MATCH PREVIEW: AFC WIMBLEDON v POMPEY

27 March 2016

All you need to know about League Two clash

It will certainly be a Happy Easter on the south coast if Pompey can pick up all three points on Monday.

The Blues roared back into form with a convincing 4-0 victory over Notts County at Fratton Park on Good Friday.

And now they will look to remain in the hunt for automatic promotion with another win at AFC Wimbledon.

The Cherry Red Records Stadium clash kicks-off at 12.45pm and is being televised live on Sky Sports One.

Pompey have lost on both their previous two visits there, with a 4-0 thumping in 2014 followed by a one-goal defeat last term.

The television cameras were also there when the sides met on the south coast earlier in the campaign and those watching will be hoping to avoid another dour 0-0 draw.

Paul Cook’s side are not the only ones with promotion hopes, as their hosts will still be looking to nab a play-off spot.

But they have dropped out of the top seven after a run of seven games that have yielded just one victory.

The Dons were beaten 1-0 at Hartlepool on Friday and currently sit ninth in the table, four points outside the top seven.


TEAM NEWS
Brian Murphy (calf) and Kieron Freeman (knee) are both injured for Pompey, while Ryan Fulton and Conor Wilkinson are on international duty.

Former Blues skipper Paul Robinson is a doubt for the hosts after missing their last game with a thigh injury.
