AFC Wimbledon vs. Oxford United

Kingsmeadow - The Fans' Stadium,

29th Dec 2012

15:00hrs

Wimbledon V Oxford

Oxford United take on Neil Ardley's Wimbledon this Saturday. The Dons have former Oxford favourite Jack Midson up front. Unfortunately when Oxford returned to the football league it was a case of Jack and Beano fighting for the same position.

Oxford have hit a bit of form of late where as the Dons find themselves in the unwanted position of the bottom two. Both teams are well aware of the difficulties of being in the Blue Square Premiership. But Oxford will not be charitable and will go for the 3 pts up for grabs.
