AFC Wimbledon will take action against Daniel Webb after his horror tackle on Maidstone United's Conor Hagan at the weekend.

With the Dons 2-1 ahead after 25 minutes thanks to a Mark De Bolla penalty and Tony Finn's strike, the striker launched into a two-footed lunge on Hagan and was promptly given his marching orders.

Despite seeing his team hold on for a 2-1 victory, manager Terry Brown has read the riot act to the former Southend frontman, who now faces internal club punishment in addition to his three-match ban.

Brown frowns of any lack of discipline from his players, and criticised his team after a pre-season friendly clash with Blue Square Premier side Woking descended into a melee.

The Dons boss said: "Webb knows how I feel about the tackle.

"It meant we had to play for the final hour with 10 men. The tackle was reckless and unneccessary.

"I don't expect any of my players to behave like that."

Brown has urged Webb to look at the example set by skipper Jason Goodliffe and veteran midfielder Rob Quinn.

"The likes of Jason and Rob are big guys and they know how to handle themselves," he said.

"But you don't see them flying into reckless challenges and getting themselves booked or sent off.

"If opposing sides see that they can get to us by getting in our faces or using overtly rough tactics, then all our opponents will do that.

"We have got the a squad of very good footballers and we don't need to get involved with things like that.

"We just have to let our football do the talking."

Webb's impending suspension adds to Brown's absentee concerns.

Marcus Gayle, Luke Garrard, Jake Leberl, Quinn and Karl Beckford are all on the injury list, which has meant starts for youngster Will Salmon and the recall of fellow fullback Chris Hussey from a loan spell at Windsor & Eton.

It has tested the depth of the Dons squad, but Brown has been pleased with their response.

He added: "Our injury situation is poor, but that has seen the likes of Salmon and Sam Hatton get some action and I have been delighted with them.

"You always pick up injuries so it is vital to have a squad big enough to cope."

AFC Wimbledon continue on the road to Wembley when they visit Tonbridge Angels in the FA Trophy second round on Saturday.
