Welcome to live coverage of Hull City’s first ever trip to AFC Wimbledon’s new Plough Lane stadium.
We’re live in the capital to see if Grant McCann’s Tigers can record a league double over The Dons and reignite their stuttering hunt for automatic promotion.
Having found themselves 3-1 up at Doncaster last Saturday midway through the game, City were on course to remain inside the top two.
McCann’s men conspired to draw 3-3 with Rovers scoring a dramatic free-kick deep into injury time to salvage a point, before Tuesday night’s 1-0 home loss to Ipswich turned up the heat on McCann and his players.
Struggling Wimbledon had won just once at their new stadium since December 2nd – when they beat Peterborough – until Tuesday night when Jack Rudoni struck an 89th minute winner.
We’ll bring you all the build-up to the 3pm kick-off followed by all the reaction from the manager.
Tom Eaves is back in contention here this afternoon, according to Grant McCann.
Tom Eaves has trained this week, which is good. He’ll be part of the group that travels to Wimbledon and it’s pleasing to see that everyone is in good shape heading into the weekend.
It’s a nice boost to have Tom back. He’s great to have around the group and he’s a very likeable guy and a good player. It’s been a bit stop-start for Eavesy with the injuries he’s picked up in both matches at Sunderland and it’s been frustrating for him.
He’s been working hard and he’s looking strong so it’s nice to have him back fit and available.

From the manager...
With 15 games to go, we’re in a healthy position. Of course, we can be better.
If we reflect on where we are at this present time, we’re in a good position. We’re coming into March right in the thick of a promotion race.
We’ve got to take stock of what we’re about, how we’re going to go about the next 15 games and stay calm and be very clear with our objectives within this building.
Nothing is won in March. Peterborough and Lincoln are in the ascendancy, they’re probably the favourites now, but we’ve got to focus on our own job.
We’ve got to stay calm, we’ve got to be clear in our thinking and we’ve got to treat every game with the same respect we have from day one.
Setting the scene...
We'll start with a preview to the weekend's action, and a look at the key talking points as City look to get back to winning ways after Tuesday night's disappointment against Ipswich, which saw the heat cranked up again on Grant McCann.
