Match Preview: AFC Wimbledon (A)

Seasiders Aim To Round Off 2018 With Positive Result

28 December 2018

Blackpool's final game of 2018 takes place tomorrow, as The

Terry McPhillips' side will be aiming to shake off some disappointing results of late and revert back to winning ways in the division. 

The hosts, now managed by Wally Downes, have recorded consecutive victories against Wycombe Wanderers and Plymouth Argyle. 

Team News:

Jordan Thompson serves the first of a three-match suspension following his dismissal against Rochdale on Boxing Day. Ollie Turton and Curtis Tilt are edging closer to returns, though Mark Cullen, Joe Dodoo, Jimmy Ryan and Max Clayton remain sidelined. 

The Dons will make a late check on the fitness of striker James Hanson, who limped off against Plymouth in midweek. Deji Oshilaja and Joe Pigott continue to miss out due to injury, however Mitch Pinnock returns from a one-game ban. 

The Manager's View: 

"It's another real tough game now away at Wimbledon but if the players are as honest as they were against Rochdale and keep having a go, then it'll turn round and we'll start winning games again."  

The Referee: 

Dean Whitestone will referee the match between the sides, having officiated 22 games so far this season. 

He last refereed a Blackpool fixture in April 2017, which came away at Notts County.
