Northampton v AFC Wimbledon preview

Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Northampton Town and AFC Wimbledon at Sixfields Stadium.

Northampton boss Chris Wilder will welcome back Leon McSweeney when the Cobblers entertain AFC Wimbledon at Sixfields.

The former Hartlepool man missed Saturday's 1-1 draw at Morecambe with a back strain but should return to the starting XI in place of Ben Tozer who deputised at the Globe Arena.

Chris Hackett was taken off early at the weekend with a recurring heart problem but, despite that, Cobblers boss Wilder confirmed the former Millwall winger will be available.

Huddersfield loanee Cristian Lopez continues to wait patiently for his first start having made two appearances from the bench following his arrival from the Terriers.

Jake Nicholson and Danny Hylton may have earned places in AFC Wimbledon's starting line-up for the trip to Northampton.

Boss Neal Ardley has no new injury worries but plenty of selection dilemmas following Saturday's dramatic 4-3 win over Cheltenham.

Midfielder Nicholson climbed off the bench to score a debut goal and on-loan Rotherham striker Hylton netted twice as a substitute.

The Dons are again set to be without Aaron Morris, Kevin Sainte-Luce (both hamstring) and Callum Kennedy (ankle) as well as long-term absentees Rhys Weston (knee) and Charlie Strutton (broken leg).
