In Rhys we trust, says AFC Wimbledon boss Ardley
AFC Wimbledon host Fleetwood this weekend with Rhys Weston likely to continue his role in central defence in the continued absence of Alan Bennett and Will Antwi.
Ardley maintains his faith in Weston, despite the 32-year-old having a tough game against the Iron’s Chris Iwelumo on Saturday.
Ardley said: “Rhys has been in Malaysia where they play at a different tempo and there are no 6ft 4in giants like in England.
“He is a wily centre half who knows his job, rather than someone who is going to smash the centre forwards and win the headers.
“I don’t think anyone in our back four could cope with Iwelumo, and they played on that, so it was a tough afternoon for him.”
Fleetwood are third in the League Two table having lost once in four games.
