If AFC Wimbledon were a song they would be... Bon Jovi - Livin' on a Prayer. "We're halfway there", is the key; as AFC Wimbledon are probably about halfway towards replicating their more successful elders. They have achieved considerable amounts since their entrance into the 'Combined Counties League' in 2002. This season will be their fifth in League Two, which has so far proven a stumbling block for the Dons. They finished 15th last season, their highest ever finish - and will be hoping to hold onto what they've got, and improve on it at that.
