The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

AFC WIM­BLE­DON boss Neal Ard­ley has paid trib­ute to Charlton boss Chris Pow­ell af­ter Ad­dicks striker Michael Smith joined the Dons on loan un­til Jan­uary.

Smith was sought af­ter by a host of clubs but Pow­ell thought Wim­ble­don would be the ideal suit­ors for the 21-year-old, who spent time on loan at New­port last term.

“We have looked at a lot of strik­ers as the sum­mer pro­gressed but we re­ally be­lieved that Michael ticked all the boxes,” said boss Ard­ley.

“There had been about seven clubs af­ter him all sum­mer but Chris was re­ally keen for him to come here and he helped us out in ev­ery way.”
