Johnnie buoyed by strong following for our trip to North Wales

Team news and the latest on the January transfer window

12 January 2024

We’ll be taking a sizable contingent to Wrexham tomorrow afternoon and that’s greatly appreciated by Johnnie Jackson, as we prepare to face the third-placed side.

Since the one-all draw between the two sides at the Cherry Red Records Stadium on the opening day of the season, we’ve only lost twice on our travels in League Two. However, Saturday’s hosts have only suffered one defeat all season at STōK Cae Ras.


“We’ve sold out the away end I believe,” said Johnnie on the touchline at our New Malden training base for today’s final session.

We'll be boosted by over 1,100 supporters cheering the team on. 

“That’s incredible that so many will be travelling all the way up to North Wales," added Johnnie. "It’s fantastic support and I’m delighted that they’ll be coming in their numbers. We want to put on a performance for those going up there and if we do, normally what comes with that is a positive result.

“Let’s concentrate on that - giving everything for the shirt, putting in a performance and then we’ll come away with a result.”

You can listen to everything Johnnie had to say and read a summary of key points below.

It’s a busy time off the pitch, what’s the very latest on the transfer front?

We’re working hard, looking at the market and having conversations. We have to be careful about what we divulge, but we are working really hard on targets that we think we can perhaps bring in.

We’re not going to do anything for the sake of it. It would have to be someone who is going to add something to this group. My main focus has always been to keep this group together and there’s that to look at too. 

The January window is tricky. I think if you asked most managers, they don’t look forward to it. It depends on who you are and where you’re shopping and things like that! If we had millions of pounds to go and buy who you want, then a manager would be really excited by that. We know where we are and what we need to do.


I’m excited about what we’ve got here in the building. We’ve got two lads who are away on international duty - in Omar Bugiel and Ali Al-Hamadi - and that makes us feel a little bit short in numbers at the moment, but they’ll come back to us and we’ll be stronger when they do.

Have you got injury updates on Alex Pearce and Josh Neufville?

Both are unlikely to be with us, unfortunately. Pearcey went off with a thigh injury against Ipswich in the FA Cup last weekend. It doesn’t look too serious, but he’ll miss Saturday and probably one or two more games and then hopefully we’ll have him back with us.

We’re a bit more uncertain about Josh. He’s got a bit of an issue with his back. It was something he was playing through with at one stage, but it’s got too uncomfortable and too difficult for him.


We have to be careful with back injuries. If he misses a few games now, that will be for the benefit that we have him for the rest of the season. It’s a difficult one to manage and has to be monitored quite regularly.

Lee Brown is not out here today, what’s the situation with him?

He had an issue with his back, a back spasm, after the game against Oxford United. That’s made it difficult for him to train over the last couple of days.

He’ll be unavailable for the game against Wrexham.

Match Reports

Dons defeated at Wrexham

A loss at the STōK Cae Ras

13 January 2024

The Dons lost 2-0 at Wrexham on Saturday afternoon as clinical finishing proved to be the difference between the two sides.

Wimbledon had the better of the play in the first-half, however we couldn’t quite replicate the same performance levels in the second as Steven Fletcher and Paul Mullin scored in the space of nine minutes to ultimately put the game to bed.

It could have been a completely different story had Josh Davison put away a presentable opportunity at 0-0, but alas our number nine couldn’t quite hit the target.

With a week between today’s game and our next against Crawley Town at home, there is time for the Dons to take stock and regroup as we bid to recapture the form which pushed us into the play-off places.  

Johnnie Jackson made four changes to the side which beat Oxford United 2-0 on Tuesday, with Joe Lewis making his first appearance for the Dons since turning his loan permanent, whilst Huseyin Biler, Jack Currie and Armani Little also came in.

This saw Paul Kalambayi and Isaac Ogundere drop to the substitutes’ bench, whilst Lee Brown (injury) and Harry Pell (suspended) missed out. There were also spots in the squad for the likes of Josh Hallard – his first time featuring in one this season – Ryan McLean, Ethan Sutcliffe and Morgan Williams. 

It was a largely positive opening quarter for Wimbledon as we enjoyed the majority of ball possession. James Tilley and Biler were combining well down the right, with crosses causing the Wrexham backline visible difficulties.

James Ball and Aron Sasu also showed good interplay to fashion a chance for the latter, but our young forward could only fire off target. Davison then headed over a Currie delivery as our bright spell continued. Sasu was getting plenty of joy out on the left and he was first to test Arthur Okonkwo in the opposing goal with a low drive.

Ball was making his first start in Sky Bet League Two since September and was certainly making an impact in behind Davison, flicking the ball on to create attacks and tracking back at every opportunity to win back possession.

Wrexham finally fashioned their first attempt of the game a few minutes before the half-time whistle, but Elliott Lee’s header was tame and comfortably into the hands of Alex Bass. Ball also had a headed effort shortly after as he directed the ball over the crossbar following good work by Biler.

After the break it was more of the same from the Dons, and the chance of the game so far followed a few minutes into the half. Davison managed to scamper in behind, but he could only arrow his shot agonizingly off target from the angle.

Wrexham then had their first bright spell of the game, with Bass making a strong save, before Steven Flecther’s follow up hit the top of the bar. The Dons wouldn’t be let off so lightly the next time, as Fletcher got on the end an in-swinging corner to net the opener.

The hosts then doubled their lead in the 69th minute as Paul Mullin seized on a moment of hesitation to fire home from close range.

In response, we threw McLean into the mix for the closing stages as he sought to make an impact and turn the tide of the match.

Davison and Sasu both had chances to reduce the deficit to one, but neither of our strikers could quite get the touch required to two dangerous cutbacks, meaning Wrexham eventually saw out the game with limited fuss.

AFC Wimbledon: Alex Bass, Huseyin Biler, Jake Reeves, Ryan Johnson, James Tilley, Josh Davison, Armani Little, James Ball (Ryan McLean), Jack Currie, Aron Sasu, Joe Lewis
