AFC Wimbledon vs Fleetwood Town
England – League One
Date: Friday, 30 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Cherry Red Records Fans’ Stadium (Kingston upon Thames).
Fleetwood Town saw off fellow strugglers Rochdale and Northampton Town in the last couple of rounds to go five points off the drop zone ahead of Friday’s trip to Surrey where they are set to take on another bottom-half opponent AFC Wimbledon.
The head coach John Ahe5idan looks to have introduced the fighting spirit into his players who have been very tough to break down lately. As the matter of fact, the Cod Army will come into this off the back of three straight clean sheet sin League One affairs and the Dons could well find themselves in troubles trying to produce in the final third here.
The hosts have been playing hot and cold ever since the start of the season and they will still have to work hard to save the third tier status come May. Neal Ardley’s men could not do much to prevent the defeat to Shrewsbury Town on Saturday (1-0). The loss has kept them only two points away from the danger area and a potential failure here would further complicate things for the Dons in the relegation scrap.
All eyes will be on Lyle Taylor who has been by far the most important of Wimbledon’s players netting 12 goals so far in the season.
AFC Wimbledon vs Fleetwood Town: Head-to-head
Fleetwood Town have only picked up a single victory in 11 H2H encounters with the Dons.
AFC Wimbledon have been brutal towards the Cod Army in matches played at Cherry Red Records Fans’ Stadium (4 wins and 1 draw in five games).
Three straight H2H games, however, ended without a winner, before Fleetwood Town snatched their first ever win over ASFC Wimbledon in November last year.
AFC Wimbledon vs Fleetwood Town: Prediction
Fleetwood Town will likely park the bus and wait for their chances from the counter attacks, which is why we can expect a low-scoring contest on Friday.
Braver tipsters can shoot for the draw at the odds of 3.30.
