Game preview

We didn´t select this match by chance, but because AFC Wimbledon hold special significance in English football and the FA Cup.

Our older readers have probably heard of the famous former top-tier team FC Wimbledon, that won the FA Cup during the late 80s by beating Liverpool in the final thanks to the driving force of their “Crazy Gang”.

When the early 2000s arrived, they were still a member of the Premier League, but then entered an unstable period and suffered relegation. The club´s poor performances resulted with the team owner relocating and rebranding the franchise in a new city, but the supporters had other ideas.

The relocation of the club was met with stiff resistance and disapproval from the fans, who wanted to preserve the team´s old identity. Fans and supporters rallied and joined forces in order to save their beloved club by founding a completely new team – AFC Wimbledon. However, the new phoenix club had to start from scratch and climb its way back to the top from the lowest tier in the English football pyramid.

After a series of excellent results and back-to-back promotions, AFC Wimbledon came all the way back to League One, the third tier in the English football pyramid. That was the end of their fairytale story because in the last decade they have turned into a “yo-yo” club, bouncing between the third and the fourth tier.

Last season they were relegated from League One, but judging by their results this year they should be safe from relegation to the semi-professional National League.

AFC Wimbledon vs. Weymouth Prediction

This Tuesday evening at the newly built Plough Lane, which was opened couple of years ago to honor their legendary old ground, the hosts shouldn´t have any difficulties against a team that is two tiers below them.

A routine win was expected from AFC Wimbledon in the first game. It started according to the script when the guests took the lead after only five minutes, but Weymouth hit back in the second half to force the replay.

The guests should find keeping up against a fully professional side much more difficult away from home. They are also bottom of the league in the sixth tier or the National League South, so we expect Wimbledon to win by a margin of at least two goals.
