Crawley Town may be looking to put the final nail in AFC Wimbledon's championship coffin tonight but Lee Minshull has no intention of letting them do it.

The top two in Blue Square Premier lock horns at Broadfield Stadium knowing a win for the Red Devils would end Dons' already slim title hopes by putting them nine points clear with four games in hand.

Although Minshull recognises Wimbledon's chances of automation promotion are effectively over, he would still love to get one over Crawley.

"Of course it would be nice," he said.

"But we have to concentrate on ourselves and we need a few more wins to guarantee getting in the play offs and finish as high as we can so we get a home game.

"But to get one over Crawley would be brilliant too, though to be fair to them they have done well to be where they are, six points ahead of us with four games in hand."

A medial ligament injury suffered in September, a cracked toe in November and a broken metatarsal in December have restricted the 25 year-old to just 11 appearances this term.

Having returned against Grimsby Town a week earlier, he came off the bench last Saturday to grab a consolation goal in the disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Kidderminster Harriers but admitted it was good to be back.

"It was good coming on on Saturday and getting the goal, it felt great," he said.

"It was a mixture of emotions really, relief and a lot passion and it meant a lot.

"I have never been one for injuries but I have had three separate fairly long term ones this season and I have been forced to watch so many games you start to feel guilty you are not helping the boys out.

"Now I can get my head down for the last eight games and hopefully we will get in the play-offs and hopefully I can play a part in that.

"There is still a lot to play for and I would hate to be coming back into a side that was mid-table with nothing to play for, this is much better."
