Stephen Gleeson is amongst the substitutes for tonight’s clash between MK Dons and Doncaster Rovers, having been out of action since December.
Gleeson, who suffered a broken foot prior to the postponed fixture between Karl Robinson’s side and the Rovers three months ago, is been deemed fit enough to start on the bench having returned to full training last week.
Elsewhere, Ian McLoughlin once again deputises for the injured David Martin while Dean Bowditch makes a return to the starting XI after coming on as a substitute last Saturday, in his first match back since picking up a knock in the FA Cup with Budweiser defeat to Barnsley.
Bowditch’s inclusion causes Jon Otsemobor to miss out, meaning last weekend’s goalscorer Adam Chicksen moves into right-back alongside Antony Kay, Shaun Williams and Dean Lewington. Darren Potter and Chris Lines continue as the Dons’ midfield pairing, behind an attacking trio of Daniel Powell, Luke Chadwick and Bowditch with Ryan Lowe as the lone striker.
Along with Gleeson, there are five other replacements available to manager Robinson, including Mathias Kouo-Doumbe, Izale McLeod, Tom Flanagan, George Baldock and youngster Giorgio Rasulo.
MK Dons (4-2-3-1): McLoughlin; Chicksen, Kay, Williams, Lewington (c); Potter, Lines; Powell, Chadwick, Bowditch; Lowe.
Subs: Kouo-Doumbe, Gleeson, McLeod, Flanagan, Baldock, Rasulo.
Doncaster Rovers (4-4-2): Woods; Quinn, McCombe, Jones (c), Spurr; Cotterill, Harper, Lundstram, Husband; Coppinger, Hume.
