Rowan Vine will make his final appearance for MK Dons.

Vine is at the end of his 93-day emergency loan from QPR so will hope to add to his solitary goal for the club.

Defender Danny Woodards came off after 39 minutes of the recent home win over Carlisle with a hamstring strain and he will miss out again so Mat Doumbe will continue to fill in at right-back.

Striker Sam Baldock and defender Gary MacKenzie both returned from ankle injuries against Swindon last weekend.

On-loan QPR forward Angelo Balanta is fit after being sidelined since November with an ankle injury and is pushing for a starting place as the Dons look to close the gap to the Terriers to just three points.

Huddersfield manager Lee Clark will choose from an unchanged squad.

Clark has no new injury or suspension problems but is still without first-choice goalkeeper Alex Smithies, winger Anthony Pilkington and defender Liam Ridehalgh.

Smithies has been sidelined since mid-March due to a knee injury, Pilkington's season was brought to a premature end when he suffered a horrific leg and ankle break last month against Rochdale and Ridehalgh is recovering from a broken bone in his foot.

Winger Aidan Chippendale has been recalled from his loan spell at York but is ineligible to feature on Saturday.

The Terriers are unbeaten in their last 21 league games but cannot afford to drop points in the race for automatic promotion. They are level on 77 points with second-placed Southampton, but Saints have a game in hand.
