Team News: Crawley Town

26 December 2013

Karl Robinson names an unchanged starting XI for the third game in a row, for today's Boxing Day with Crawley Town.

The Dons boss sticks with the same 11 players which have seen off Wolverhampton Wanderers and Port Vale in recent weeks, which means defender Antony Kay still has to wait for his first League start since September.

Kay is once again on the bench for the Dons with Jordan Spence and Shaun Williams continuing as the centre-back pairing in-between Lee Hodson and Dean Lewington. David Martin is in goal.

Elsewhere, Stephen Gleeson and Darren Potter remain as the two central midfielders behind an attacking trio of Dale Jennings, Samir Carruthers and Ben Reeves, who has scored in each of his last three games. Reeves will occupy the 'number 10' role behind Chelsea loanee Patrick Bamford.

Among the substitutes today for the Dons  is youngster Brendan Galloway; he will join Ian McLoughlin, Tom Flanagan, Alan Smith, George Baldock, Jason Banton and Kay on the bench.

Crawley Town: P Jones, Hurst, Sadler, Connolly, Walsh, M Jones, Bulman, Drury, Adams, Clarke, Alexander.

Subs: Maddison (GK), Essam, Torres, Proctor, Sinclair, Smith, Malins.

MK Dons (4-2-3-1): Martin; Hodson, Spence, Williams, Lewington (c); Potter, Gleeson; Carruthers, Reeves, Jennings; Bamford.

Subs: McLoughlin (GK), Flanagan, Smith, Baldock, Galloway, Banton, Kay.
