Alan Bennett: Back to full fitness

Team news for Good Friday's League Two clash between AFC Wimbledon and Newport County at Kingsmeadow Stadium.

AFC Wimbledon captain Alan Bennett will return from injury for the visit of Newport.

The centre-half has recovered from the thigh strain which kept him out of the last two matches.

Midfielder Sammy Moore is back after a two-match ban and defender Andy Frampton is available despite feeling a calf niggle during the 1-0 win at Southend last weekend.

Full-back Tom Richards is a doubt after missing training this week due to illness and winger Kevin Sainte-Luce is still sidelined by a knee injury.

Newport striker Aaron O'Connor is set to make a long-awaited return to the squad when they face AFC Wimbledon.

The 30-year-old has been sidelined since his play-off final goal against Wrexham back in May due to a groin injury but he has trained all week and is expected to be involved, most likely on the bench, against the Dons.

Fellow forward Danny Crow misses out with a back problem while Jamie Stephens, Ismail Yakubu and Byron Anthony are all out for the season.

Adam Chapman also returns having served his three-match ban for a red card against Portsmouth but might have to make do with a place on the Exiles' bench.
