The Dons face Stevenage this weekend in a game both sides are targeting for “a positive reaction” after defeats in their previous games.

Despite the encouraging start to the season with two wins and a draw against fancied opposition, Wimbledon’s second half capitulation against struggling Hartlepool last weekend means that it’s actually only 1 point from 2 at home so far this term and, with home form an issue in previous seasons, the Wombles will be looking to improve matters starting this weekend. Stevenage haven’t won since opening day and lie down in 18th, which would suggest the Dons could do well but as last weekend reminded us this is the type of situation we continually underperform in. Stevenage haven’t won away since 1st March while Wimbledon haven’t won at home since the ultimately meaningless 4-3 win against Cheltenham, also back in March. Something has to give.

The Dons have positive injury news in that both Andy Frampton and Jack Smith are back in training after recovering from a broken ankle and knee injury respectively although neither is quite ready for first team action yet. Neal Ardley is therefore likely to name an unchanged side for Saturday’s game with Callum Kennedy continuing at left-back with Ben Harrison as cover and on-loan Adam Barrett at centre-back.

Meanwhile Ardley is still looking for one more addition to the squad and has targeted either a winger or additional target-man to challenge Adebayo Akinfenwa and provide additional attacking options although with the transfer deadline looming and playing budget pressures it’s looking likely to be a loan deal next week.
