Walsall could be without captain George Dobson for their crucial clash with rock-bottom AFC Wimbledon.

Dobson is a doubt for the Saddlers after limping off during Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Blackpool with a hamstring injury.

Boss Dean Keates will be looking to make changes after watching his side win just one of their last 11 games in all competitions.

Liam Kinsella will be looking to return after missing the last two games but Adam Chambers remains sidelined with a broken foot.

Wimbledon boss Wally Downes will also seek to make changes after his side’s 2-0 defeat to Burton on Saturday.

New signing Shane McLoughlin is set to feature for the first time after starting on the bench in the last two games.

But Kwesi Appiah is set to miss out after picking up an injury against Burton, meaning Joe Pigott is likely to deputise.

Downes admitted his side face a ‘gargantuan’ task to avoid relegation after their latest defeat left them 10 points off safety.
