AFC Wimbledon will on Saturday go in search of a third successive League One victory – and your support can help Wally’s boys to earn three more precious points.
The Dons host promotion candidates Charlton Athletic with our former striker Lyle Taylor returning to the Cherry Red Records Stadium for the first time since his departure last summer. After closing the gap on the teams above us with that dramatic win at Rochdale in midweek, another maximum points return would really establish momentum in the battle to stay up. Joe Pigott (pictured) will be aiming to continue his hot streak after a superb hat-trick when he lines up against his old club.
Below is a summary of ticket details and other match arrangements ahead of the big game.
You must buy in advance for this all-ticket match. We still have availability for the Chemflow End and the RyGas terrace.
