Trio in contention for trip to Barrow

Squad strengthened for away game

19 October 2023

Ryan Johnson, Harry Pell, and Connor Evans could all come into contention for Saturday’s League Two trip to Barrow.

Manager Johnnie Jackson was given a triple boost at training yesterday in New Malden, as all three took an active part in the session.

“We’ll make a late call,” said Johnnie. “They missed last week and a bulk of training and even more so with regards to Connor, but I’ll look at them on Friday and see how they come through that and make decisions then.

“I was disappointed for Ryan Johnson to miss out against Bradford. It was just an issue with his neck that meant that he couldn’t play that game, but he’s recovered well, trained and come through that fine. Ryan comes back into our thoughts for the weekend and it’s good to have him.

“Harry Pell just had a little niggle and couldn’t make it at the back end of last week, but again – nothing too serious. We’ve had him back with the group and there’s been some really good work from both.

“Connor is a talented boy, we did a lot of work on getting him on the ball, along with all of our attacking players, so that we give them that license to create and score. That's what he can bring to the team. We've missed that since he’s been injured, because he did so well in the win at Walsall when he scored.

“We were gutted that he came out of that with the injury and he has missed a little period of time now, but he’s stepped up his rehab and it was great to have him back out there amongst it and working with the main group.”

Goalkeeper Nik Tzanev and striker Ali Al-Hamadi are also due to return to the group after gaining further international experience for their countries.

“I’m really pleased for them,” said Johnnie. “Nik played the first game for New Zealand out in Spain against DR Congo and did well. We saw his clips. He didn’t figure against Australia over at Brentford’s ground, which we were planning to see, but he did get 90 minutes out in Spain under his belt.

“Ali played and scored against Jordan, which was great for him. I’ve touched base and congratulated him on his goal and it’ll be good to get him back in later on in the week.

“There’re a few players walking that disciplinary tightrope now, in terms of yellow cards, and we’ve still got a number of games to get through until that changes.

“The lads have to play their normal game. They have to tackle; they have to block and they have to run - sometimes with that comes yellow cards. What we don’t want is any stupid ones, like dissent or kicking the ball away – things like that. We don’t want to lose anyone, but you can limit the reasons why you get them.”

Dons and Bluebirds finish level

Goalless at the SO Legal Stadium

21 October 2023

AFC Wimbledon came away with a point that could have been a bit more on another day as we drew 0-0 with Barrow.

A game that was largely a midfield battle brought about little in the way of chances for the best part of 90 minutes until stoppage time saw Jake Reeves scamper through in the dying seconds, only for his low effort to be smothered by the Barrow goalkeeper.

It was an agonising end to a game that won’t live too long in the memory as the side with an unbeaten home record came up against our unbeaten away run.

Both walked away with a clean sheet for their troubles, however there were certainly chances to walk away with three points at both ends.

Johnnie Jackson made two changes to the team that lost 1-0 to Bradford City as Ali Al-Hamadi and Ryan Johnson came in for Josh Davison and Alex Pearce. Meanwhile there was a welcome inclusion of Huseyin Biler on the bench, as he featured in a matchday squad for the first time in the 2023/24 season.

The hosts started quickly inside the first 10 minutes, with Isaac Ogundere having to be on guard to block a powerful effort from Emile Aquah. This was followed up in strong fashion by a sliding challenge from Jack Currie as we continued to soak up early pressure.

James Tilley was at his lively best on the right-hand side and came close to creating our first chance of the game, jinking inside the opposing full-back before curling in a cross that was just in front of Al-Hamadi.

We then worked Paul Farman well soon after as Reeves so a curling free-kick well matched by the Barrow number one. James Chester then headed over the bar when it appeared easier to score as the two teams trooped in level at the break.

The Bluebirds had a chance from a free-kick of their own as Dean Campbell drew a routine save out of Alex Bass. We then had our best chance of the afternoon as an expert ball from Ogundere sent Al-Hamadi away and in behind, however our number 10 could only force Farman into a good save at the near post.

Johnson showed great positioning to block a low shot behind. Bass was also at his very best not long after as he made a fingertip save amidst chaos in the penalty area from a Barrow corner. Dom Telford then headed over from close range as the game became more and more stretched.

Substitute Aron Sasu created a good opportunity for himself as he jinked in from the left before firing a low effort at the feet of Farman. We then almost took all three points with the last touch of the game as Reeves squandered a one on one opportunity after being played through by Al-Hamadi. It wasn’t to be in the end as both teams settled for a point and a clean sheet respectively.

AFC Wimbledon: Alex Bass, Jake Reeves, Ryan Johnson, James Tilley (Aron Sasu), Ali Al-Hamadi, Josh Neufville (James Ball), Armani Little, Omar Bugiel (Harry Pell), Jack Currie, Joe Lewis, Isaac Ogundere
