Match Preview

As you were for Dons MK Dons have injury concerns for the visit of in-form Huddersfield. Manager Karl Robinson did not name the players who could miss the game but there are known to be several nursing knocks following a bruising encounter against Sheffield Wednesday last weekend. The Milton Keynes club have sent a dossier of video evidence to the Football Association in an effort to highlight what Robinson labelled `horrific` tackles made on his players at Hillsborough. Stephen Gleeson and Darren Potter are likely to be doubts after they were involved in challenges which, Robinson claimed, threatened their careers. One player certain to be absent is Jabo Ibehre after he was sent off against the Owls. The striker will serve a one-match suspension. Huddersfield arrive at stadium:mk on a 33-game unbeaten run in League One. Scotland international Gary Naysmith is hoping to return to Huddersfield's squad. The 32-year-old left-back missed the midweek win at Sheffield United due to an unspecified knock, but is back in contention as the Terriers bid to extend their unbeaten league run to 34 matches. Manager Lee Clark has a full-strength first-team squad to choose from apart from goalkeeper Alex Smithies, who remains a long-term absentee following knee surgery. Clark is not expected to make too many, if any, changes after his side turned in arguably their best display of the season in the 3-0 at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night. Striker Lee Novak's double took his goal tally for the season to seven and he can expect to lead the line again, with Jordan Rhodes pushing for a recall along with winger Gary Roberts, midfielder Anton Robinson and skipper Peter Clarke, who has been unable to force his way back into the side following a back injury.

Match Report

Town pay penalty as Dons hold on Lee Novak missed an 87th-minute penalty as Huddersfield were held 1-1 by 10-man MK Dons. Dons skipper Dean Lewington had cancelled out Scott Arfield's first-half opener before Novak's late spot-kick was saved by David Martin, after Gary MacKenzie had seen red for violent conduct. The Dons started brightly and Shaun Williams had a fierce 25-yard strike pushed over the bar by Ian Bennett before Dean Bowditch saw his deflected shot flash past the post after a slick passing move. But Huddersfield seized control and Arfield put them ahead after 37 minutes, slotting in the rebound after Alan Lee's header had come back off the foot of the post from Jack Hunt's cross. The Dons piled forward after the break and Lewington equalised in the 65th minute from a Bowditch corner, ramming in the rebound after MacKenzie's header had been parried by Bennett. Huddersfield substitute Gary Roberts then had a shot cleared off the line by Luke Chadwick before Novak's late penalty miss, which came after MacKenzie had been shown a straight red card for lashing out at Lee in the box.
