Team news for Hartlepool

27 January 2014

Dons boss to assess his options tomorrow

Callum Kennedy is doubtful for tomorrow night’s match against Hartlepool United with the ankle injury that he suffered against Exeter City on Saturday.

The left-back will therefore be assessed tomorrow, but Jim Fenlon (pictured) has now served his three-match suspension and he could be poised for a return.

Speaking to Rob Cornell on Dons Player, Neal Ardley indicated that he may aim to freshen up his squad by making changes, but he is yet to decide on his starting line-up.

“We need to have faith in the whole squad and I’ve told the boys that, but we have not made any decisions yet,” Neal said. “I could not tell you what the team will be and we will assess the players tomorrow. They will be in here for a pre-match briefing tomorrow and we will work out where we’re going with it in the afternoon.”

Neal says it will be an attacking line-up once again with his forwards having clicked into gear in recent matches.

“It would be great to get goals from all over the pitch,” added the Wimbledon manager. “I know that Harry Pell and Sammy Moore are capable of chipping in, but it was pleasing on Saturday to have three forwards on the pitch with two of them scoring and the other creating a goal. That’s not a bad return from them. We need to try and continue these statistics. We are putting attacking players on the pitch and trying to get the right players in the right areas to get us on the goals trail. It is down to these players to do it and thankfully they did on Saturday.

“Hartlepool have brought in Marlon Harewood and also Jack Barmby, who scored for them on Saturday, but we are at home and the onus is on us. We wanted to use these two home games to pick up maximum points and we’ll try and do that, but I’m sure they will put up a good fight.”
