Accrington v AFC Wimbledon preview
Last Updated: 21/09/18 11:38am
Accrington manager John Coleman has an almost full-strength squad to choose from for the visit of AFC Wimbledon.
Striker Billy Kee was troubled by a foot injury earlier in this season but has responded well to treatment. Kee's fellow forward Luke Charman is the only doubt with a minor quad muscle problem.
Coleman will be hoping his side can claim all three points and end a streak of four straight 1-1 draws in League One.
AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley is hopeful that James Hanson will be available for the trip to the Wham Stadium. Hanson, who has yet to score this season, returned to full training on Thursday after struggling with a calf injury.
Fellow forward Jake Jervis was also back in action after missing the midweek Checkatrade Trophy match due to a hamstring problem. However, Anthony Wordsworth is a doubt after having tonsillitis and Ardley will check on the fitness of Kwesi Appiah before finalising his squad.
This will be the first meeting between Accrington Stanley and AFC Wimbledon since the 2015/16 League Two play-offs, when the Wombles eliminated Stanley over two legs, before gaining promotion to League One by beating Plymouth at Wembley.
After winning six of the first seven meetings with AFC Wimbledon, Accrington are winless in the most recent five games, losing three and drawing twice.
Accrington Stanley have drawn each of their last four league games by a 1-1 scoreline; the last team to draw five successive Football League games 1-1 were Wolves in January 2005.
Wimbledon have lost four of their last five league games (W1), as many as they had lost in their previous 18 League One outings.
Six of Accrington Stanley's last seven goals have come from set-piece situations, including each of the last five.
