Chris Wilder is hoping not to have one record against his name. The first OUFC manager with 7 straight defeats to his name.
Looking at the performance against Rotherham on Saturday I don’t think he will have that record.
Injured players are on the mend with some starting to make short appearances.
Wimbledon have a caretaker manager at present Simon Bassey who might give new signing Yado Mambo debut, while Curtis Osano could make his first start this season.
