Forss returns from suspension as AFC Wimbledon face Rochdale

AFC Wimbledon will have forward Marcus Forss available again following suspension for the Sky Bet League One match against Rochdale.

Forss, on loan from Brentford, sat out the 3-2 defeat at Peterborough as he served a one-match ban for a red card against Bristol Rovers.

Midfielder Anthony Wordsworth, fit again following Achilles and shoulder problems, came off the bench to score last weekend, so could be in contention for a start. Centre-back Rod McDonald (knee) continues his rehabilitation.

Assistant manager Glyn Hodges will again be in charge of the team, with boss Wally Downes suspended after being charged by the Football Association with an breach of betting regulations.

Rochdale boss Brian Barry-Murphy could again rotate his team following the 3-0 defeat against Wycombe.

Teenager Luke Matheson was an unused substitute last weekend, having scored a memorable goal in the Carabao Cup third-round tie at Manchester United.

Jimmy Ryan, Calvin Andrew and Aaron Wilbraham all came into the side, with midfielders Aaron Morley and Stephen Dooley also starting on the bench.

Centre-back Eoghan O’Connell has been carrying a knock, while Ryan McLaughlin (heel) and on-loan Blackburn defender Tyler Magloire (groin) continue their own recovery.
