AFC Wimbledon defender Paul Robinson to sit out Bradford test

Defender Paul Robinson will miss AFC Wimbledon's Sky Bet League One clash against Bradford on Saturday.

The 35-year-old centre-back is suffering with a back injury, but could return for the Boxing Day trip to Portsmouth.

Forward Harry Forrester will also be out of action as he serves a suspension.

Kwesi Appiah is pushing for his first start since September after coming on as a second-half substitute last weekend following a hamstring injury.

Bradford midfielder Jake Reeves could be in line for his first start in four matches after returning from a knock to replace the misfiring Paul Taylor at half-time of last weekend's win at Southend.

Defender Nathaniel Knight-Percival, who was taken off after an hour at Roots Hall, is a doubt having undergone a scan on a hamstring issue as is forward Jordan Gibson after tweaking his groin in training last week.

However, fellow defenders Tony McMahon and Matt Kilgallon and midfielder Nicky Law are all expected to feature despite feeling after effects of the win this week.

Defender Adam Chicksen, who has been out for nine weeks with a hamstring tear, is expected to return by the end of next month but goalkeeper Colin Doyle (knee) and Alex Jones (ankle) are not likely to be back until February and March respectively.
