Spurs versus AFC Wimbledon: (match preview)
The visit of AFC Wimbledon to Wembley on Sunday, is a game of the utmost importance to both Spurs’ season and to Pochettino’s ambition of winning a trophy. The general consensus among the supporters is that they want Pochettino to field a squad strong enough of going all the way. Whilst Sundays game against the league one club should be nothing less than a comprehensive victory. Pochettino will know that experimenting against such a club is not without risk, a perfect example of that being the Wycombe game last season. The visitors who are fighting for their lives near the bottom of the league one table, have already played Spurs once this season. It came against our development squad during a checkatrade trophy game in October, Spurs very narrowly being denied at the death by an almost full strength dons team. Wimbledon have nothing to lose and I’m sure they’ll give it a right old go, but with a strong enough Spurs side which will hopefully include a couple of youth players, I’m very confident that we’ll progress comfortably into round 4.
