Dack back for Wimbledon trip

Boss confirms Bradley is available for the trip south to take on the Dons

Tony Mowbray has confirmed that Bradley Dack will be available for selection for the trip south to tackle AFC Wimbledon.

Dack missed out on the weekend win at Walsall with a sickness bug, whilst starting pair Danny Graham and Elliott Bennett both felt the impact of the virus, too.
 
But things have cleared up and all three could well play their part for the game at the Cherry Red Records Stadium on Tuesday evening.
 
“The symptoms that were pretty evident at half time have stopped," Mowbray began. "It’s just about getting fluids and food into them, and building up their strength, really.
 
“We’ll make a judgement call tomorrow regarding what we’ll start with. Bradley is available. He got his boots on yesterday and took part in a light session. It’s about building up his strength again.
 
“If anybody has had his symptoms - and I’m sure everyone has - then you feel drained. He’s started eating again and will be stronger today and stronger tomorrow. We’ll see how we use him tomorrow night."
 
And there is further good news for the boss, with options becoming available and some first team players are closing in on a return to action, too.
 
The only long-term absentee is now Harry Chapman, with Craig Conway, Ben Gladwin and Peter Whittingham all joining in with first team training.
 
“The competition for places is really strong. [Marcus] Antonsson has shown he is ready to get back on the pitch and soon he’ll be ready to start games," Mowbray added.
 
“Craig Conway is going to train today, Peter Whittingham is also going to train today, Ben Gladwin will train today. All of a sudden the squad is looking deeper and we’ll look to utilise that for the rest of the season.
 
“The injury list is getting there. Two or three weeks ago we had six first team players sitting on the physic’s bench rather than our bench. We went to the young players and young lads like [Lewis] Travis has shown he can step in as well."
