AFC Wimbledon Chief Executive Erik Samuelson has expressed renewed confidence that Thursday’s televised game against Port Vale will take place.
We have to be confident that we will be playing tomorrow night…
The game was in doubt due to the bad weather conditions but a group of dedicated Dons fans helped clear snow from the Kingsmeadow pitch on Wednesday.
Samuelson told the official AFC Wimbledon website: “It has been an absolutely fantastic effort. The pitch is now nearly clear. Though it is a bit soft in places, we have to be confident that we will be playing tomorrow night.”
Ironically, Vale’s home game against Wimbledon in December was the victim of more bad weather and failed a pitch inspection.
