Townsend: Not in the squad

Townsend: Not in the squad

The winger made his Dons debut in the league victory at Hartlepool on Saturday after arriving on loan from Tottenham but he is cup-tied having played in the competition during a previous loan spell at Leyton Orient.

Midfielder Mark Randall, on loan from Arsenal, also made his debut against Hartlepool but can play at stadium:mk.

David McCracken returned from a calf injury at the weekend to play the full 90 minutes while fellow defender Jude Stirling was again in the squad following a groin problem and could be handed his first start of the season.

Manager Paul Ince, who won the trophy during his last spell in charge of the Dons, will name his strongest available side. Centre-half Sean O'Hanlon (knee) remains the only absentee.
