Team News: AFC Wimbledon v Pools

27 January 2014

We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Tuesday night’s game against AFC Wimbledon at The Cherry Red Records Stadium (7.45pm kick-off).

Colin Cooper is set to be without James Poole for the Club’s first-ever trip to face AFC Wimbledon with the front man still feeling the effects of a hamstring problem.

Poole was substituted during the game against Rochdale two weeks ago and has subsequently missed the fixtures against Fleetwood Town and York City.

Jordan Richards serves the second of a three-game suspension following his sending-off at Fleetwood, while fellow right-back Michael Duckworth is also sidelined after double hernia surgery.

Luke Williams will hope to keep his place after impressing on his debut, while Jack Barmby pressed his claims for a starting berth by coming off the bench to score spectacularly in his first Pools appearance on Saturday.

Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley is without Andy Frampton after the defender disloated a shoulder against Scunthorpe United recently, though Darren Jones arrived from Shrewsbury Town to make his debut against Exeter at the weekend.

Peter Sweeney remains sidelined with a broken foot, while former Pools man Charlie Wyke is on loan with The Dons and is expected to start on Tuesday night.
