MK Dons could be without highly-rated teenager Callum Brittain for the home clash with Walsall but Aaron Tshibola returns from suspension.
Defender Brittain, named EFL Young Player of the Month for September and linked with a move to Chelsea and Tottenham, was forced off through injury in the first half of Saturday's defeat to Portsmouth.
Midfielder Tshibola has served a one-game suspension and comes back into contention.
Goalkeeper Lee Nicholls also sustained a first-half injury against Pompey but carried on and should be fit.
Under-fire Walsall boss Jon Whitney could ring the changes.
Whitney has been criticised by the club's fans after a run of only one win in eight league games and that may prompt him to turn to his fringe players.
Forward Tyler Roberts is pushing for a start while experienced midfielder Adam Chambers and youngster Liam Kinsella are among Whitney's other options.
Walsall are three points above the relegation zone following Saturday's 1-1 home draw with Blackpool.
