AFC Wimbledon's on-loan defender Karleigh Osborne is likely to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury he suffered in training last week.

The 27-year-old centre-back has played 25 times for the Dons since joining on a season-long loan from Bristol City.

"Unfortunately, the injury is worse than we first anticipated and it looks like he will not play during the run-in," Dons boss Neal Ardley said.external-link

"He needs to have another MRI scan to confirm the extent of the damage."

Wimbledon are currently 10th in League Two, three points off the play-off places.
