NEAL Ardley is hoping his side’s Checkatrade Trophy goal glut in midweek will translate into league form when they visit Oxford United tomorrow.

Only Bolton Wanderers have found the net fewer times in the EFL than AFC Wimbledon, who have notched just five times in 11 games.

A youthful line-up put an end to that on Tuesday night, winning 4-3 against Totten-ham’s Under 21s.

Dons boss Ardley felt his side had been performing better than recent results suggested, but knows United will provide a far stiffer test.

“Anyone who has been watching us in the last five games can see we have been playing well and we look like quite a decent team,” he told Get Surrey.

“It’s just been that problem in front of goal and that feeling of scoring.

“We scored some good goals but at the weekend we know it’s going to be a different kettle of fish.

“There is always a certain amount of naivety in a young team, so obviously you get your chance.

“But we are now up against a good team this weekend who probably aren’t going to be like (that).

“There are no guarantees for Saturday but we will keep going, keep coaching and hopefully it will come.”
