Karl Robison has made just one change to his starting XI for today’s FA Cup with Budweiser fourth round clash against Queens Park Rangers.

The Dons head into the game with the same side who beat Sheffield Wednesday in the last round with the exception of Adam Chicksen, who steps in for the injured Daniel Powell.

Chicksen will take up the role on the left wing while Dean Bowditch, who scored in the third round 1-1 draw against QPR last season, moves to the right flank. Alan Smith is once again given free rein in the central role behind loan striker Ryan Lowe.

With Gary MacKenzie back to fitness Robinson has opted to keep the Scotsman alongside Antony Kay while Shaun Williams’ stint in central midfield with Darren Potter is extended.

Tom Flanagan, who has been out with a broken foot, makes a return to the first team fold as he is named on the bench, along with youngsters Dele Alli and Giorgio Rasulo.

QPR (4-4-2): Green; Fabio, Ferdinand, Ben Haim, Traore; Mackie, Fairlin, Granero, Park; Campbell, Bothroyd.

Subs: Murphy (GK), Derry, Hill, Onuoha, Ephraim, Zamora, Mbia.

MK Dons (4-2-3-1): Martin; Otsemobor, MacKenzie, Kay, Lewington (c); Potter, Williams; Bowditch, Smith, Chicksen; Lowe.

Subs: Kouo-Doumbe, Flanagan, Harley, Alli, Lines, Rasulo, Ismail.
