AFC Wimbledon News and Form

AFC Wimbledon still have big relegation concerns at the moment, despite putting together some great form. They are on a three-match winning streak at the moment in the division and they are unbeaten in four. A win won’t get them out of the drop zone this weekend because of goal difference but it will edge them closer to potential safety. The Dons have taken back to back league home wins, earning victories against Doncaster and Peterborough, two sides currently in the top eight. That leaves their home record for the season at W5 D3 L11.

The Dons have averaged under a goal per game in the league on home soil. They have managed to take just the four home clean sheets, half of those cropping up in their last two home fixtures. Four of the five home wins they have taken have been by a one-goal margin only. Their home form is clearly on the rise at the moment, but they are still boasting the worst home record in the entire division. No team has scored fewer than them either.
