Football - Dons sweating on Bamford

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson is hoping Patrick Bamford will be fit enough to feature in their meeting against struggling Hartlepool.


The teenage striker, who joined the Dons on loan from Chelsea last month, is currently with his parent club receiving treatment on a hamstring problem.

The injury has ruled Bamford out of his last two matches but Robinson remains hopeful he will link up with them again before the weekend.

Midfielder Daniel Powell returned for last Saturday's defeat to Brentford after recovering from a hamstring problem but had to settle for a place on the bench.

Powell is back in contention for a starting role at stadium:mk as Robinson looks to bounce back from their first loss since October.
