Striker Jabo Ibehre remains a doubt for MK Dons' clash with Oldham.
The former Walsall man missed out on the 1-0 win at Hartlepool on Saturday through the illness which forced him off at half-time against Leyton Orient last Tuesday.
He has made a return to training but is far from 100% fit and manager Karl Robinson will make a late decision about his inclusion.
Youngster Daniel Powell took his place at Hartlepool and, after netting the winner, will be hoping to start again, while full-back Danny Woodards has recovered from the same illness and is available.
Striker Sam Baldock is a week away from a return following his latest hamstring injury and on-loan QPR frontman Angelo Balanta remains sidelined with his ankle problem.
