Bury without Kean Bryan and Jacob Mellis for AFC Wimbledon clash

Bury will be missing both Kean Bryan and Jacob Mellis for AFC Wimbledon's visit to Gigg Lane.

Defender Bryan and midfielder Mellis were sent off within 10 minutes of each other in a feisty derby clash with Rochdale at the weekend, while five other Shakers received cautions.

Bryan's absence could open the door for Leon Barnett's return, though boss David Flitcroft is mindful that both he and Nathan Cameron are still troubled by knee problems.

Ishmael Miller made his debut at the weekend and could be involved again but Chris Brown (knee), Craig Jones (thigh) and Tom Pope (ribs) remain missing.

Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley has no fresh injury or suspension concerns.

Lyle Taylor is expected to keep his place up front despite missing a penalty in the Dons' 0-0 draw with Swindon on Saturday.

George Francomb was left out of the squad at the weekend due to a tight hamstring and it remains a doubt whether he will be available for Tuesday's game.

Wimbledon are looking to make it seven league games unbeaten.
