Match Preview: AFC Wimbledon (H)

Seasiders Set To Face The Dons

19 October 2018

The first of back-to-back home games sees Blackpool host AFC Wimbledon at Bloomfield Road tomorrow, kick-off 3pm.

It will be a welcome return to action for The Seasiders, who missed out on a fixture last weekend due to a postponement. 

Pool are nine matches unbeaten in the league, though the need to win more games has been stressed in the build-up to this game. AFC Wimbledon, meanwhile, will be aiming to get back on track, having lost their last three by one-goal margins.  

Team News: 

Harry Pritchard and Chris Taylor are available for selection, while Steven Davies has now been signed up on a short-term contract. Jimmy Ryan (knee) and Max Clayton (hamstring) remain the longer-term absentees.

The Dons could welcome Scott Wagstaff back from injury, though Anthony Wordsworth misses out. Late checks will be made on Andy Barcham and Joe Piggott.  

The Manager's View: 

The Ref: 

Anthony Backhouse will be the man in the middle, having refereed Blackpool's Carabao Cup fixture at Doncaster Rovers in August. 

He has officiated in 12 matches so far this season, with five of those games coming in League One.
