Dons wait on Ibehre and Baldock
MK Dons boss Karl Robinson is hoping for a double striker boost ahead of the visit of league leaders Brighton.
Robinson saw his side draw a blank in the goalless draw at home to Oldham on Tuesday night but could welcome Jabo Ibehre and Sam Baldock to his squad against Gus Poyet's side.
Ibehre has missed the last two games with illness but is expected to be back in the fold, while Baldock remains a doubt.
Baldock has missed the last seven games after sustaining a hamstring injury last month but returned to training on Monday.
The club also received more positive news as on-loan QPR winger Angelo Balanta has stepped up his rehabilitation from ankle surgery, but Liverpool winger David Amoo has returned to Anfield after a loan spell.
Right-back Danny Woodards is a doubt with an ankle injury but Fulham youngster Keanu Marsh-Brown has extended his loan until the end of the season.
Radostin Kishishev could be added to the Brighton squad.
The Bulgarian veteran has not featured for Albion since January due to a back injury and then personal reasons, but he has resumed training and his fitness will be assessed ahead of the weekend.
Fellow midfielder Alan Navarro made a welcome return to full training with the rest of the first team on Thursday after six months out with a cruciate injury, although he will not be considered yet.
Left-back Jim McNulty (ankle) and midfielder Jamie Smith (foot) are still on the sidelines but boss Gus Poyet has no new injury problems.
Poyet could therefore stick with the side which thumped Plymouth 4-0 in midweek to move four points clear at the top.
Dons clip Seagulls` wings
Daniel Powell's first-half goal proved decisive as 10-man MK Dons held on to beat League One leaders Brighton 1-0.
Powell's 27th-minute tap-in ended the Seagulls' three-match winning run as the Dons survived a late onslaught after Sean O'Hanlon`s 67th-minute red card.
Dons winger Keanu Marsh-Brown was twice denied by keeper Casper Ankergren early on, first when his low shot was well saved after a mazy run and then when his fierce half-volley was acrobatically tipped over the bar.
But Powell deservedly put the Dons ahead just before the half-hour mark, slotting home the rebound from close range after O'Hanlon's header had come back off a post.
Powell drilled another effort narrowly wide soon after the break and Rowan Vine had a strong penalty appeal waved away after going down under a challenge from Marcos Painter.
Ankergren then superbly saved Stephen Gleeson's drive before Brighton striker Chris Wood was denied by a brilliant double save from Dons keeper David Martin, who saved his close-range header and then his follow-up attempt.
O'Hanlon received his second booking for a late tackle on Glenn Murray near the halfway line but the Dons hung on for their first win in five games at stadium:mk.
