Milton Keynes Dons V Yeovil - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.

No worries for Dons MK Dons have a fully-fit squad as they prepare to host Yeovil. Jimmy Bullard missed the 1-0 defeat at Walsall last weekend with a dead leg he sustained on his full debut against Northampton in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy but the midfielder has now recovered. Defender Gary MacKenzie (Scotland) and back-up goalkeeper Ian McLoughlin (Republic of Ireland Under-21s) have returned from international duty unscathed. MacKenzie was an ever-present prior to missing the Northampton and Walsall games due to his call up and the former Rangers trainee should slot straight back into the team at centre-half. Fit-again Mathias Kouo-Doumbe and fellow defender Adam Chicksen, midfielders Alan Smith and James O'Shea and strikers Charlie MacDonald and Jabo Ibehre are available for recalls should manager Karl Robinson wish to make any further changes. Yeovil boss Gary Johnson could welcome back Gavin Williams. Williams returned to training this week after an injection in a calf muscle but faces a late test. Defender Byron Webster successfully negotiated 90 minutes against Bournemouth last weekend despite struggling to breathe in his previous outing and should retain his place. Johnson is relieved to be heading into the fixture after an extended rest period, admitting his side may have been short of fitness had they completed another midweek clash. "There are always little niggles and knocks that people get when they are playing Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday," he told the Western Morning News. "We've had a few more days, which is nice, and if we'd had a game on Tuesday we would have had a few struggling. We've got a game on Saturday where we should have a fitter bill of health."
