Peter Sweeney: Sidelined for a spell

Peter Sweeney: Sidelined for a spell

AFC Wimbledon will be without Jim Fenlon and Peter Sweeney when they host Torquay.

Full-back Fenlon is suspended for the next three matches after he was sent off towards the end of last weekend's 3-0 win at Wycombe, so Callum Kennedy comes into the side.

Sweeney will be out for even longer after breaking a bone in his foot in training, which is likely to keep him on the sidelines for six to eight weeks.

Fellow midfielder George Francomb is a doubt with a calf problem while on-loan winger Kaid Mohamed has gone back to Port Vale and defender Rhys Weston has moved to non-league Sutton.

Chris Hargreaves has no fresh injury worries as he prepares for his first game in management when Torquay head to AFC Wimbledon.

The former Bournemouth first-team coach is back with the Gulls where he spent three years as a player and he has brought Cherries striker Jayden Stockley with him.

Stockley, back for a second spell with Torquay, looks set to be involved on Saturday as Hargreaves looks for a winning start to life as a Football League manager.

Kevin Nicholson, restored at left-back after two months in the 1-1 draw with Morecambe last weekend, will hope to keep his place as the Gulls look to climb out of the relegation zone.
