Dion Conroy could face Wimbledon despite hamstring injury

Swindon central defender Dion Conroy could be involved against County Ground visitors AFC Wimbledon despite suffering a hamstring injury.

Conroy limped off 15 minutes from time during last weekend's home draw against Milton Keynes Dons.

He subsequently underwent a scan, but initial signs are positive, and he has taken part in training this week without any reaction.

If the scan results show any issues, though, then head coach Luke Williams will not take any chances. Williams, meanwhile, has reported a clean bill of health elsewhere in his squad.

AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley will assess the fitness of at least five first-team regulars ahead of their trip to Swindon.

Dean Parrett, Andy Barcham, Tom Soares and Tom Elliott were all unavailable for the match day squad as the Dons suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Bristol Rovers last time out.

Darius Charles could only make the bench at Kingsmeadow last Saturday and will hope to be involved this time around.

Will Nightingale, Jon Meades, Dannie Bulman, Alfie Egan and Dominic Poleon were all given recalls and could keep their places in the side as Ardley's men look to respond to the defeat to Rovers.
