Checkatrade Trophy: Dons seek points to go through

First of two knockout games for Wimbledon this week is on Tuesday night

5 November 2018

AFC Wimbledon will be aiming for a victory on Tuesday night that will guarantee progress into the last-32 of the Checkatrade Trophy.

Wimbledon on Tuesday night face League Two high-flyers Stevenage, who are currently second in Group G of the competition.

The match is likely to offer a chance for squad players making their way back from injuries to get game-time with Anthony Wordsworth and Tyler Garrett among those that could be included. Andy Barcham is doubtful with the calf injury that kept him out of Saturday's game against Shrewsbury.

Speaking about the approach to tomorrow night's game, Neal Ardley said: "We've got Tuesday and Friday matches coming up, so it makes it harder with the recovery periods. We are just going to have to use everyone we've got to try and get through the two games. We can't pick and choose too much, we have to go with what we've got. We need to win games of football and that's proving to be tough at the moment."

The picture above shows Toby Sibbick and Joe McDonnell celebrating after the Dons earned an extra Checktrade Trophy point by winning a penalty shoot-out at Charlton in September.

Dons favourite Jason Goodliffe will return to the Cherry Red Records Stadium tomorrow, as part of Stevenage manager Dino Maamria's coaching team.

Tickets for the game on Tuesday are priced at £10 for all adults and concessions, and £5 for Under-18s. The Paul Strank Stand will be open for this match. Please note that tickets can be purchased on the day, cash only, from the ticket booth in the main stand foyer.

The Your Golf Travel Bar and Club Shop will be open from 5.00 pm prior to the game tomorrow. Both home and away fans will be welcome in the bar.
