MK Dons midfielder Peter Leven is back in the frame for the visit of promotion rivals Peterborough.

The Scot has missed the last two matches through suspension after collecting 10 yellow cards this season but is available for manager Karl Robinson.

Centre-back Gary MacKenzie came off in the second half of the 3-1 win at Colchester last weekend with an ankle injury but could be fit, with Sean O'Hanlon on hand if needed.

Goalkeeper David Martin picked up an ankle injury in the warm-up at Colchester and will continue to be assessed so reserve Stuart Searle could be handed a second straight start.

On-loan Fulham midfielder Keanu Marsh-Brown (groin) is fit again and the club is still seeking clearance from FIFA for new signing Shaun Williams to feature.

QPR forward Angelo Balanta was back on the bench last week after several months out with an ankle injury and could feature.

Craig Mackail-Smith is expected to lead the line once more for Peterborough at MK Dons.

The prolific striker is wanted by Norwich but the clubs have been unable to agree a deal and manager Darren Ferguson plans to start him at stadium:mk.

Posh are flying under Ferguson and thumped Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 last Tuesday night so the manager may name an unchanged side.

Midfielder Lee Frecklington has had a hernia operation and will be sidelined for at least a month while new signing Paul Taylor will not feature as he is not match fit.

Striker Dave Hibbert is absent as he steps up his comeback from a dislocated knee suffered back in November.
