Saturday’s clash with Fulham signals the start of a busy period and skipper Dean Lewington says the Dons are ready.
“We haven’t got another international break until March so this is the real nitty gritty part of the season now,” he told red dot.
“This is a part of the season where the games will come thick and fast and there will be a lot of points on offer.
“We’ve got so many games coming up though and we want to try and get on a run, pick up as many points as we can and try to move up the table.”
He added: “We’ve got some good games coming up, starting with Fulham, who were a side that were close to me in terms of where I grew up.
“It’s a game I’ve been looking forward to since the fixtures came out and this is a nice one for me.”
