Francomb facing three-match ban

AFC Wimbledon are set to be without George Francomb when they host Plymouth.

The winger was sent off during the Boxing Day defeat by Southend and faces a three-match ban unless the Dons successfully appeal against the decision.

Skipper Alan Bennett needs a fitness test on the ankle injury which kept him out on Thursday while midfielder Harry Pell remains sidelined with a knee problem.

But George Porter returns from a ban and fellow wideman Chris Arthur (ankle) should be involved again after his first appearance in two months as a sub against the Shrimpers.

Plymouth manager John Sheridan must decide whether to recall full-back Durrell Berry.

Berry missed Plymouth's 3-2 victory at promotion-chasing Oxford on Boxing Day through suspension and may be kept out of the side by 17-year-old stand-in Ben Purrington, who made a real impression on his debut.

Fellow left-back Jamie Reckord was ruled out of the trip to the Kassam Stadium with an ankle injury and he is unlikely to add to his 16 appearances for the Pilgrims, with his loan from Wolves set to end on January 1.

Sheridan will look to in-form strike pair Caolan Lavery and Reuben Reid for inspiration as his side aim for a third straight win.
