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.
