In an ideal world AFC Wimbledon will be able to secure the future of Michael Smith until the end of the season, at least.

The Charlton strikers loan expires after the New Years Day game and as it stands he’ll be going back to the Valley.

Charlton boss Chris Powell had already mentioned that he planned to bring the striker back to the club and take a look at him in training before deciding his next move, but he would get a fair crack of the whip upon his return.

Neal Ardley still wants him to stay with Wimbledon and in the wake of his goalscoring display against Plymouth he again reiterated these thoughts and will talk with Powell and Charlton some more.

He said: ‘He’ll be going back after the Dagenham game on New Year’s Day.

‘I’ve spoken to Smudger and I’ve spoken to Chris so we’re well aware of how it’s all going.

‘In the initial week to 10 days he’ll be back training with them and then there will be a lot decided. Chris likes him and there will be a conversation between them and if there is a chance that he’ll be part of Charlton’s plans then good luck to him.’

I think that 10-days is enough for all concerned to know what the score will be with Smith, who all being well will stay at Kingsmeadow until the end of the season.
