Darel Russell remains Charlton's only absentee.

The on-loan Preston midfielder is still waiting to serve the final game of a three-match ban, for his sending-off against Sheffield United last month, after the Addicks' last two fixtures fell victim to the weather.

Top scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips should return to the squad after he was rested for the 1-1 draw against Bury in Charlton's last outing.

Manager Chris Powell instead gave Leon Clarke his full debut while another January signing, Danny Haynes, came on as a substitute.

Midfielder Dale Stephens came through his first 90 minutes since October against Bury after recovering from an ankle injury and should keep his place after hitting the late equaliser.

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson could name an unchanged side.

Dons saw their home game against Bury on Saturday postponed, but Robinson was poised to name the same team that started the 1-1 draw against Huddersfield the previous weekend.

On-loan Newcastle defender James Tavernier impressed on his debut at the Galpharm Stadium and will keep his place in the side.

Darren Potter returned from illness in West Yorkshire and the midfielder suffered no ill-effects after completing the full 90 minutes.

Mathias Kouo-Doumbe is available again following suspension while fellow defender Adam Chicksen could also return to the reckoning after requiring stitches in a head injury sustained against Sheffield Wednesday 13 days ago.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

...is that the draw for the next round is pretty shocking. Blackburn v Stoke, anybody? We also have mails on LVG and ManUnited, who drew plenty under Fergie...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
