Will Antwi and Kevin Sainte-Luce could be added to the AFC Wimbledon squad for the visit of Northampton.

Defender Antwi has yet to feature this season following a hernia operation and winger Saint-Luce has missed the last four matches with a hamstring injury.

But the duo got an hour under their belts for the Dons' Under-21 side on Tuesday to put themselves in the frame for first-team returns.

Boss Neal Ardley has no new injury concerns and could stick with the starting XI narrowly beaten by a last-gasp Jamie Cureton winner at Cheltenham last weekend.

Northampton boss Aidy Boothroyd has limited attacking options.

The Cobblers have been dealt a blow with the news that on-loan forward Jacob Blyth has returned to parent club Leicester to have treatment on a thigh problem, while Clive Platt is nursing a calf injury.

With a broken leg leaving Alex Nicholls sidelined until January and captain Kelvin Langmead - who can operate as a forward - out of action until November, Roy O'Donovan is Town's only senior striker available.

That means youngsters Ivan Toney and JJ Hooper are vying for a place up front and, despite defender Matt Heath's absence due to a thigh strain, Boothroyd is able to select Ian Morris after the midfielder recovered from a groin complaint.
