Recent respective form guides

Wimbledon's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While Dons have scored 6, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Derby County is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. Rams have conceded 8 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Wimbledon find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 45 games have yielded only 26 points. Derby County are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 52 points from 45 matches.
