MK Dons boss Karl Robinson is waiting on Ryan Harley.

On-loan winger Harley missed Saturday's 1-1 draw against Preston with a neck injury and faces a late fitness test.

Fellow midfielder Dean Bowditch returned to the squad after recovering from a groin problem but had to be content with a place on the bench.

Goalkeeper David Martin remains sidelined with a back problem while veteran midfielder Alan Smith serves the final game of his four-match ban.

Chelsea loanee Patrick Bamford remains at his parent club as he continues to receive treatment on a hamstring injury.

The Dons have drawn their last three matches in League One and are without a win since their famous FA Cup victory at QPR back in January.

Manager Brian Flynn could name an unchanged side.

The league leaders cruised past struggling Hartlepool 3-0 at the weekend and Flynn will be reluctant to make too many changes.

Midfielder Paul Keegan missed out with a dead leg and this one may also come too soon for him.

Billy Paynter is pushing for a starting role after the former Leeds striker scored the final goal from the bench against Pools.

Fellow forward Kyle Bennett is also hoping for inclusion having impressed as a substitute in recent weeks, while Emile Sinclair and Jordan Ball provide further options in attack.

Rovers are unbeaten in their last five league matches and could record a third straight win for the second time this year.
