Southend v Wimbledon preview

Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Southend United and AFC Wimbledon at Roots Hall.

Winger Will Atkinson is the only absentee after suffering internal bleeding in his eye during last week's Capital One Cup game against Walsall.

Boss Phil Brown has fielded two unchanged sides in the league so far which has returned two wins and two clean sheets.

He is unlikely to tinker with a winning side, with Myles Weston and Barry Corr set to continue in attack after the former opened the scoring during Saturday's 2-0 win over Stevenage and the latter had a hand in both goals.

AFC Wimbledon are set to be without defenders Jack Smith and Andy Frampton.

Smith missed Saturday's 1-0 win at Luton after damaging knee ligaments against MK Dons last week and Frampton remains on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

Boss Neal Ardley could therefore name an unchanged side following an impressive display at Kenilworth Road, with former Shrimpers captain Adam Barrett keeping his place in central defence.

Matt Tubbs, who has scored three of Wimbledon's four goals so far this season, continues up front alongside Adebayo Akinfenwa.
