Iron boss Russ Wilcox is set to call upon the knowledge of loan export Michael Collins ahead of United’s meeting with Cheltenham Town on Tuesday night.Having joined AFC Wimbledon on a temporary deal in February, the 27-year-old midfielder has become a regular at Kingsmeadow – featuring seven times to date.
His latest appearance came during Wimbledon’s dramatic 4-3 victory over Cheltenham on Saturday, playing 67 minutes as the Robins were consigned to a last minute defeat courtesy of Jack Midson’s late strike.
That makes Collins a prime candidate to offer an insight on how the Gloucestershire outfit are likely to approach the game, and Wilcox told The Iron Player: “I’ve just dropped him [Collins] a text now.
“I’ve had no reply yet as he’s probably still on the training ground, but I’ll get Mickey’s thoughts about their set-up. We’ve obviously got a scout there anyway doing a report, but it’s nice to get some extra information.
“It’s a different approach, and a different view. It gives me a good idea too, coming from a player. Sometimes scouts will have a different take on the game from players, so it’s a big positive for us knowing Mickey’s feedback.”
