Gary MacKenzie is a doubt for MK Dons' home game with Notts County.

The defender returned to the side against Yeovil on Saturday after time away on international duty with the Scotland squad, but the centre-back's comeback lasted just 11 minutes before he suffered a dead leg.

MacKenzie is rated at 50/50 for Tuesday night and will continue to be assessed. Antony Kay replaced the Scot at the weekend and he is likely to come into the starting line-up should MacKenzie miss out.

Everyone else is available to manager Karl Robinson with defender Adam Chicksen, also an option should MacKenzie be absent, midfielders Alan Smith, Jimmy Bullard and James O'Shea and striker Charlie MacDonald hoping to force their way into Robinson's thinking.

Notts County are expected to be without Andre Boucaud.

Boucaud was shown a straight red card after only 22 minutes of the Magpies' 2-2 draw at Oldham on Saturday, meaning an automatic three-match suspension will have to be served by the midfielder.

However, manager Keith Curle has hinted he could appeal against the sending off - a subject he remained tight-lipped about during his pre-match press conference on Monday afternoon.

Curle may make changes after seeing his side battle with 10 men for almost 70 minutes at the weekend.

Full-back Alan Sheehan (hamstring) and midfielder Jeff Hughes could come back into the reckoning after injuries, with Joss Labadie, Hamza Bencherif and Jamal Campbell-Ryce also pushing for starts.

Notts will beat a 41-year-old club record of 10 away league games unbeaten if they avoid defeat at stadium:mk.
