GEORGE Francomb will return to the AFC Wimbledon squad for tonight’s League Two clash with Southend United.
The on-loan Norwich City utility man has missed the Dons’ last two outings due to a troublesome shin injury.
Francomb is expected to be joined in the Wimbledon squad by Rashid Yussuff who was close to shaking off an impact injury to face Aldershot on Saturday.
Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley knows his boys will be up against it this evening following Southend’s impressive weekend win against Torquay.
“It will be difficult as the reports we had said that they played very well and caused Torquay all sorts of problems,” said Ardley.
“We are going to have to be on it as a team to make sure that we get something from the game. We got a point on Saturday and we probably would not have got that from a similar situation six weeks ago. We hung in there and showed a bit of grit and we have to take the positives from that.”
Wimbledon currently sit in 20th place in the League Two standings with 18 points from 18 games this season.
