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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
