Wimbledon game is off


Nevertheless, it would be a pity to waste this meticulously researched preview......

Wimbledon were in the bottom four when, after five consecutive home defeats, former manager Glyn Hodges left by mutual consent at the end of January. He was replaced by long-term coach Mark Robinson who guided them to safety largely as a result of  a tremendous April run of four wins and two draws, scoring seventeen goals in the process and conceding only six. Robinson took the plaudits for avoiding relegation but many Charlton fans might just wonder whether the January arrival on loan from Sunderland of George Dobson might have played a small part.

The departure to Ipswich of seventeen goal Joe Pigott meant that many predicted hard times for AFCW this season. However, they were in the top six after seven games and they host Charlton on Boxing Day only four points behind us with three games in hand. Their current form is good. Since losing to a late goal at Portsmouth on November 20th they have put together a four match unbeaten run with wins at home to Crewe and away to Accrington. In their most recent game they were only denied a win at Wycombe by a 96th minute penalty. The goals seem to be flowing - if you include their 4-3 FA Cup win over Cheltenham they have scored thirteen in five. Ollie Palmer (7), Jack Rudoni (7)  and Ayoub Assal (6) have stepped into Pigott's shoes.

To be updated when the new date is announced.

Best wishes for Christmas. Let's hope the Gillingham game doesn't go the same way !
