AFC Wimbledon assistant manager Neil Cox has backed the club’s misfiring forward line to come good ahead of tonight’s trip to Newport.
Wimbledon are boosted at the back by the return of Will Antwi from a hamstring injury for this evening’s clash with County but the real problem lies at the other end of the field.
The Dons are not short of numbers up front with the likes of Jack Midson, Charlie Wyke, Charlie Sheringham and Danny Hylton all on the books.
However, the strike-force have drawn blanks in their last three League Two outings and are on a disappointing run of four straight defeats that has seen them tumble down the table.
Their most recent setback came on Saturday as Bury struck in injury-time to heap the woe on the Kingsmeadow club.
Boss Neal Ardley has been working on finishing in training and his right-hand man Cox thinks it’s only a matter of time before the team starts finding the net again.
Cox said: “We keep getting into the right areas, it’s up to the forwards to take their chances.
“We keep getting into the areas though so it will come. Hopefully it will come on Tuesday night.
“The centre forwards have been working really hard. We’ve just got to get them a bit more service into the box and hopefully one will drop for them.
“You make your own luck and it’s about time we started making some luck. One of them will take their chance and we’ll go and win three or four-nil against somebody.”
Former Dons Christian Jolley, Lee Minshull, Max Porter, Ryan Jackson and Ismail Yakubu could all turn out against their old club tonight.
