QPR loanee Frankie Sutherland could make his first start for AFC Wimbledon in Saturday’s FA Cup first round tie at York City.
The midfielder came off the bench to make his debut for the final 20 minutes of the disappointing away defeat to Northampton last week.
Sutherland is eligible to play under the terms of his loan deal and will be looking to make his full debut against the Minstermen.
Dons will also be boosted by vice captain Barry Fuller’s return to fitness after being forced off with a foot injury against the Cobblers.
Wimbledon chief Neal Ardley has confirmed he expects to have a fully fit squad to choose from ahead of his the clash at Bootham Crescent.
In his playing days Ardley was part of FA Cup runs with Wimbledon and is keen to bring the excitement of a cup run to his side
He said: “I think the FA Cup has got its mojo back.
“If we can make sure come 5pm on Saturday that we’re still in the hat then that brings excitement. It’s really important. We need to have that edge to us and be hungry to do well in it.”
Ardley also expects a high intensity performance in the FA Cup tie after his sides lacklustre performance against Northampton.
“This week we’ve had a real intensity in training,” Ardley said.
“We’ve raised the levels if that’s possible. It has been a week of getting into a few people’s heads and talking to them about their mentality.”
