Dons expect to have teenage midfielder Dele Alli available for selection when Bradford visit.
Alli has been out since September with a foot injury but the 17-year-old played for 45 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly this week and could be on the bench on Saturday. Ben Reeves also played in that game and is back in contention after a knock.
Aston Villa loanee Samir Carruthers is another to come back into the reckoning having been ineligible for the FA Cup tie against FC Halifax two weeks ago, with the Dons’ league fixture against Oldham postponed last weekend.
On-loan defender Jordan Spence will play the last game of his one-month stay while goalkeeper David Martin (calf) and winger Luke Chadwick (foot) are doubts.
Bradford manager Phil Parkinson, meanwhile, will select his side from an unchanged squad but may consider one or two changes at MK Dons.
Parkinson has no new injury or suspension problems as the Bantams chase their first win in six league matches, but wingers Raffaele De Vita and Mark Yeates are both pushing for recalls.
Andrew Davies remains sidelined with a knee injury, so Matthew Bates is expected to retain his place alongside Rory McArdle at the heart of defence.
Strikers James Hanson and leading goalscorer Nahki Wells will resume up front, the latter’s hat-trick in Sunday’s 3-3 draw with Coventry taking his tally for the season to 12.
