Preview: Dons look to build on Cup win in front of the cameras

Team news, quotes and stats as Wimbledon take on Peterborough

11 November 2017

By Rob Cornell

Neal Ardley’s men go in search of League One points this Sunday in front of the TV cameras, against a side they had a good record against last season.

The Dons produced one of their best displays of the previous campaign just over a year ago with an impressive 1-0 victory at Peterborough United. They remained unbeaten and kept another clean sheet when the two teams met again back in April.

However, The Posh visit The Cherry Red Records Stadium tomorrow (kick-off 2.30pm) having put the only dent in leaders Shrewsbury’s record this season.

Peterborough won 1-0 at the ABAX Stadium two weeks ago to inflict the first defeat of the season on the League One table-toppers. After a promising start to the season Grant McCann’s side are well placed in ninth.

Comments -

Simon Bassey –

"They’re a very attacking team. They’ve picked up a couple of injuries – a bit like us. They’ve lost a couple of forwards and are a little bit light on firepower. Jack Marriott has come in from Luton this season and done really well for them up front and in Marcus Maddison they’ve got one of the stand out players in the league as technically he’s very good."

Deji Oshilaja –

"The mood in the camp has been good, it always is after a win.The boys have been at it in training, to be fair. Everyone is raring to go and is looking to put in a good performance for the fans on Sunday."

Grant McCann –

“AFC Wimbledon is always a tricky place to go. They have good players and are a real handful up front, but will be focussing on what we can do. We won our last league game against the previously unbeaten leaders and we had a good performance and a result in midweek against Cambridge.”
