Caretaker boss Neil MacFarlane could hand a Coventry debut to loan signing Nick Proschwitz against MK Dons.
The striker has joined until the end of the season from Brentford despite the Sky Blues being without a manager after Steven Pressley’s exit on Monday.
Frank Nouble and Samni Odelusi are doubts with hamstring injuries having just returned to light training.
Lee Burge will also be in goal for the Sky Blues.
Lewis Baker is expected to make his Dons debut at the Ricoh Arena.
The midfielder moved to the Milton Keynes club this week on loan from Chelsea and could slot into the role vacated by the injured Dele Alli, who will be out for around another month or so.
Goalkeeper David Martin continues to be monitored after missing the last three matches with a thigh strain. If Saturday comes too soon for him then Ian McLoughlin will continue between the posts.
Forward Dean Bowditch will remain sidelined with a hamstring injury.
