Team News: Rotherham United

19 October 2013

Goalkeeper David Martin returns from injury for the Dons while midfielder Ben Reeves is handed a start in place of the injured Luke Chadwick.

Martin starts in goal for the first time since the trip to Gillingham having missed the past two weeks with a calf injury sustained during that defeat. Ian McLoughlin, who deputised in Martin’s absence, drops to the bench.

Meanwhile Reeves, who has only made one League start for the Dons since joining from Southampton in the summer, will occupy the number 10 role left vacant by Chadwick, who is ruled with a foot injury picked up in last week’s loss to Leyton Orient.

Dons boss Robinson’s final change to the side is the recall of winger Jason Banton in place of Samir Carruthers. Banton has not started a game for the Dons since the 1-1 draw with Swindon Town in early September.

Despite the trio of changes, the Dons’ back-four, central midfield pairing and lone striker remain the same with Jon Otsemobor keeping his place at right-back over the returning Lee Hodson and Daniel Powell continuing on the right wing.

On the bench for Robinson’s side this afternoon are McLoughlin, Hodson, Carruthers, Alan Smith, Izale McLeod, George Baldock and Brendan Galloway.

Antony Kay (hip), Dean Bowditch (hip), Dele Alli (ankle) and Chadwick (foot) all miss out through injury.
