Shea faces injury lay-off

2 March 2015

Goalkeeper ruled out for Southend

Goalkeeper James Shea has been ruled out of the League 2 match at home to Southend tomorrow after scans confirmed that he has suffered a fractured ankle.

The 23-year-old, who has started all 41 games for Wimbledon in all competitions this season since his arrival last summer, was injured during the defeat at Hartlepool on Saturday.

Speaking during an interview for Dons Player, Neil Cox said: “James had a scan this morning and it showed that he had cracked a bone in his ankle. He did it before the goal on Saturday. He will be out for at least a couple of weeks, but we are awaiting more information to find out the full extent of the injury.

“It offers an opportunity now for whoever the manager decides to select. That’s why as a player you have to keep yourself going because someone can get injured.”

All at AFC Wimbledon wish James a speedy recovery after an excellent season so far that resulted in the former Arsenal goalkeeper signing a new contract.

The full five-minute update from Neil Cox ahead of Southend tomorrow is now on Dons Player and more team news will follow later on the official website.
