MK Dons manager Karl Robinson has hinted at a recall for Luke Chadwick ahead of the visit of Bristol City.

Chadwick has not started a game since the opening day of the season but the experienced former Manchester United winger is expected to return to the team on Saturday.

Ben Reeves will not feature due to an injury which forced him out of the starting XI last weekend. The midfielder, who played at left-back in the home win over Crewe, was deemed fit enough for the bench at Preston but he will miss the Robins game.

Captain Dean Lewington (knee) and forwards Dean Bowditch (groin) and Daniel Powell (ankle) will remain on the sidelines. Lewington, whose troublesome injury has limited him to just one appearance this season, took part in light training on Thursday but the League One fixture will come too soon for him to be considered.

Bristol City head coach Sean O'Driscoll has no fresh injury worries as his side tackle MK Dons looking for their first league win of the season.

The Robins lost 2-1 to Wolves last weekend to extend their winless run in this division to three games but O'Driscoll's preparations have been helped by the lack of new fitness concerns.

Louis Carey is back in training once more after recovering from his dead leg and Sam Baldock looks set to start against his former employees.

Defenders Nicky Shorey and James O'Connor continue to train with the club but both will not be involved at Stadium:MK.
