George Francomb is touch-and-go for AFC Wimbledon’s trip to Tranmere Rovers tomorrow.
The former Norwich City winger missed last weekend’s battling win over Portsmouth as the Dons did the League Two double over the Fratton Park outfit.
He is still struggling with the muscle problem that kept him out of that 1-0 victory and will face a late fitness test before Wimbeldon make a call on their squad.
Manager Neal Ardley will not be in attendance after undergoing a hip operation yesterday as coaches Simon Bassey and Neil Cox take charge of first-team affairs.
“We had organised what would happen this week and there is nothing different really in training,” assistant boss Cox told Dons Player.
“It is just a different voice because I took training today. Everything has gone really well and the lads have worked really hard.
“They knew the situation with the manager because he explained it to them.
“Credit to the boys, they have come in and just got on with their jobs.
“We have worked hard on our shape to get ready for the Tranmere game.
“We have looked at their formation and how we are going to stop them playing, but also on how we are going to try and win the game.
“ We will try to get down the wings and hopefully get some balls in for the boys up front to feed off and score goals.
“We have a young partnership at the back and it is going to be a hard test for them. Tranmere are going to be big and strong up front and we will have to be up for a battle.”
Dannie Bulman will serve the final match of his three-game suspension this weekend while attacking full-back Callum Kennedy remains sidelined for the next four or five weeks.
