AFC Wimbledon Vs Hereford United, Sat 20 Aug 2011

Published Add your comment

Christian Jolley is pushing for a place in the AFC Wimbledon line-up for the visit of Hereford.

Jolley came on as a half-time substitute for striker Charles Ademano at Plymouth on Tuesday and set up both goals for Jack Midson in a 2-0 win.

Midfielder Max Porter also dropped to the bench for a rest and he could come back in with Sammy Moore making way.

Boss Terry Brown has no new injury worries with Mat Mitchel-King and Fraser Franks the only absentees.

Summer signing Mitchel-King is edging closer to a return after resuming training following a bout of glandular fever and fellow defender Franks is also not far away having been out since March with a knee injury.

Simon Clist is set to make his Hereford debut having been brought in to boost the club`s injury problems.

The versatile left-sided player, who can operate at full-back or in midfield, has been brought in on loan from Oxford until January.

Manager Jamie Pitman is likely to utilise his services in midfield following Thursday`s news that left-back Joe Heath did not crack a rib in the midweek defeat to Macclesfield and is available to face the Dons.

The Bulls are, however, without number one goalkeeper Adam Bartlett, who faces a couple of weeks on the sidelines nursing a thigh injury but still managed to take to the bench for the 4-0 reverse against the Silkmen.

Midfielder Rob Purdie is also doubtful as he struggles with a thigh problem of his own while striker Stuart Fleetwood (shoulder) continues to play through the pain barrier.M
