The 19-year-old, who is on loan from West Ham, left Kingsmeadow on crutches after the 2-2 draw against Port Vale on Thursday night.

But an X-ray confirmed there is no fracture and McCallum, who has scored four goals in six games since joining the Dons, could even be fit for Saturday's clash with Burton.

Dons physio Mike Rayner told the club's official website: "The X-ray confirmed there was no fracture. Paul was very sore afterwards and that is always a worry, but hopefully managing the injury well early on has lessened his time out.

"I have spoken to West Ham and they are hopeful that he will back in training come Thursday or Friday."

McCallum's fellow striker Charlie Strutton is back in full training after six weeks out with a knee injury.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
