“We’ll give Omar as much time as possible”

Terry on aiming to guide Wimbledon back to Wembley

30 January 2024

We’ll have to overcome another top League One outfit if we’re to make the final four of the Bristol Street Motors Trophy, with an appearance at Wembley on the horizon.

“For us, it’s vitally important that we take this next game as if it were a final because it means so much,” said Assistant Manager Terry Skiverton after final preparations for tonight’s away tie at our New Malden training base on Monday. “We’ll put the strongest team out possible.

“We’re having to do it the hard way! We’ve already beaten two teams who are up there - in Portsmouth and Oxford United - and now we’ve got another test in Peterborough, who are third in League One.”

You can listen to an extensive preview with Terry below.

“They’re coming off the back off a draw at the weekend, but they’ve got fantastic firepower going forward, they can cause a lot of problems with their front line, and they move the ball about quite well. When you’re so close to Wembley, do they pick a stronger team or do they concentrate on the league?

“We’ve been doing are due diligence on what we think they might play or could play and making sure we alert our players to everything about them.

“We know what we’re up against and we know what their strengths are and hopefully we can exploit a couple of their weaknesses.”

Our defensive options are boosted by Huseyin Biler and Paul Kalambayi. Although both were sent off in the league a week ago and are currently serving suspensions – they are available for selection in this competition.

We’ll also make a couple of late calls on fit-again centre-back Alex Pearce and forward Omar Bugiel, who had to come off before the second half of Saturday’s dramatic League Two victory over Mansfield.

“Omar didn’t train on Monday,” said Terry. “We’re managing him, and he’s got another 24 hours with a slight dead leg. He felt he could have come out for the session, but we just need to make sure that we give him as much time as possible for the game.

“We’ll have a discussion regarding Alex Pearce. He’s trained fantastically over the last few days, but it maybe a little bit early for him yet. We don’t want him to break down again. We’ll have a conversation and see if we’re able to put him in.”

Fellow defender Ryan Johnson remains ruled out though, as Terry revealed more about his injury: “I think he’s going to be out for an extended period. We don’t know the full extent of it yet and he’s got to go and see a specialist.

“He looked quite fit to me when he was hopping down that sideline when we got that winning goal though on Saturday! We are going to miss him, but the timing of when he does come back will be a crucial part of the season for us though and we just need to make sure that he does that safely.”

Match Reports

Dons exit at quarter-final stage

Defeat at the Weston Homes Stadium

30 January 2024

A late flurry proved to be in vain for Wimbledon as Peterborough United ended our hopes of a Wembley appearance.

It was the Sky Bet League One side who came out on top in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy, with two goals in the first four minutes leaving the Dons with a mountain to climb.

Our hopes of a comeback were heightened when Ryan McLean got a goal back late on, but Ricky-Jade Jones would go on to clinch the match for the hosts, with Nik Tzanev caught upfield after he joined the attack for a last-minute corner.

For Wimbledon, the focus returns to the league this coming weekend as we seek to keep our play-off hopes alive.

Johnnie Jackson made several changes to the side which beat Mansfield Town 2-1 on Saturday as Tzanev, Huseyin Biler, Harry Pell, James Ball, Aron Sasu and Paul Kalambayi all came in. This meant that Alex Bass, Isaac Ogundere, Omar Bugiel, Jake Reeves, John-Kymani Gordon (cup-tied) and Lee Brown all dropped out.

Armani Little was handed the captain’s armband, whilst Morgan Williams was added to the list of substitutes after missing out on the weekend.

It was a lacklustre start to the game for the Dons as we conceded with just over a minute on the clock, with Malik Mothersille firing high into the net from close range.

Things would go from bad to worse as the Posh got their second of the evening just short of the fourth minute. This time Ephron Mason-Clark charged in behind, before scoring from a tight angle with the help of a deflection.

A shell-shocked Wimbledon looked to mount a quick response, as Little fired off target from distance. Brown was introduced not long after, replacing Joe Lewis in what appeared to be a precautionary change rather than anything more serious.

Little was starting to pull the strings and almost fashioned a chance for us to half the deficit, as a looping cross from the midfielder was headed off target by Pell.

There was plenty of work for the Dons to do in the second-half as we sought to keep our Wembley hopes alive. Little continued to make things tick, with Currie and Sasu providing good outlets down the left.

Ronan Curtis was introduced from the bench just past the hour mark, with the Ireland international hoping to have another meaningful impact after his late winner on Saturday.

Despite having more of the ball the Dons struggled to break down the Peterborough backline, who continuously blocked any shots that came their way.

Ryan McLean and Williams were both brought on for the final knockings of the game in what was a last roll of the dice. Tzanev pulled off an excellent save to keep the score to two late on as Wimbledon lived on the edge.  

It was McLean who would relight a fire in our bellies as he headed home from a corner to set up a grandstand finish with five minutes of stoppage time shown. The Posh would also have chances of their own, striking the woodwork barely a minute later. 

Tzanev was thrown up for a corner as the Dons looked to throw the kitchen sink at the hosts, but it would prove to be an unfortunate turn of events with Posh breaking upfield to score into an unguarded net through Ricky-Jade Jones. This brought our Bristol Street Motors Trophy campaign to an end.

AFC Wimbledon: Nik Tzanev, Huseyin Biler, James Tilley, Harry Pell, Josh Davison (Ryan McLean), Armani Little, James Ball (Morgan Williams), Jack Currie, Aron Sasu (Ronan Curtis), Paul Kalambayi, Joe Lewis (Lee Brown)
