AFC Wimbledon will be hoping to bounce back here following the 1-0 League One defeat in their last game at the hands of Plymouth Argyle.
Sam Woods (11') was the scorer for Plymouth Argyle.
AFC Wimbledon have struggled with their forward play in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 4 versus opponents over their last 6 fixtures. In those games, The Dons have also seen the number of goals scored against them total 5.
Coming into this clash, AFC Wimbledon are undefeated in their last 3 league matches at home.
Since being beaten in their last game against Peterborough United in League One competition, Fleetwood Town and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
Jonson Clarke-Harris (89') scored for Peterborough United.
For 6 of the previous 6 clashes featuring Fleetwood Town, a notably low volume of goals have gone in between them and opposing teams. The overall average number of goals per game during that spell comes out as a meagre 1.33, with the number of goals averaged by The Fishermen equalling 0.83. We shall soon see if that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Their prior results show that Fleetwood Town:
- remain unbeaten by AFC Wimbledon when having played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. A very good record, indeed.
- are undefeated in their previous 3 away league matches.

AFC Wimbledon manager Mark Robinson has zero fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game with a fully healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Fleetwood Town
With a fully injury-free group available for selection, Fleetwood Town manager Simon Grayson does not have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game.
In our opinion, AFC Wimbledon may well find it hard to register a score against this Fleetwood Town side who we reckon will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a good battle with a 0-1 advantage for Fleetwood Town at the end of the 90.
Should be an interesting one.
