Easter has missed the last two games with a thigh injury but returned to training on Thursday and could be back on the bench against Simon Grayson's men.

Ince has no other fresh injury concerns as his squad begins to return to full-strength after a nightmare start to the season.

Defender Danny Swailes (Achilles), midfielder Peter Leven (groin) and Aaron Wilbraham (ankle) have all been back in action in recent weeks after lengthy injury lay-offs but still remain short of match fitness and may again be left on the bench.

Defender Danny Woodards rolled his ankle in training this week to remain on the sidelines while Jude Stirling (groin) and Sean O'Hanlon (knee) remain long-term problems.

Forward Sam Baldock is away with the England Under-20s World Cup squad in Egypt and will be playing Uruguay when the Dons kick-off at stadium:mk.
