AFC Wimbledon v Wycombe Wanderers

AFC Wimbledon welcome high-flying Wycombe Wanderers to Kingsmeadow for a League One showdown.  Kick-off is at 3pm and tickets are on general sale.

A big season is underway for AFC Wimbledon who have their eye on promotion from League One as a move back to their spiritual home moves closer to becoming a reality not a dream.

The Dons story is a famous one as they crowdfund to help finance a return to a new stadium on Plough Lane.  From the glory of winning the FA Cup in 1988, all seemed lost in 2002 when the club was moved to Milton Keynes.  But their supporters reformed as a fan-owned club in the ninth tier of English football and in 13 seasons have been promoted six times.  Now they aim to go back to where they belong – Plough Lane – in readiness for season 2020/2021.  And while plans continue off the pitch the team will be desperate to retain their League One status having – since being reformed – yet to taste relegation.

Wycombe Wanderers have enjoyed an impressive start to the League One season, unbeaten at the time of writing with a record of three wins and two draws from five matches, handily placed in 3rd place in the table alongside a cluster of sides all on 11 points including leaders Ipswich Town.

A win today for Wanderers could see them go top of the league by 5pm.  Likewise a win for the hosts will ensure they don’t slip into the relegation zone at this early stage of the season.

Will the Wanderers leave Surrey with the points?  Or can Wimbledon earn a first league victory of the season?  All roads lead to Kingsmeadow to find out.

Kick-off is 3pm.
