Alex suspended for League One match at Plymouth

Midfielder ruled out for Good Friday away match

1 April 2021

AFC Wimbledon will have to do without Alex Woodyard for the trip to Plymouth Argyle on Friday.

The midfielder picked up his 10th booking of the season in the victory versus Northampton, which means that he will serve a two-match suspension.

Despite having to deal without his experience, our Head Coach Mark Robinson believes the Dons can cope, as shown recently by Jaakko Oksanen’s impressive recent performances after he came back into the team.

“Woody got a booking in the Northampton game, so we will have to do without him, which is a shame,” said Robbo. “We have to deal with that, but we will do. In some ways it’s probably the best time with us having two games close together.

“I have always known the ability that Jaakko has got, I just felt that we needed a bit of experience in previous games. Now that the players have got the focus I believe any of them can come in at any time and do an excellent job for us.

“We wanted to have a three-day lead in before the Plymouth game, so we gave them Sunday and Monday off, but some came in on that day as well. We didn’t want to have Wednesday off because we wanted that three-day lead up, and that’s what we have done. They are looking really bright.”

Look out later for a full video interview with Robbo ahead of the Good Friday match at Plymouth.
