Team news for Friday's FA Cup first-round clash between AFC Wimbledon and Coventry City at Kingsmeadow.

The Dons will have loan stars Michael Smith and George Porter available when they host Sky Blues in the FA Cup.

Charlton striker Smith, the Dons' top scorer this season with six goals, and Burnley winger Porter have been given permission to play in the competition by their parent clubs.

It means boss Neal Ardley has a full-strength squad available apart from long-term absentees Chris Arthur and Will Antwi.

Winger Arthur has an ankle injury and defender Antwi is recovering from hernia surgery.

Cyrus Christie is likely to return to Coventry's starting line-up for Friday night's FA Cup first-round tie at AFC Wimbledon.

The right-back came back from an ankle injury to take his place on the bench as an unused substitute in last weekend's 3-0 win over Notts County.

Midfielder John Fleck picked up his fifth booking of the season against the Magpies and so serves an automatic one-match suspension, meaning Adam Barton is set to come in.

Defender Jordan Willis (knee) misses out again, forward Billy Daniels is not yet 100 per cent following his hernia operation while loanee Jamar Loza has been denied permission to feature by parent club Norwich.
