MK Dons v Stevenage preview

MK Dons will be without Michael McIndoe for the FA Cup replay.
The winger signed on loan from Coventry on Friday and played a major part in the 2-0 win at Brentford at the weekend but is unavailable as he was not with the Dons at the time of the original cup tie 10 days ago.
Defender Gary MacKenzie is available after he completed his three-match ban but fellow centre-half Sean O’Hanlon is still out with his stomach muscle injury.
Dietmar Hamann has recovered from a recent illness but is unlikely to play as he curbs his time on the pitch following his promotion to first-team coach while reserve goalkeeper Stuart Searle has recovered from a hand injury.
Strikers Jermaine Easter (thigh) and Aaron Wilbraham (back) are still out but Jabo Ibehre is fit after a knee injury. Jude Stirling remains a long-term casualty with a groin injury.
Stevenage manager Graham Westley is hoping Chris Holroyd will be available.
Holroyd missed the first meeting between the sides after parent club Brighton refused him permission to play but Westley is trying to come to an arrangement with the Seagulls that allows the striker to continue up front. If Holroyd is blocked from playing, Stacy Long could be recalled.
Joel Byrom returned to the bench following an eye injury on Saturday and could be given a starting role while Luke Foster will also be looking for a promotion from the bench.
Westley is without long-term absentees Lee Boylan (calf) and Darren Murphy (ankle) while Chris Beardsley is close to a return to full training after a shoulder problem but the FA Cup replay is likely to come too soon for the striker.
