Match Previews

Johnnie could give new Dons signings their debuts

Team news for the trip to Bradford City

2 February 2024

Our three new additions this week are all in the squad for tomorrow’s League Two game at Bradford, but we will be without a couple of key personnel.

New striker Josh Kelly and on loan defenders Kofi Balmer and John-Joe O’Toole could figure in West Yorkshire. However, centre-back Joe Lewis and captain Jake Reeves are both set to miss the match at the University of Bradford Stadium. 

You can listen to everything Johnnie had to say below, and a summary of the interview is also in written form.

“John-Joe's signing was completed really late last night, so he hasn’t trained with the group yet,” said Johnnie Jackson, after today’s final training session before departing for Bradford. “He’ll meet us at the hotel, and we’ll have a catch-up and see where he’s at with his training and fitness.

“Kofi and Josh both trained with the group so they'll come into our thoughts, about whether they start, or whether we use them from the bench, but they’re definitely part of our plans.”


Skipper Jake Reeves missed our Bristol Street Motors Trophy Quarter-Final at Peterborough in midweek, while defender Joe Lewis had to come off injured.

“They’re both struggling to make this one,” said Johnnie. “Joe hurt his knee in the game, so he’ll have a scan on that, and we’ll see what that looks like. Jake felt his hamstring towards the end of the Mansfield game last Saturday.

“He didn’t recover in time for Tuesday and probably won’t recover in time for Saturday, so we’ll also have to see how long we’ll be without our skipper.”

Ryan Johnson and Josh Neufville both remain sidelined and although we’ll be missing a couple of other defenders through suspension, three players do return to the squad.

“Alex Pearce and Omar Bugiel both trained and they come back into our thoughts,” added Johnnie. “Omar has recovered from a dead leg. Tuesday came too soon for him, but he’s trained at the back end of the week. Pearcey has been training for about a week now. 

“Huseyin Biler is on the second of his two-game ban in the league and Paul Kalambayi has been given an extra game this morning after his hearing. John-Kymani Gordon couldn’t play in midweek because he was cup-tied, but he comes back with the group now as well.

“We’re missing a few, there’s no getting away from that. We’d gone so far with having a really good injury record and unfortunately in the last couple of games we’ve lost key players, but we’ve also bolstered the squad as well. That provides opportunities for other people.

“Bringing John-Joe in late last night is another good bit of business because he can play in a couple of different positions. He’s experienced, and he knows all about the league. He’s certainly been there and done it, and he’s definitely going to help us in this period.”

Match Reports

Dons draw against Bantams

Goalless at University of Bradford Stadium

3 February 2024

The Dons were made to settle for a point at Bradford City in what was a largely uneventful 0-0.

Returning to Sky Bet League Two action, Wimbledon featured a series of new faces amongst our squad, but there was little in the way of goalmouth action to raise hopes of turning one point into three.

The defensive performance will no doubt be pleasing for our management team as we kept a clean sheet for the first time since 9 January.

We’ll now be aiming to go one better next time out as we return to the Cherry Red Records Stadium to take on Barrow.

Johnnie Jackson made six changes to the side that started against Peterborough United in midweek as January arrivals Josh Kelly and Kofi Balmer came in for their debuts. Alex Bass, Lee Brown, Omar Bugiel, Isaac Ogundere and John-Kymani Gordon were also restored to the team.

Meanwhile, there was also a place on the bench for our other deadline day signing John-Joe O’Toole and for Alex Pearce, who made his return from injury.

The Dons had to hold firm in the opening 10 minutes as the home side – buoyed by a sizeable support – started on the front foot, applying pressure through set pieces.

Our side were also beginning to cause problems for the hosts, with Kelly and James Tilley showing some nice touches in the final third. It appeared that Wimbledon had a fair shout for a penalty, with Bugiel clearly being held, only for our widespread appeals to be waved away swiftly by referee Ross Joyce.

This proved to be the main moment of action in an otherwise quiet first-half, as both teams trooped in at the break with plenty to play for.

Bradford fashioned an early chance to open the second 45 minutes with a goal, as Alex Gilliead fired just wide from distance.

The Dons had the advantage of pace in behind, with Kelly and Gordon both staying on the shoulder of Bradford’s defenders. Ronan Curtis was introduced just past the hour mark as we looked to bring a different dynamic to our attack.

The game was becoming more and more stretched as we headed towards the final 10 minutes, which saw another roll of the dice as Josh Davison and Ryan McLean were brought on.

We continued to hold firm when the Bantams did threaten with Lee Brown putting in a vital block to repel a goal bound effort.

In the end, there was nothing to separate the two sides as we came away with a point and a clean sheet for our efforts.

AFC Wimbledon: Alex Bass, Lee Brown, Kofi Balmer, James Tilley (Ronan Curtis), Josh Kelly (Josh Davison), Armani Little, James Ball, Omar Bugiel, Jack Currie, Isaac Ogundere, John-Kymani Gordon (Ryan McLean)
