Match Preview: AFC Wimbledon (A)

Blackpool Travel To AFC Wimbledon On Tuesday Evening

27 October 2020

Blackpool will be looking to claim their second consecutive victory in a matter of days, as they travel to AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday evening.

The Seasiders will be full of confidence going into the game, after Sullay Kaikai’s second half strike earned Neil Critchley’s side all three points against MK Dons at Bloomfield Road.

AFC Wimbledon will be searching for their first victory in three League outings, after they played out a 1-1 draw against Burton Albion on Saturday.

Despite Brighton loanee Ryan Longman netting his third goal of the season to open the scoring, an immediate equaliser from Kane Hemmings rescued a point for Burton Albion to frustrate Glyn Hodges side.

Neil Critchley:

“We want to follow up from Saturday and get the three points. We’ve got a relentless schedule coming up, so we’ve got to think carefully about the team we select as freshness is a massive part of that.”

“It’ll be a tough game. Wimbledon have a clear way of playing, they’re well organised.

“They haven’t scored a lot of goals lately, but they haven’t conceded many either. They will be a hard team to play against and limit you to very few chances.

Glyn Hodges:

“We’ve only got one point from our home games so far, which isn’t good enough. We need a win, so hopefully we can get that and give a good account of ourselves.”

Team News:

Neil Critchley will have a strong squad at his disposal ahead of the trip to AFC Wimbledon, with no new injury concerns. Blackpool's Head Coach also confirmed that Matty Virtue is awaiting the result from his scan, whilst Keshi Anderson has returned to light training on the pitch.
