Match Preview: AFC Wimbledon vs. Southend United

3 March 2015

A match preview ahead of the Blues' trip to AFC Wimbledon in Sky Bet League Two.

The Lowdown…

It’s not been a bad season for the Dons, who currently sit in mid-table in the division. 

Consistency has been their downfall during the campaign. They have only gone a maximum of two games with back-to-back wins, and have yet to string a run of positive results together.

The Officials…

Referee: Graham Scott
Assistant Referees: Paul Kelly and Alan Young
Fourth Official: Nigel Lugg

They Said What?...

Dave Penney: “If we perform like we did in the JPT game there earlier in the season then we should pick something up. Neal Ardley will be looking for a reaction. Neal’s lost players – [Matt] Tubbs has gone and so has – obviously – Adam Barrett. I imagine he’ll look to change things up a little.”

Neil Cox: “With just 13 games left everyone needs to start winning games. They may play a diamond formation or a 4-4-2, but we will just have to adapt. Our players are raring to go; they are looking forward to another home game and hopefully getting three points.”
