Neal: I will not be afraid to put other players in

Manager ready to switch players around during busy month

30 January 2018

Neal Ardley said he will not be wary of making changes to his starting line-up with a busy spell of fixtures coming up during February.

Though Neal's decision to pick an unchanged starting 11 paid off with a 4-0 away win at Bradford, the manager has been impressed with the rest of his squad's effort and application in training.

"The team deserves to play," said Neal. "We've had Saturday to Saturday for a few weeks now, which is great, so we've been able to freshen them up and they can go again. They deserve their places, but we are going into a February with seven games and playing a lot on Saturdays and Tuesdays. That is when the other guys will start to come into the fold. I will not be afraid to put other people into the team because they all seem like they are in a really good place. I feel like I can play any of them at the moment."

Several AFC Wimbledon first-teamers are set to increase their match fitness levels by featuring for the development squad in a game against Portsmouth this afternoon (1.00 pm kick-off at Gosport Borough).
