Match Previews

Match Preview: A.F.C Wimbledon (A)

6 March 2020

Wanderers are back in Sky Bet League One action tomorrow afternoon at Kingsmeadow with Keith Hill’s men taking on A.F.C Wimbledon.

A.F.C Wimbledon are currently 19th in the table and look set to secure a fifth consecutive season in the third tier of English football.

Team News

In his pre-match press conference with bwfc.co.uk, Wanderers manager Keith Hill said that Jack Hobbs is out, with Yoan Zouma and Kean Bryan facing late fitness tests for tomorrow's fixture.

Anthony Georgiou may come into contention, after joining up with the squad earlier this week.

Ronan Darcy returned to full contact training this week after his absence and may also be in line to face the Wimbly Womblies.

Head to Head

Since the club was founded in 2002, we have taken on the Dons three times.

The Whites took on Glyn Hodges men earlier this season, which ended in a 2-2 draw at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Match Coverage

As usual, match updates will be provided by the club’s official twitter account (@OfficialBWFC). We will keep you up to date with the action to ensure you don’t miss a kick – delivering a match report shortly after the final whistle with post-match reaction from manager, Keith Hill.

Live commentary will also be available by the iFollow BWFC channel (subscribe via the website), with the Bolton FM team providing the coverage.

Betting Odds

A.F.C Wimbledon come into the game as favourites at the time of writing according to Sky Bet, and are being priced at 1/1 (Evens) to win the game.

Wanderers are regarded as underdogs and are priced at 5/2 to win the game, with a draw being priced at 12/5. Odds are subject to change.

Man in the Middle – Marc Edwards

Saturday’s match will be officiated by Marc Edwards. He will be assisted by Andrew Laver and Daniel Cook with Abbas Khan appointed as the fourth official.

Edwards has officiated 23 matches this season, with the most recent being a draw between Oldham Athletic and Forest Green Rovers. 

So far this campaign he has handed out 60 yellow cards (2.61 per game) and one red card (0.04 per game).

Currently in his third season as a referee, Edwards last refereed a Wanderers game in December.

Oddly enough, that fixture was Bolton Wanderers vs. A.F.C Wimbledon.

Key man for the Dons – Joe Pigott

Since joining from Maidstone United in January 2018, Pigott has made over 100 appearances for the Wimbly Womblies.

He scored four minutes into his debut for the club, and has gone on to score over 30 competitive goals.

This season, he has scored nine goals in 38 games.

Match Reports

Report: A.F.C Wimbledon 0-0 Bolton Wanderers

7 March 2020

Bolton Wanderers picked up their second successive point after being held to a scoreless draw by AFC Wimbledon at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

Keith Hill made two changes from Wanderers’ previous game with Ethan Hamilton and Ryan Delaney coming into the starting line-up at the expense of Kean Bryan and Jack Hobbs who both missed out through injury.

The visitors had an early scare when Remi Matthews’ attempted clearance hit Joe Pigott with the ball looping into the air before going wide of goal.

Wanderers responded with the lively Denni Politic getting past his marker before seeing a low cross cut out by Luke O’Neill.

Pigott made a block inside the six-yard box, following Ali Crawford’s corner, but Daryl Murphy was unable to take advantage of the opportunity from the rebound.

Toto Nsiala put in an important challenge to prevent Kwesi Appiah from bursting through and then earned his side a free-kick after he was bundled over by Callum Reilly.

Wanderers won themselves a free-kick out wide and Crawford’s resulting set-piece was aimed for Daryl Murphy. The ball then fell into the path of Politic whose thunderbolt from the edge of the box was blocked.

Crawford then latched onto a loose ball before sending his shot from 20 yards just wide.

This was good attacking play from the visitors.

At the other end, Matthews held onto Guinness-Walker’s drive after the home side enjoyed a rare foray into the Wanderers box.

Wimbledon enjoyed another chance shortly afterward when O’Neill rose to plant a header on Reilly’s corner only to see his effort go over the bar.

The chances sparked the home side into life but Pigott found Jason Lowe perfectly placed to prevent Wagstaff’s cross from reaching the tall striker.

Just before the half came to a close, Daryl Murphy got on the end of Lowe’s cross into the box but could only see his effort blocked.

Deep into time added on Politic created some space for himself before smashing a 20-yarder towards goal, but Mads Sorensen was ideally placed to keep out the Romanian star.

Crawford attempted a cheeky effort from the halfway line as Wanderers restarted the game but the attempt doesn’t trouble Joe Day in the Wimbledon goal.

Hill made his first change of the afternoon shortly afterwards when he took off the injured Lowe. Josh Emmanuel came on for the Wanderers’ skipper.

Joe Dodoo tried to get a shot in through a sea of bodies after being lined up by Daryl Murphy but the wide man was eventually crowded out.

Pigott and Reilly once again combined to carve out an opportunity but Hamilton got in the way to deny the hosts a chance on goal.

A linesman’s flag earned Wanderers a reprieve when Appiah got the ball in the back of the net, but the effort was ruled out for an offside earlier in the build-up.

Hamilton was picked out by Politic and the Scot hit a thunderbolt from distance but it was bravely blocked by Terell Thomas.

Nsiala intercepted an intended pass from Pigott to Wagstaff as the latter tried to sneak in at the near post.

Wanderers earned a corner after Emmanuel’s excellent burst forward resulted in Politic’s centre being diverted behind.

From Crawford’s resulting corner, Politic headed the ball towards the far post where Daryl Murphy was unable to find the target.

Hill made his second change with just over 20 minutes remaining when he brought on Ronan Darcy for Crawford.

The home side then tried to get a grip on the game and had three chances in quick succession which were all dealt with by Wanderers.

Anthony Georgiou came on for his Wanderers’ debut when he replaced Daryl Murphy for the final 15 minutes of the game.

A couple of half-chances fell for either side but the game ground out to a goalless conclusion.
