AFC Wimbledon form and stats

When playing at home in the League One, AFC Wimbledon have managed 2 wins, 4 draws and suffered 2 defeats from 8 games. When AFC Wimbledon hosts teams that live in the bottom of the table (like Morecambe, Accrington Stanley, Doncaster Rovers, AFC Wimbledon, Gillingham, Crewe Alexandra and Shrewsbury Town), they have won 1 of 2 matches!

A nice win for AFC Wimbledon last time playing, versus Crewe Alexandra. That was also a home game and the match ended 3-2 with Ollie Palmer (2) and Jack Rudoni scoring for the victors. Midfield player Jack Rudoni got a match rating of 8.81 in that game, the max score being 10. Rudoni scored one goal, served one assist, hit four key passes and had 37 successful passes (of 41 total).

Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Portsmouth (1-2).

The home team are moderate favourites in this game. How does AFC Wimbledon handle that role? We have found five games in our database similar to this one, based on the home odds. The stats for these games are two wins, two draws and one defeat.

A decent goal production from AFC Wimbledon in their home games so far, with 13 goals from 8 league matches. Wimbledon have conceded 13 from these games.

Fleetwood Town form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Fleetwood Town so far with only 6 points returning home. The records show 1-3-4 (win-draw-lose). Three has not been a lucky number for Fleetwood as they have been defeated three times in a row since the Wycombe Wanderers match.

There might be some fixture complaints from Fleetwood as they are again playing away from home after losing on the road in their previous match, the League One match against Oxford United (1-3). Daniel Batty got a match rating of 7.21 in that game, top player of the team.

Preceding that, the 1-2 home loss versus Morecambe.

Fleetwood are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is two wins, three draws and three defeats. From a total of eight matches.

The schedule is very tough for Fleetwood now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A EFL Trophy game at Bolton Wanderers is waiting in only three days.

The travelling fans enjoy Fleetwood's attacking play in away games, having scored 13 goals in 8 league matches away. For Fleetwood, more than two goals on average per game end up in their own net. It's worth mentioning that 8 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.

Head 2 Head

Last ten meetings involving these participants: Wimbledon won three, Fleetwood Town triumphed in six and we saw one draw. four games with over 2,5 goals, six matches with under 2,5 goals.
