Karl Robinson expects to welcome back Gary MacKenzie for this crucial clash.
The centre-back missed the Dons' final-day defeat to Walsall through illness but should be fit for selection.
Luke Chadwick picked up a knock in that fixture after replacing Adam Chicksen but is also expected to recover in time.
Defender Mathias Doumbe has missed several games through injury recently and could remain sidelined.
Leading scorer Dean Bowditch is fit and is set to lead the line with Charlie MacDonald.
Former Leeds striker Alan Smith, currently on-loan from Newcastle, is also fit and is likely to keep his place behind the front men.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes is expected to return to the starting line-up.
Rhodes, who has scored 38 goals in all competitions this season, has been rested in Town's last two matches after manager Simon Grayson said he had appeared jaded.
Kallum Higginbotham has started alongside Lee Novak in his absence, but Rhodes stepped off the substitutes' bench for the last quarter of an hour in Town's final game of the regular season against Yeovil.
Fellow striker Alan Lee, also rested in the last two games after recovering from a knee injury, will return to contention, leaving Grayson with a dilemma as to who to start with up front at stadiummk.
Midfielder Anton Robinson, winger Gary Roberts and defender Tom Clarke are all pushing for recalls, while Grayson can call on defenders Nathan Clarke, Liam Ridehalgh and Murray Wallace, plus midfielder Matt Crooks following their return from respective loan spells.
Grayson, bidding for his third promotion from League One, has no new injury or suspension problems.
