Your help needed to avoid a fixture backlog
Neal Ardley has called on AFC Wimbledon’s supporters to once again do the club proud by helping to get Thursday’s Port Vale match on.
With Wimbledon well renowned for the help it receives from its volunteers, manager Neal Ardley is hoping supporters will step forward again to help clear snow from the pitch tomorrow – and avoid a potential fixture backlog.
Speaking to Dons Player, Neal Ardley said: “Myself, ‘Coxy’ and ‘Bass’ came down and did some shovelling before the Oxford game, but we kind of wished we hadn’t after that result (3-0 defeat). But it is really important to get this one on. If this game gets called off then we will end up with seven games in February and eight in March. That will mean we are playing Saturday, Tuesday for over a whole month. That is not going to help when you are trying to get away from the bottom of the table.
“If everyone does put so much effort into getting it on, then we have to make sure that we put on a better performance than we did last time. Hopefully, we can carry some momentum from our last three games into this match. It is live on Sky and we are playing against the side at the top of the table so hopefully that will bring the best out of us.”
