DPL vs AFC Wimbledon

Enthusiasm for football is overshadowed by the distressing pictures and news from Doncaster this week.

However, we still have a match to play against Wimbledon. These games have not usually involved many goals. Wimbledon have not had many wins this season until recently and their 13 points puts them in 20th place, but this reflects their early form rather than the 10 points they have picked up from their last 6. To put this further into context, they have also been mostly up against top-half teams too.

So, they are on the “up" and their confidence will be high.

It is a game which we might lose, potentially weakened by injuries as we are, but then again, so it seems are Wimbledon, so it is perhaps a more welcome fixture for both sides at this stage than an important league match.

Alongside West Ham who they beat in last year’s competition we may appear “easy meat" but it might be a rather vain hope to imagine that this could lead to over-confidence, but either way we will probably have to work hard for a win.

What it will show is how we match up to the challenge of a confident team with neither side fearing that they have got much to lose.

I’ll say 1-1 and Sadlier/Anderson to score the goal.

I've just seen DM's comments about Hasani (I'd wondered where he had gone) and I assume he is looking at hm as a Sheaf replacement when Sheaf goes back to Arsenal. Last season he certainly showed potential. Remember King Alick was 15 when he debuted in Division 2 - but I know the game was very different then. I hope this is a sign of DM looking to the future that does not over-rely on loan players.

Think we could get beat, (2.1) but, this is our best chance for an away win, as most of their usual players are not playing.
I'll go my usual 3.1 Sadlier/Taylor first goal.

The performance at Kingston-upon-Thames was not good enough to get the better of Wimbledon and low scoring was again a feature. I was impressed with Danny Amos when I saw one of his few appearances in August 2018 and it is heartening to see that he got MoM. If DM is as good as his word he will keep him on the teamsheet for - I was going to say next week, but of course it's postponed, due to the exigencies of those seemingly all-important international matches.

Nookie marches on relentlessly with a correct score forecast and for once I forsook my favourite Tom Anderson as the goalscorer which of course deprived me of a full house.

The draw for Round 2 may seem disappointing at first sight, but the net gate receipts are still spilt in this round and visiting Sunderland is a good deal better than most in the Championship - if we can come though the replay of course. Gillingham's only advantage is that exiles like me can get there fairly easily!

AFC Wimbledon 1 : Rovers 1 (Anderson)
