AFC Wimbledon have extended the loan deals for George Francomb and Dale Bennett by a further month.

Caretaker manager Simon Bassey is struggling with a defence ravaged by injury - Pim Balkestein, Mat Mitchel King and Curtis Haynes-Brown are either in treatment room or just returning to full training.

Francomb, on loan from Norwich City, has featured in all seven games since his arrival from Norfolk, while Watford centre back Bennett, who is himself returning from injury, has impressed during his loan spell.
