Stevenage v MK Dons preview

Stevenage manager Graham Westley has no new injury concerns.
John Mousinho will continue to be Boro’s playmaker after his brace against Barnet on Tuesday sealed the three points and Ben May is likely to keep his place up front.
May made his first start for Stevenage in the win at Underhill, although he is lacking match fitness after a back operation which kept him on the sidelines for some time, he will continue to lead the line with on-loan striker Chris Holroyd.
Defender Luke Foster is pushing for a start after returning to the bench following a one-match suspension while Westley will have to make do with four long-term absentees.
Joel Byrom (fractured eye socket), Lee Boylan (calf), Chris Beardsley (shoulder) and Darren Murphy (ankle) are not expected to be available any time soon.
MK Dons boss Karl Robinson could again be down the bare bones for the short trip to Stevenage in the FA Cup first round.
Robinson could only name four substitutes for the midweek win over Yeovil after a sickness bug decimated the squad but is hopeful of having some bodies back for the cup clash.
Goalkeeper David Martin, Danny Woodards and Aaron Wilbraham all missed the game due to sickness while Sean O’Hanlon, Lewis Guy, Jermaine Easter and Dietmar Hamann played some part but were not 100% fit and healthy.
Robinson will also be without defender Gary MacKenzie, who will serve the second of his three-match ban, but Angelo Balanta is back from suspension.
Striker Jabo Ibehre jarred his knee in training last Friday and is not fit.
