Glyn Hodges said that Will Nightingale and other senior players are making good progress from injuries, but it’s too soon for them to return.
The Dons travel to Staffordshire for a match at Burton Albion tonight and our caretaker manager said that there are no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game. However, it’s too soon for others to be back in the fold.
Nightingale (hip), Luke O’Neill (calf), Rod McDonald (knee), and Michael Folivi (back) are all making their way back from injuries.
“The players involved on Saturday are fighting fit,” said Glyn. “Will was out on the grass yesterday, but he’s not fit enough for the game, so we will see how he is after this mini break. Michael has also not made it. There was quite a big group out there yesterday working with Jason as they try to get back. Rod and Luke were out there, so it’s quite nice that there’s no game this weekend. They can really put the work in and we can see who is going to be around for the Lincoln game.”
Callum Reilly (groin) and Adam Roscrow (thigh) are both a few weeks away from being able to return to training.
