AFC Wimbledon entered the League 1 for the first time in their history in 2016.But they never looked close enough to qualify to the Championship level.
There is a 5 point difference between the hosts and the Dons. Neal Ardley’s team are just one point above relegation zone. With 3 wins and 8 losses they lie 20th in the table.
Last season they finished 18th in the league. Recent performances from this season points to a similar finish for them that is if they avoid relegation.
