Gary Alexander is prepared for one of the most important games of his career when AFC Wimbledon take on Fleetwood in their final-day relegation decider.

The Dons striker has returned to full training following an ankle problem and is set to feature at Kingsmeadow in a relegation decider the hosts must win.

Alexander has not found the net since February but is hoping he will be able to help his team-mates avoid the drop before returning to parent club Crawley.

He told the club's official website: "This is massive. It would be high up amongst my list of achievements if I can help AFC Wimbledon stay up.

"After being here for three months, I want to be a part of it and help the lads. We have to do whatever it takes to get the result.

"When we were bottom we would have taken this situation of needing a win from the last game to stay up.

"It does not matter whether that comes through pretty football or the long ball because we need three points to stay in the Football League. If we all stick together then that is going to happen."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
