AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley admits his players have given him a selection headache for the FA Cup tie with Liverpool after watching them record a fourth win in five games against Exeter City.
The Dons have enjoyed an excellent run in December and followed up the Boxing Day triumph at Portsmouth with a classy 4-1 festive victory over the Grecians to end 2014 with a win at Kingsmeadow.
Ade Azeez made the most of Bayo Akinfenwa’s absence by netting twice against Exeter as the Beast had to settle for a goalscoring cameo off the bench to complete the scoring in a dominant performance from the hosts.
Wimbledon begin 2015 with a mouth-watering cup clash with Brendan Rodgers’ European giants and Ardley reckons he has a squad that is bang in form as he prepares for the visit of the Anfield club.
"I have some selection headaches going into the Liverpool game but we just need to keep this form going now," Ardley said.
"The team for that game won't be picked by who played well these past two games, it will be picked on who is best for the jobs I need to give them in a really good game.
"I don't see the Liverpool game as the biggest of my career, I see it as an exciting game, as a tactical challenge but I will enjoy it, more so probably than going into these games.
"We're in a good place, we know we have blips but I thought the energy and the desire in the second half was brilliant.
"I'm not sure it is the performance of the season, I thought we were lucky at half time to be 1-0 up and I have to say I think Exeter are a good side.
"First half we struggled a little bit and I had to change the shape at half time and in the second half we had more energy.
“But whenever you win by a high score it is because the opposition are throwing caution to the wind and we were ruthless in our finishing."
Sammy Moore, who was absent at Pompey, was again missing for the Exeter game through illness but is expected to be in contention to face Liverpool on Monday week.
