Brown unlikely to ring the changes
AFC Wimbledon boss Terry Brown could name an unchanged side for the visit of Crewe.
Defender Gareth Gwillim will miss out again with a knee injury so Chris Bush deputises at left-back once more.
Winger Kieran Djalili is still sidelined by a hamstring problem but the Dons have no new injury worries following last week's 2-1 victory at Morecambe which moved them up to third in League Two.
Callum McNaughton continues at centre-half after extending his loan spell from West Ham earlier this week, while Jack Midson and Christian Jolley will again start in attack after both got on the scoresheet last Saturday.
A win could send the Dons top if both Southend and Crawley are beaten.
Midfielder Lee Bell could return for Crewe.
Bell has been struggling with a calf problem, but, after a midweek outing for the reserves, has declared himself fit for the trip.
However, doubts remain over defender David Artell's fitness as he continues to struggle with a hamstring injury. The centre-half has returned to training but is unlikely to be fit.
Alex boss Dario Gradi will be unable to call on midfielder Antoni Sarcevic and defender Danny Shelley as they have ankle injuries.
There are no other injury or suspension concerns for Gradi, whose side will be looking to bounce back from last week's home defeat to Southend.
Alex leave it late as Dons run ends
Crewe duo Adam Dugdale and Ajay Leitch-Smith both struck in the space of nine late second-half minutes to clinch a 3-1 victory and bring AFC Wimbledon's five-game unbeaten run in all competitions to a close.
Teenager Nick Powell fired the Railwaymen in front 25 seconds after the restart only for Christian Jolley, who missed a first-half sitter, to equalise 14 minutes later.
However that wasn't enough to stop Crewe, with defender Dugdale heading the visitors back in front before Leitch-Smith completed the victory two minutes from time.
After starting brightly the Dons should have fell behind in the 22nd minute but Shaun Miller somehow fired wide when well positioned, before Jolley bettered that miss just before the break.
Crewe keeper Steve Phillips failed to deal with a hopeful long ball allowing Jolley a clear run through on goal - however his shot agonisingly rolled wide.
The Dons midfielder was made to pay as Powell curled home his first goal for the Alex moments after the break, although he redeemed himself with an equaliser when he side-footed home from close range.
However Crewe went back in front in the 79th minute as Dugdale headed home, before Leitch-Smith netted a killer third on the counter-attack late on.
