Stanley still suffering

Accrington Stanley

Paul Cook's injury crisis shows little sign of abating as Accrington prepare to host AFC Wimbledon.

Right-back Danny Coid and on-loan Wigan centre-back Rob Kiernan are expected to miss the rest of the season with respective knee and ankle problems, while skipper Dean Winnard is unlikely to feature again this term after undergoing ankle surgery on Wednesday.

Aristote Nsiala (suspended) and Sean Hessey (hamstring) complete Cook’s defensive woes and forward Craig Linfield is set to continue as an emergency right-back after filling the position during Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to Oxford.

Midfielder Bryan Hughes remains on the sidelines with a hamstring injury, while long-term absentee Alan Burton has resumed light training following his double hernia operation.

Stanley head into the game on the back of consecutive defeats and they have won just one of 10 games since Cook succeeded John Coleman last month.
