MK Dons remain without striker Aaron Wilbraham for the visit of Bournemouth.
Wilbraham was sent off during the defeat at Paul Ince's Notts County over a fortnight ago and is still waiting to serve a one-match suspension after a run of postponements.
On-loan QPR striker Angelo Balanta will be out of action until March with an ankle injury and joint top scorer Sam Baldock remains sidelined. The striker has scored five league goals this season but is still out with an injured ankle sustained against Sheffield Wednesday.
Utility player Jude Stirling is nearing a return to action after a groin strain but will not make the squad. Defender Sean O'Hanlon may make the bench after some improvement in the condition of a stomach muscle injury.
Striker Jemal Johnson and midfielder Adam Chicksen had missed training through illness but look to have recovered in time.
