Grant faces late fitness test

20 September 2012

Joel Grant faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday’s 125th anniversary game against AFC Wimbledon at Adams Park (k.o. 3pm).

Dean Morgan, who scored his first goal for the club at St James Park, is in line to make his home debut, while Leon Johnson is available again after serving a one-game suspension.

A tight hamstring forced Grant to be withdrawn after 84 minutes in Tuesday’s 3-2 defeat at Exeter City.  

Cardiff City loanee Elliot Parish will start between the sticks once again as Nikki Bull is still struggling with a thigh strain.

However, Matt Bloomfield hasn’t recovered from a groin problem in time for the fixture, but could be available for next Saturday’s trip to Dagenham & Redbridge.
