Preview | Dale v AFC Wimbledon

16 March 2018

Dale v AFC Wimbledon | Sky Bet League One, Crown Oil Arena, Saturday 17th March, 3pm Kick-Off

Dale are at the Crown Oil Arena for the second of three home games in a week, hosting AFC Wimbledon. 

Tuesday night’s draw against Southend United made it seven points from nine, following the wins at Walsall and Rotherham United. 

The Dons' win over Oxford United last weekend moved them three points clear of the relegation zone, with Dale eight points behind Saturday's opponents with three games in hand.

The two sides played out a goalless draw earlier in the season at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.



Keith Hill said he is pleased with a "productive week", and wants his players to bounce into the match pressure free.
