Team news: Marcus vying for a return against Blackpool

On-loan Brentford striker back in contention for away match on Saturday

14 November 2019

Nick Daws has spoken about the hunger and desire shown by Marcus Forss to get back out on the pitch for Wimbledon, as our top scorer this season gears up for his return.

Forss (pictured) has missed our last two first-team fixtures, the first due to his parent club Brentford not wanting him to be cup tied, but he’s raring to go now, according to our Assistant Manager.

“We did some work with Marcus on Tuesday,” said Nick. “We had a split group with the squad for Southend being slightly different. I worked with that squad which primarily played against Doncaster on Saturday. He just showed his hunger to score goals and that’s great, it’s what you want to see as a coach. He is hungry and he wants to score, he wants to be in and around that box all of the time. To have him back is a big plus.”

Nick reported that the medical team will check on the fitness levels of Max Sanders (quad strain), Ryan Delaney (ankle), and Anthony Wordsworth (calf) before naming the squad to face Blackpool. Rod McDonald has been back in training this week, but Saturday may come too soon for his return.

“Max was back on the grass today, and Ryan was also involved, but Anthony is a question mark,” said Nick. “We are in a situation where we are getting players back, Rod has been back involved for a couple of days. There are some positives, but probably an extra couple of days would have given us some more certainty. The squad is starting to look stronger and we are looking forward to having those boys back.”

Paul Kalambayi serves a one-match suspension on Saturday after picking up five bookings. 

Look out soon on the official website for a full interview with Nick Daws ahead of Blackpool.
