Collins set to join Dons

Last Updated: Thu, 20 Feb 2014 13:20

Scunthorpe captain Michael Collins has agreed to join AFC Wimbledon on loan until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old midfielder, who has had another stop-start season at Glanford Park due to injury, has struggled to win back a place in Russ Wilcox's starting line-up.

Collins played the first five games of the current season after missing most of the 2012/13 campaign due to a career-threatening Achilles injury, but sustained knee ligament damage in August.

He returned to the starting line-up in November for the FA Cup first-round clash at Grimsby, but has since been in and out of the squad, with his last six first-team appearances coming off the bench.

Scunthorpe have a recall clause after the first 28 days.
