Preview | AFC Wimbledon (A)

25 October 2022

Crewe Alexandra travel to London to on AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday (7.45pm).

Alex Morris’s side will be looking to build on an improved performance at the weekend and secure all three points at Plough Lane.

The Opposition

Wimbledon sit 17th in the table on 15 points, having won two of their last five league fixtures.

In their most recent outing, the Wombles were 2-1 winners at Rochdale, courtesy of strikes from Ayoub Assal and Josh Davison.

The Gaffer

Johnnie Jackson took the reins at Plough Lane in May, penning a two-year deal with the ambition to guide the club back to League One.

Jackson was previously boss at Charlton Athletic, between December 2021 to May 2022, when he guided the Addicks club to 13th in League One.

Fighting Talk

Lee Bell (Crewe assistant manager): “If we keep putting in performances we did like Saturday, I’m sure more people will appreciate it. Wimbledon have come off the back of a good result at the weekend and we’re looking forward to what will be another test for us.”

Jack Currie (Wimbledon defender): “It’s always great to play in front of our plans at Plough Lane, I just hope that we can put in a performance that will get them up for it.”

Team News

Crewe continue to be without Rod McDonald (groin) for the next four weeks. Callum Ainley (shoulder), Christopher Long (ankle) and Charlie Colkett (hamstring) remain sidelined.

Wimbledon will hope captain Alex Woodyard will have come through unscathed following his first league outing on Saturday. They also welcome back Paris Maghoma following suspension.

Head-to-Head

The Railwaymen have won three of their six meeting against AFC Wimbledon, scoring 14 times across all fixtures between both sides.

Most recently, the Alex defeated the Dons 3-1 in April 2022, in what was Morris’s first game as Crewe manager. Mika Mandron, Christopher Long and Bassala Sambou were on the scoresheet.

Officials

Lee Swabey will take charge of the fixture on Tuesday evening, having last refereed a Crewe match in December 2021; a 2-0 defeat at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

He will be assisted by Paul Kelly and Damith Bandara, with Marc Wilson appointed as fourth official.
