AFC Wimbledon will be without Semi Ajayi for the visit of Hartlepool, with the defender returning to parent club Cardiff following a loan spell.

Bayo Akinfenwa is back in the squad after a thigh problem caused him to miss last weekend's win at York.

Winger Sean Rigg is touch-and-go with a dead leg, but James Shea (groin) and Andy Barcham are not yet available.

Manager Neil Ardley told Dons Player: "It is likely to be another two weeks before James can return to training and probably a month for Andy Barcham. We have to put them on the back-burner for now."

Hartlepool will be without central defender Scott Harrison after he was sent off in last weekend's 2-1 home defeat to Crawley.

Harrison was deemed to have handled on the goal-line and was shown a straight red card, with Pools deciding against an appeal.

Carl Magnay serves the fifth game of his six-match ban for spitting, while fellow defender Harry Worley remains sidelined with an ankle injury.

Dan Jones was forced off against the Reds with a head injury but is likely to be available and could move into the centre to replace Harrison.
