Colchester.

Once again James Tilley was chief tormentor of the opposition as he bagged a brilliantly taken double to take his tally to three goals in his last two games.

In truth we could’ve had more on the night, with Josh Neufville seeing a close range effort come off the underside of the bar.

It was a complete performance that continues to build up our confidence ahead of this weekend’s London derby against Sutton United.  

Johnnie Jackson made one change to the side which drew 1-1 against Wrexham on Saturday, with Lee Brown coming into the back four in place of Alex Pearce.

Wimbledon were quick to get the ball wide in the opening stages, with Isaac Ogundere being allowed the time and space to whip in a great ball that was just too far in front of our onrushing forwards.

We then worked the keeper for the first time as Omar Bugiel saw his effort saved by Owen Goodman before James Tilley’s follow up was blocked away for a corner. Up the other end John Akinde was denied inside the area by Alex Bass.

Tilley was causing our hosts all kinds of problems as he twice drove into the area and saw shots deflected clear. Armani Little was next to have a go as he fired a shot from distance wide following a neat lay off by Bugiel.

Noah Chilvers fired a shot straight at Bass from distance as the U’s struggled to break through the lines. Connor Hall also headed wide as we largely kept the hosts at arm’s length during the first-half.

The Dons were finally rewarded for the earlier dominance in the second-half after a brilliant team move. Little drove the ball out to Neufville on the left wing, before our attacker beat his man and fired across goal for Tilley to tap home at the far post.

As we went in search of a second goal there was a double change up top for the final quarter as Josh Davison and Harry Pell entered the fray. Davison was quickly into the action as he worked some room on the left before seeing his shot gathered up by Goodman.

Wimbledon’s wing combination was at it again as the same players combined once more to double our lead inside the final 10 minutes. Neufville picked up the ball centre field before spreading it to Tilley, who fired emphatically into the far corner.

We very nearly had a third as the board for additional time was raised, with Neufville seeing his effort hit the underside of the bar and spin out.

It was plain sailing in the end as the Dons toasted a well deserved victory on our manager’s birthday!

AFC Wimbledon: Alex Bass, Lee Brown, Jake Reeves, Ryan Johnson, James Tilley, Ali Al-Hamadi (Josh Davison), Josh Neufville, Armani Little, Omar Bugiel (Harry Pell), Joe Lewis, Isaac Ogundere
