Gregory shakes off illness

Steven Gregory is set to return to the AFC Wimbledon squad when they host Rotherham.

Gregory missed last weekend's 1-1 draw at fellow strugglers Barnet through illness but has recovered in time for what will be the final match of his three-month loan spell from Bournemouth.

However, fellow midfielder Jonathan Meades is a doubt for the match after picking up a knee injury during the first half at Underhill.

Top scorer Byron Harrison is poised to return the starting line-up after a back problem restricted him to a substitute appearance against the Bees.

On-loan West Ham forward Paul McCallum completes a three-match ban while midfielders Sammy Moore and Rashid Yussuff and striker Jason Prior remain on the casualty list.

Rotherham are expected to have Ian Sharps at their disposal.

The Millers skipper had to go off during last weekend's 2-1 defeat to Gillingham with a broken nose, but he is expected to play through the pain barrier.

Utility man Mark Bradley has recovered from a groin injury and will return to the squad after Tuesday's FA Cup second-round replay postponement at Notts County gave him extra time to return to fitness.

He should come back in at right-back, with Johnny Mullins set to make way.

Elsewhere, there are unlikely to be too many other changes to the squad that boss Steve Evans named for that game at Meadow Lane.

Goalkeeper Scott Shearer (knee) and forward Kieran Agard (thigh) will be in the squad again, though are unlikely to make the starting XI.

Dale Tonge (knee/ankle), Lionel Ainsworth (shoulder), Craig Morgan (foot) and David Noble (ankle) are now the only occupants of the treatment room.
