The Big Preview: AFC Wimbledon (A)

Seasiders Head To Wimbledon For League One Clash

21 February 2020

Blackpool are back on the road on Saturday with a trip to AFC Wimbledon in Sky Bet League One.

Both sides come into Saturday’s game in the bottom half of the table. Blackpool lie in 16th place whereas Wimbledon sit in 20th – one place and seven points above the drop zone. The same number of points separate both Blackpool and the Dons, although the Seasiders do have two games in hand over Saturday’s opponents.

The Dons will be looking to bounce back from their last result – a 5-0 drubbing at Oxford United on Tuesday evening, where manager Glyn Hodges admitted his side let their travelling supporters down.

Saturday’s match is the start of a big week for the Seasiders, who have a great opportunity to put recent results behind them with three matches in the space of a week. Interim manager, David Dunn, is in optimistic mood ahead of the trip to Kingsmeadow after a much improved performance in the narrow defeat at Bristol Rovers last weekend.

If you aren't making the trip to Wimbledon, we will have full coverage and reaction on Blackpoolfc.co.uk as well as on our official social media channels and iFollow channel.
