AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley has strengthened his squad ahead of this weekend's trip to Dagenham.

Ardley reacted to Toby Ajala's return to parent club Bristol City by loaning in Brighton's Brennan Dickenson and Cardiff's Jesse Darko on Friday to boost his attacking options.

The Dons' manager believes that the pair, both 19-years-old, will give his side greater quality in the final third.

"Brennan is direct and can play on the wing, which is what we need with Toby Ajala having left," Ardley told the club website.

"Jesse is very quick, has good movement and he works incredibly hard along the front line.

"Importantly, he understands what I want the team to do and how I like us to press, so I do not think it will take him long to fit in."

Both players will be eligible for Saturday's fixture against John Still's men.
