Team News

For the final game of the season, Gary Johnson will not have Jordan Wynter, Lee Vaughan, Matt Taylor or Asa Hall available. However, Birmingham City loanee Will Packwood is in with a chance of being fit, as is Danny Haynes. Wide player Wes Burns is fit, having played a subdued part in Cheltenham’s relegation confirming defeat last weekend.

AFC Wimbledon manager Neil Ardley will be without defender Callum Kennedy, he is likely to miss the game with a thigh injury. Ardley is expected to field a younger side, as the Dons look ahead to next season. Therefore, youngsters such as Ben Harrison, Tom Beere, Ryan Sweeney and David Fitzpatrick may all make rare starts in what is the last game of the 2014-15 season.
 
Gary Johnson has spoken to the media ahead of his side’s visit to AFC Wimbledon and after signing a new two year deal in on Thursday.
