A look ahead to the trip to the Cherry Red Records Stadium

AFC WIMBLEDON VS EXETER CITY
SKY BET LEAGUE 2
CHERRY RED RECORDS STADIUM
SATURDAY 29TH AUGUST 2015
KICK-OFF: 3:00PM


EXETER CITY play their final fixture of August this weekend as they travel to AFC Wimbledon.

The Dons are looking for a second win of the campaign, having recorded a 2-1 success at Crawley Town on matchday two. They were knocked out of the Capital One Cup at the first round by Cardiff City, and drew 1-1 at Carlisle last time out.

In the Wombles' last home fixture, they went down 2-1 to Cambridge United, so they are still seeking a first success on their own turf in 2015/16.

Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley recently told Dons Player that strikers Tom Elliott and Lyle Taylor are both fit to play against the Grecians after their respective knocks, but Dannie Bulman is still struggling with an ankle injury.

For Exeter City, David Wheeler is hoping for a return to league action after making his return from injury at Sunderland in midweek, while Tom Nichols is also looking to come back into contention.




Tickets are going very fast for Exeter City fans at Kingsmeadow, with only a handful of seated tickets remaining.

Terrace tickets will be available on the day.

Full pricing can be found here.

Head-to-head:

Exeter City wins: 3

"It would be ideal to keep my place. We have just got to recover right and train properly and go again. The games are coming thick and fast at the minute, so the squad is going to be used. You have just got to stay on your toes and be ready to go." - Tom McCready, speaking to the Express & Echo

"
They are a very free-flowing team who pass it from the back. Paul Tisdale has his style, and when they stick to it they have a lot of tactically-good players. They are not a huge side but they have always caused us problems – even when we beat them at home in the past, they have had several chances to alter the game and not taken them." - AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley
