Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portman Road will host Saturday’s League One encounter between Ipswich Town and AFC Wimbledon. The Tractor Boys are still eyeing their first win of the season, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Wimbledon. Summer signing Macauley Bonne, who scored a brace in the 2-2 draw with Milton Keynes Dons at the weekend, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders, while Ben Morris remains in the recovery room.
The Dons, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Sunderland. AFC Wimbledon failed to win the previous three league fixtures, meaning that Ipswich Town will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Mark Robinson should have a full squad to choose from, and the AFC Wimbledon head coach is likely to stick to the 3-2-4-1 formation.
Highlighted Player (David Cornell):
Born in Waunarlwydd, Wales on March 28, 1991, David Cornell is a goalkeeper who plays for Northampton Town in the League Two. The 180-cm tall shot-stopper is a product of the Swansea City football school, but he did not make any appearances for the Swans at senior level.
Cornell played for the likes of Port Talbot Town, Hereford United, St. Mirren, and Portsmouth on loan before signing a permanent contract with Oldham Athletic in the 2015/2016 season. In the summer of 2016, he joined Northampton Town on a two-year deal.
Speaking of his international career, David Cornell has three caps with the Wales U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. The Northampton Town goalkeeper wears the number 1 jersey, and his preferred foot is right. He has a contract with the Cobblers until June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (AFC Wimbledon):
Based in Kingston upon Thames, AFC Wimbledon are a professional football club that compete in the third tier of English football, commonly known as the League One. AFC Wimbledon were formed by former Wimbledon FC supporters in 2002 following the FA decision to allow the club to relocate to Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire, only 90 kilometers north of Wimbledon.
The Dons welcome their rivals at Kingsmeadow, the stadium with the capacity of 4,850. AFC Wimbledon play their home games in blue shirts and blue shorts, whilst the colour of their away kit is yellow. The Dons won the Lanes Cup on two occasions (2007/2008, 2011/2012), Supporters Direct Cup three times (2002/2003, 2005/2006, 2009/2010), while lifting the Surrey Seniors Cup in the 2004/2005 season.
Popular British actor Vinnie Jones is considered one of the most famous Wimbledon players, scoring 14 goals in 177 appearances for the club. Jones has 7 Premier League red cards, making him one of the dirtiest players in the history of English football.
