TEAM NEWS
United can make mathematically sure of safety as they travel to AFC Wimbledon on Saturday looking to build on a three game unbeaten run. Michael Appleton's side have picked up seven points out of nine to steer away from the danger zone and have an almost full squad to choose from. Will Hoskins is the only absentee with an ankle injury but Matt Bevans, who has been out of action since September with a knee injury, is now back in full training.

Danny Hylton returns to his former club and there are interesting choices up front where Hylton, Patrick Hoban, Kyle Vassell and Kemar Roofe shared the two striker roles during the two Easter games. 

See Michael Appleton give his thoughts ahead of the game in Yellow Player, where the Preview Show features Danny Hylton and Alex MacDonald as well as a special feature on last week's Footgolf extravganza. We willl also have full commentary on the whole game.   

THE OPPOSITION
Wimbledon are seven games unbeaten at home and boss Neal Ardley is looking for his side to end the season strongly and secure their best ever finish.

“The mentality of the players at home is that they feel invincible,” he said. “The one match we did lose at home this year was against Carlisle and that was one of those games when you went away wondering how we had lost it. We obviously need to try and rectify the away form before the end of the season.

"If we can make the top-12 and get 60 points-plus then we can look back on it with a bit of pride, particularly if you look at our cup runs and academy players coming through. We need to finish the season strongly and get our summer right to take us onto the next level. There are a lot of big clubs fighting for their lives below us and we have to make sure we do not become one of those in the future.”

Alfie Potter, Sean Rigg and Dannie Bulman are all involved against their former club.
