Robbie Neilson considering changes for MK Dons' FA Cup replay against Charlton

MK Dons boss Robbie Neilson could shuffle his pack once again as he goes head to head with predecessor Karl Robinson in an FA Cup second-round replay.

Having made nine changes for his first game in charge, a Checkatrade trophy defeat at Yeovil, Neilson made nine more for Saturday's 1-0 League One win over AFC Wimbledon.

Central defender Joe Walsh missed out at the weekend with an ankle injury and was replaced by the experienced Dean Lewington as he stepped inside from his usual left-back spot, while striker Nicky Maynard missed out with a hamstring problem.

But should Neilson opt for change once again, midfielders Ryan Colclough, Daniel Powell and Chuks Aneke are among those who may be included.

Robinson is yet to taste victory during his fledgling reign as Charlton manager, but he has not lost either.

He saw his side draw 0-0 at Bradford on Saturday despite injury and illness severely depleting his squad, and he will make checks before naming his team.

Defender Morgan Fox and striker Ademola Lookman did not travel because of a virus which had earlier affected starters Nicky Ajose, Lee Novak, Josh Magennis and Patrick Bauer, while Jason Pearce suffered a groin injury within minutes of kick-off.

Bauer will miss out through suspension at Stadium MK after being sent off in the dying minutes in West Yorkshire.
