Match Preview - Wimbledon vs. Notts County

Joe Jones

Victory for Notts County against Wimbledon on Saturday would be history in the making – the Magpies have never beaten them.

Granted, they have only ever met six times, and they’ve drawn twice, but nevertheless it is a statistic that they will want to rectify.

The first meeting was Boxing Day 1984, where the Dons beat Notts 3-2 at Plough Lane.

Meanwhile the last meeting was in an FA Cup replay back in January 2001, where Trond Andersen scored a goal a minute from penalties in extra time to clinch it for the London side.

Notts will be without several first-team players for Saturday's trip, with midfielder Rob Milsom still some weeks away from fitness after a serious knee injury which was sustained in training.

Also missing for Ricardo Moniz is right-back Elliott Hewitt, who sustained a hamstring injury in the League Cup defeat at Aston Villa and is expected to be out for a few more weeks alongside Kyle De Silva and Civard Sprockel.

There are also long-term absentees to contend with as Taylor McKenzie and Ronan Murray are out.

For Wimbledon, Jake Reeves is set to keep his place, but Lyle Taylor will not feature, as he serves the second of a three-match suspension following his dismissal at Mansfield.

Forwards Ade Azeez and Sean Rigg will be hoping for starts in Taylor's absence, after recent substitute appearances.
