Dons duo Brandan Wilkinson and Kieran Cross are set for a spell on the sidelines after sustaining injuries.

Wilkinson will be out for nine months after being informed he would require full knee surgery, following damage to his anterior cruciate ligament.

Hooker Kieran Cross has also been dealt an injury blow, and will be in a knee brace after damaging his posterior cruciate ligament, forcing him out of action for three months.

Dons chief executive Carl Hall said: “The club will be with both Brandan and Kieran all the way through their rehab process, this is devastating news for both players and our club.

“I am sure both players will come back bigger, stronger and faster from this as they are both very professional lads and will do everything right to get back on the field”.

Head coach Richard Horne added: “It’s tough to take losing both Brandan and Kieran, they’re great players and we will miss them while they are out.

“Myself and the club will continue to support the players throughout this time, and I wish them a speedy recovery, we now have to rally around as a squad and keep pushing on.”
