MK Dons manager Karl Robinson will be without Peter Leven and Mat Doumbe for his first game in full charge at Walsall.
Leven and Doumbe must serve suspensions, a legacy from the club`s woeful disciplinary record last season which saw them collect over 120 bookings.
Defender Gary MacKenzie will have to wait for his debut as he suffers the effects of picking up a knock in training but four other players are vying for their first appearance.
Robinson, 29, could hand debuts to goalkeeper David Martin, veteran midfielder Dietmar Hamann and forwards Lewis Guy and Angelo Balanta.
Defender Sean O`Hanlon was withdrawn from a friendly last week as a precaution after feeling a twinge in his back but should be fit.
