Boss: "We Know That Wimbledon Will Be A Challenge"

22 January 2021

It took a fine finish from Oli Finney deep into injury time to secure Crewe Alexandra three valuable points against AFC Wimbledon last month and David Artell expects another tough encounter against Glyn Hodges’ Dons in the return fixture.

The Dons had trailed to a Mikael Mandron tap-in from Harry Pickering’s low cross but they rallied really well to force home a late equaliser at their new Plough Lane Stadium with Ryan Longman on target only for Finney to pop up with a late winner barely 60 seconds later.

Ahead of our return fixture at the Alexandra Stadium, David told the club’s official website: “It will be another challenge against Wimbledon. They have some really good players and we saw that when we went down there.

“We don’t fear anyone in the division but we respect everyone and that doesn’t matter if that is Wimbledon, Hull or Sunderland.

“If you need evidence of anything happening in football, you just need to see what happened at Anfield last night. That is one of the top leagues in world, never mind League One.

He added: “I like Glyn a lot. He is a proper football guy and he has a good team. They may have had a bit of a sticky patch but that doesn’t mean too much. We have to turn it into a positive not a negative but we know we have to play well to get a result and keep our unbeaten run going.”
