Double boost for The Dons ahead of Fleetwood challenge

Team news from our manager with home game up next

6 February 2020

Glyn Hodges confirmed that Max Sanders is back in full training and our manager also reported that new signing Julien Lamy is in contention to make his debut against Fleetwood on Saturday.

Midfielder Sanders has been injured since the Peterborough home match, but he has shaken off a hamstring problem, and Lamy is making a very good impression in training, according to Glyn.

“I put him up against Paul Osew today and that was a good race! They are both at it and are very quick. Julien will be involved, in terms of whether he starts the game, I am just looking at the options. He’s bright, he’s a breath of fresh air, he’s a talent, and he will play a big part for us.

“We worked on a couple of formations this morning, we’ve done their stuff today, and moving forward what we’re going to do. Tomorrow’s session will be about what we expect from the players and how we can get this game won. We will be working on how we can cause the opposition as many problems as possible. It’s concentrating on what we can bring to the party.

“We’ve got Will and Paul Kalambayi still out. Kwesi has a little niggle, so we are just trying to make sure he comes back in, to assess whether he’s involved or not. Max is back, so we have good numbers out there. It was a really enjoyable session today with having all the boys back and a lot of players to choose from.”

Kalambayi spent last week on a residential rehabilitation programme at St George’s Park, the National Football Centre in Burton, and he’s expected to return to full training soon. Will Nightingale’s recovery is progressing as planned, and he is on schedule to make a return in March.
