Trott In Contention for Wimbledon First Team Place
Wally Downes said he’s had a positive response from his players this week, as he seeks to guide Wimbledon to a first victory of the season on Saturday.
Downes said, “Goalkeeper Nathan Trott (groin) will come into contention for the match, having come through a development game.
Since the midweek Carabao Cup defeat, Wally said that the focus has concentrated on tightening up at the back after three matches when his side have conceded two goals in each game so far.
Both Wimbledon and Accrington head into Saturday’s game seeking a first win of 2019/20, though the visitors have played a game less with their scheduled opener against Bury having been suspended.
