Notts County centre-back Haydn Hollis has a novel ideal about how to deal with the huge physical threat of AFC Wimbledon striker Adebayo Akinfenwa when the sides meet on Saturday.

The 16-stone centre-forward, known as 'The Beast', can bench press 28 stone.

But Hollis told BBC Radio Nottingham:external-link "I'll bench press him! You've not seen me in the gym. But I'm joking.

"He is is big and strong, but will he want to run us? We will probably keep a bit higher and keep him working."

Notts lie 18th in the League Two table, having won just two of their first six league games.

But they have a game in hand on every side except Crawley Town and won their last match 3-2 against Luton Town.
