Danny Green will miss MK Dons’ FA Cup clash against Chesterfield through suspension.
Green was sent off in injury-time at the end of the league win at Sheffield United in midweek and the winger will serve a one-match ban on Saturday.
Captain Dean Lewington has missed the last three games through injury and the experienced left-back remains a doubt.
Having been rested at Bramall Lane, there is a strong possibility that Dons’ 18-goal top scorer Benik Afobe could be restored to the starting line-up against the Spireites.
Chesterfield will check on captain Ian Evatt.
Evatt was forced off with a head injury early in the second half of the 1-1 draw at Crawley last weekend. With Sam Hird not yet fully recovered from his knee injury, on-loan Wolves defender Georg Margreitter will replace Evatt should the 33-year-old miss out.
Daniel Jones will definitely be absent after his red card against the Red Devils. The left-back will begin a three-match suspension, so PFA chairman Ritchie Humphreys may make his first start since September 20.
Like Hird, Drew Talbot is edging nearer a return after his spell out with a groin problem but the second round tie in Milton Keynes will come too soon for the right-back.
