Dons missing McIndoe
MK Dons will be without Michael McIndoe for the visit of Tranmere.
The winger made eight appearances for the Dons but has been recalled by parent club Coventry so will not feature.
Manager Karl Robinson is also set to be without defender Sean O`Hanlon.
O`Hanlon missed the 1-1 draw with Exeter last week due to an ankle injury and has been sent for a scan on the problem.
Striker Jermaine Easter is back at the club after a loan spell at Swansea but may not feature as Crystal Palace are interested in signing him permanently, while utility man Jude Stirling is still to shake off a groin injury which has plagued his season.
On-loan QPR striker Angelo Balanta will be out of action until March with an ankle problem but Jabo Ibehre is pushing for a start after he came off the bench to score last week.
Tranmere defender Ian Goodison is missing after being been ruled out for several weeks with a knee problem.
The Jamaica international sustained the injury during last weekend's 3-3 draw at home to Walsall.
Rovers boss Les Parry has already lost defender Marlon Broomes to a calf injury this week, while Max Blanchard and Tim Cathalina are also missing.
Parry said: "Ian Goodison is going to be out for a few weeks as he has torn his medial ligaments on his knee.
"Marlon Broomes came back in on Monday and has torn a calf so he is out. So we've lost those two, and together with losing Max and Tim isn't going to do us any favours."
Jabo sinks Rovers
Jabo Ibehre scored his second goal in as many games as MK Dons brushed aside Tranmere 2-0 to climb into the play-off spots.
Second-half strikes from Daniel Powell and Ibehre handed Karl Robinson's men their third straight home win and ended struggling Rovers' mini-revival.
The Dons dominated from the start and Ibehre's overhead kick dropped narrowly over the crossbar before Lewis Guy fizzed a cross-shot just past the post after a neat one-two with Luke Chadwick.
Powell then had two shots cleared off the goal-line, the first by Mark McChrystal after rounding Rovers keeper Tony Warner and the second by Aaron Cresswell on the stroke of half-time.
But it was third time lucky for Powell as he fired the Dons ahead just 14 seconds after the restart, slamming home Ibehre's cut-back from the byline following Michael Kay's miscue.
Cresswell and John Welsh both forced Dons keeper David Martin into low saves with shots from distance as Tranmere battled back. But Dons forward Guy had a goal ruled out for offside before Ibehre sealed the win in the 70th minute, wriggling free of Ash Taylor in the box to drill a low shot past Warner.
