Team news

As expected, loan signing Jake Carroll makes his debut in the left wing-back role, with striker Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro making way for him.

Daniel Nardiello replaces Akpa Akpro in attack after playing behind the front two at Accrington on Tuesday, while Danny Mayor moves over from the left to fill in as the attacking midfielder.

Akpa Akpro drops down to the bench, while youth striker Navid Nasseri has been promoted to substitute, meaning Tom Soares loses his place in the matchday squad.

The other sub from Tuesday night to miss out is Tope Obadeyi, who has been loaned to Plymouth.

2:17pm

Full line-ups

WIMBLEDON: Worner; Fuller, Bennett, Darren Jones; Francomb, Collins, Morris, Sammy Moore, Fenlon; Wyke, Hylton.

Subs: Arthur, Brown, Luke Moore, Midson, Sheringham, Sainte-Luce, Pell.  

BURY: Jensen; Veseli, Mills, McNulty; Jones, Miller, Tutte, Carroll; Mayor; Nardiello, Forrester.

Subs: Charles-Cook, Hinds, Procter, Akpa Akpro, Platt, Sedgwick, Nasseri.

Referee: Keith Hill (Hertfordshire).

2:12pm

Still waiting for the teams here at the Cherry Red Records Stadium, but one piece of news coming to us is that youth team striker Navid Nasseri has earned a place on the bench.

Manager David Flitcroft says he has performed well in training.

12:36pm

Wimbledon news

The hosts go into today's match on the back of three successive defeats - against Portsmouth, Oxford and Rochdale - and have just three wins to their name in the last 15 matches.

Manager Neal Ardley moved this week to stop the rot, signing two midfielders - former Tottenham Hotspur trainee Jake Nicholson and Scunthorpe United captain Michael Collins.

However, former Shakers favourite Peter Sweeney has failed to recover from a foot injury sufficiently to force his way back into the team, while defender Will Antwi is a doubt with a hamstring strain.

Ardley believes recent results have not reflected their performances, but admits Bury, who have lost once in their last eight matches, will pose another tough test.

He said: "There's no easy games, and it's no comfort that we deserved something from two of the last three games we've lost.

"Bury are a tough side. They play a lot more football now under David Flitcroft, he's got them playing some really good stuff, but we're desperate to put on a good performance for our home fans, we haven't done that for a while.

"We're in a spell where we have some really tough games coming up, but I'm confident with this group of lads we will achieve more than we need to.

"We need to make sure we finish as high up the league as we can and with as strong a finish as we can, and hopefully, if we can iron out the inconsistencies, then we might have a chance next year."

The Dons go into today's game in 15th place in the League Two table, five points and six places better off than Bury.

12:10pm

Team news

New signing Jake Carroll , who joined this week on a month's loan from Huddersfield Town, is expected to make his debut as a left wing-back.

That could free up winger Danny Mayor to push forward into the attacking midfield role vacated by Ashley Grimes, who will be missing for at least three weeks with a hamstring injury.

If Mayor is picked in that role then striker Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro could be the one to make way, with Daniel Nardiello, who filled in behind the front two in Tuesday night's 0-0 draw at Accrington, moving further forward to partner Anton Forrester in attack.

Not very loquacious today Craig, or is there not much to tell? By the way Veseli is from Renens which is just up the lake from where I live. Say hello,from me if you see him ;-) all the best for the second half!

What a crazy game but a brilliant result for the shakers,we stole victory from the jaws of a probable defeat.Well done to the lads for hanging in there and bringing home the 3 points.

One gripe why did our reporter say that Mayor stormed through the Bury defence when it was Wimbledon who conceeded the late goal?,he must have got carried away with all of the late excitement and drama.
