Winger edging towards first-team return
George Francomb will take another step on the comeback trail tomorrow with an appearance for our development squad at Luton Town tomorrow.
Though the 24-year-old winger was on the bench for Saturday’s match against Bolton Wanderers, assistant manager Neil Cox said that he will build-up his minutes for Alan Reeves’ squad, rather than be involved for Scunthorpe United tomorrow night.
“The Under-21s are away at Luton and hopefully we can get an hour into George there,” said Neil. Obviously, he was on the bench to offer us experience on Saturday, but he needs to get some minutes under his belt and we are hoping he will start that tomorrow.”
George has not featured for the first-team since April after he suffered a knee injury that required an operation.
An update from Neil Cox, including the latest team news ahead of Scunthorpe United, is now on Dons Player.
