AFC Wimbledon back in league action against top-of-the-table Bury

After the elation of beating MK Dons in midweek, AFC Wimbledon return to League Two action this afternoon as they face top-of-the-table Bury.

The 3-2 win at Stadium MK in the Football League Trophy saw Dons fans in buoyant mood, but manager Neil Ardley has warned everyone not to get carried away and that it was time to cut out the inconsistencies.

“We know we are good and that we can mix it,” he said.

“We are just inconsistent, we need to find the key to being better and we are striving for it.”

Bury, managed by David Flitcroft, have lost just two league matches this season and are eight points ahead of the Wombles in the table.

“David has done a good job and took them up the table last season,” added Ardley.

“He has made the squad even stronger and they are the favourites to go up in many people’s eyes.”

Bury’s biggest threat, Kelvin Etuhu, was rested mid-week but is set to make a return today.

Wimbledon will welcome back fit again striker George Oakley after two months out, but he may have to settle for a place on the bench given the form of Matt Tubbs and Adebayo Akinfenwa.

Akinfenwa said: “We have to put the win behind us now because we have a massive game coming up against a team top of the league.”
