AFC Wimbledon V Oldham at The Cherry Red Records Stadium : Match Preview

27 April 2017

Goalkeeper James Shea looks set to return for AFC Wimbledon

Goalkeeper James Shea looks set to return to the AFC Wimbledon team on Sunday when they host Oldham.

Shea, back in the matchday squad as an unused substitute for the 3-0 loss at Bradford last weekend, has shrugged off the illness that had been keeping him sidelined.

Forward Tom Elliott, who has been out with a hamstring injury, will be assessed ahead of the game.

The same applies to defender Jon Meades after he was substituted in the first half of the Bradford match.

Oldham boss John Sheridan will shuffle his pack now their safety has been confirmed.

Latics will spend a 21st straight season in the third tier thanks to last weekend's 1-1 draw against Rochdale having lost just three of their last 15 games.

Sheridan has mentioned giving the likes of Lee Croft, Ryan Flynn, Aiden O'Neill, Josh Law and George Edmundson an outing.

Goalkeeper Connor Ripley will play the final game of his loan spell before returning to Middlesbrough, where he is expected to challenge for the number-one jersey.
