Neal Ardley has one or two worries ahead of AFC Wimbledon's clash with Swindon

Neal Ardley has one or two worries ahead of AFC Wimbledon's clash with Swindon

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley may make a couple of changes due to "niggles" in his squad as they welcome Swindon in Sky Bet League One.

Midfielder George Francomb is struggling with a tight hamstring so is expected to start the game on the bench as they look ahead to the Bury game on Tuesday.

Chris Whelpdale has had an injection in his ankle after playing in the development squad in midweek and will be assessed on Friday but he is unlikely to feature against the Robins.

Swindon head coach Luke Williams will be without Raphael Branco following his sending-off against Bolton.

His dismissal, after he elbowed Lawrie Wilson in the 1-0 defeat last weekend, adds another name to the growing list of players missing for the Robins.

Lloyd Jones faces a late fitness test due to a muscle injury and Brad Barry is expected to return after he suffered a dead leg on Tuesday but Michael Doughty remains unavailable due to family issues.

The Robins are yet to learn the full extent of Jon Obika's injury but he is expected to be out for a while and Jamie Sendles-White has had surgery on his knee but will miss the rest of the season.
