AFC Wimbledon boss Johnnie Jackson said George Marsh showed he was ready to be called upon with his performance from the bench in Tuesday’s 3-2 defeat at home to Stevenage.
Marsh replaced Lee Brown in the 27th minute after the former Portsmouth defender suffered a hamstring injury.
The 24-year-old midfielder by trade, who joined the Dons last summer under Mark Robinson after leaving Tottenham, played at right-back against Steve Eveans’ side, with Chris Gunter switching to left-back.
The South London Press understands that talks have yet to be opened with Marsh about a contract extension at Plough Lane. Our paper also understands that a club pushing for the play-offs in the National League recently enquired about the former Spurs youngster.
Marsh has featured 53 times in all competitions since he joined the Dons.
“Fair play to the lad,” Jackson said about Marsh’s performance against Stevenage on Tuesday evening.
“He’s not had a lot of game time recently, but what he has done is train really well and really hard.
“We knew that if we needed to call upon him, he would be ready. He showed that.”
