Fears over the seriousness of an injury to AFC Wimledon striker Paul McCallum have been unfounded, says coach Simon Bassey.

McCallum, on loan from West Ham United, had bagged four goals in three League Two games for the Dons before limping off in the 2-2 draw with Port Vale on Thursday.

Bassey revealed the 19-year-old had taken a heavy blow to the top of his foot, but x-rays since then have not revealed anything beyond heavy bruising.

"It's not as serious as we thought. Nothing showed up on the x-ray although it was quite swollen and looked sore," Bassey said.

"Paul spends the first part of the week West Ham, so we're hoping he will be back with us on Thursday and feeling a lot better."
