AFC Wimbledon will be without Kevin Feely and Sammy Moore when they host Mansfield.

On-loan defender Feely has this week been forced to go back to Charlton after a hamstring injury ruled him out for the next few weeks, and midfielder Moore serves a one-match ban for his red card at Bristol Rovers a fortnight ago.

Boss Neal Ardley must decide whether to make further changes after the Dons crashed to a 3-0 defeat at the Memorial Stadium.

Defender Will Antwi (hernia), striker Charlie Strutton (broken leg) and winger Chris Arthur (ankle) are still out, although the latter has resumed light training after two months on the sidelines.

Ben Hutchinson and Chris Clements will come back into the reckoning for Mansfield when they travel to AFC Wimbledon.

The duo have been out of the side through injury in recent weeks but both players featured in a behind-closed-doors match against Sheffield United on Tuesday.

"They have trained this week and came through the game and both of them will be in the squad that travels down," confirmed Mansfield manager Paul Cox, whose side have lost their last six league fixtures.

Cox has the likes of Paul Black, Matt Rhead, Ryan Tafazolli, Lee Beevers and Ollie Palmer vying for recalls should he wish to make any changes to his starting line up, but midfielder Lee Stevenson (calf) and defender Ritchie Sutton (thigh) remain out.
