The Reds face a familiar foe at the Store First Stadium tomorrow afternoon.
Stanley and AFC Wimbledon have been relegation rivals in each of the last two seasons and last faced each other in the final game of last term, when the Dons stayed up despite James Gray’s double giving Stanley a 3-2 win.
The Dons looked set for a more comfortable campaign this time round after taking seven points from their first three games, winning 1-0 at Luton and Southend.
Neal Ardley’s men then suffered two successive home defeats before coming back from 4-2 down last Saturday to draw 4-4 at 10-man Carlisle.
Matt Tubbs, on loan from Bournemouth, scored twice to take his tally to seven goals already this term although summer signing Adebayo Akinfenwa is yet to score.
And Stanley have a fine record against the Dons since they were promoted to the League in 2011. Last term’s 1-1 draw at Kingsmeadow is the only time the Reds have failed to beat them in six meetings.
Last week's 3-2 win at home to Tranmere - Stanley's first of the season - lifted James Beattie's men off the bottom of League 2 and up to 21st place.
But things will look even rosier for the Reds if they can make it back-to-back wins on Saturday. Victory could put them as high as 15th while Wimbledon go into the game in 13th on eight points.
“We talked about the two home games being back to back,” said Stanley boss Beattie. “We’ll always look to win games and this week will be no different.”
Adam Buxton should continue at left-back as Michael Liddle (knee) is doubtful while the Reds will be without Jordan Mustoe and Connor Martin after they left the club this week after their short-term contracts expired.
After signing near the start of last month, Mustoe came straight into the side at left-back, with Beattie hoping to give him a longer deal later. But having brought midfielder Andy Procter back to the club on deadline day, Stanley couldn't afford to keep Mustoe or Martin on.
Martin had hoped to push for a starting place after arriving in the summer but the young midfielder failed to make a first-team appearance.
“With the way that finances are here, a few players have had to move on to reduce the weekly outgoings. It’s as simple as that,” Beattie told the club website.
“Anything we’re looking at will have to be free loan or a very cheap loan so I might have to call a few favours in but any player that does come in will have to improve the squad and make the group better as well as being the right character for our dressing room.”
Striker James Alabi has returned to Stoke after making three appearances during a month's loan with the Reds.
