Wanderers will be looking to build on Tuesday night's win against Barnsley when they head to Plough Lane on Saturday.

Wimbeldon have started the new season strongly, beating Doncaster Rovers and Charlton Athletic over the past week.

Marc Iles caught up with Daniel Marsh from the South London Press to get the lowdown on the Dons.

What can we expect from Wimbledon on Saturday?

They’ve had a really good start to the season. I think a lot of sides will underestimate Wimbledon this year. They had a really good end to the season and seem to have kicked it up a notch ever since Mark Robinson took charge.

They will be hoping to build on good results in midweek and at the weekend, and they’ll be confident of doing that.

Last season they finished just above the relegation zone. Are you optimistic this season will be better?

Yeah, I think so. Mark Robinson has said he wants more than that yearly struggle for survival. I think if you ask most Wimbledon fans, they’ll be confident that they won’t be scrapping for survival on the last day this year.

It’s difficult what to say a step up, other than just avoiding a relegation scrap, would be because the quality in League One this year is mad. But I’m pretty confident that they won’t be down there this year.

With the new stadium and the youngsters coming through, things seem to be moving in the right direction…

Definitely. There is a real feeling that now is the time to kick on. Being back at Plough Lane will add an extra element on Saturday. They’ve been in League One for four or five years now and to still be scrapping for survival is not ideal, it’s not what anyone wants.

They are fan owned and there are some question marks over how far you can go with that, even among their own fanbase. But I think they are well-placed to build on last year. They’ve lost a couple of players, Joe Pigott being the main one, and he will be difficult to replace. But the early signs are promising.

What will it be like to be back at Plough Lane after so long?

I’m pretty sure it is a sell-out so it’s going to be a red-hot atmosphere. The players will be up for it – it’s kind of drilled into everyone what the club means to its fans, so there won’t be anyone who doesn’t understand what Saturday means.

It will be a tough game because Bolton are quietly fancied. I have predicted them to go up this season and a lot of people are expecting them to be up there. It should be a really good game.

Who should Wanderers look out for?

Ayoub Assal burst onto the scene last year and came out of nowhere. He’s another of these Academy players the club seems to churn out on a regular basis. He’s a real live wire – he’s pacy and direct.

He scored quite a few goals last year, which I don’t think anyone was expecting. After losing Pigott in the summer, Robinson has pushed Assal up as a striker. He made an immediate impact on Saturday, netting the first goal against Doncaster, and he’ll probably be the one to watch out for.

There’s a lot of hopes for Aaron Pressley, the striker who has come in on loan from Brentford. He was really prolific for Brentford B last year but there are question marks over whether he can make the step up to senior football and replicate that this year.

And finally, what’s your score prediction?

I think it will be tight. I think they will be well up for it – the first game back at Plough Lane with fans. I’m going to sit on the fence and go for a draw. I’ll go 1-1.
