The Dons will be looking to turn Plough Lane into a fortress once again with victory against the Latics.
The last time the two sides met Wimbledon edged the game 3-2 at Wigan in what was the then Interim Coach Mark Robinson’s first game in charge.
Ironically, since that game Wigan have also dispensed with their manager, and come into tonights game with Leam Richardson in temporary charge.
The Dons have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game, with regular on loan goalkeeper Sam Walker still out with an injured knee. So that will mean Wimbledon Youth Product Nik Tzanev continues between the sticks.
Tzanev will be looking to keep another clean sheet, to back up the one gained at Bristol Rovers on Saturday. He is a more than able deputy.
Dons only other injury concern is over Ethan Chislett who has a slight sprain.
It should prove an interesting game tonight, as a win will take the Dons potentially out of the drop zone depending on other results going their way, but if they play to their true potential then this is certainly possible.
Will it happen? Roll on 8.30pm and we shall see……
