Swindon V Milton Keynes Dons at The County Ground : Match Preview

07 April 2017 08:34

No new worries for Swindon boss Luke Williams

Swindon head coach Luke Williams has no further injury concerns as his side look for a third win on the bounce.

Saturday's 1-0 win over Fleetwood gave the Robins renewed hope of securing Sky Bet League One survival, and they are expected to name a similar side when they host MK Dons.

Yaser Kasim remains out with a hip problem, while Jordan Stewart is expected to be sidelined for longer than expected.

Nathan Thompson and Ben Gladwin are carrying knocks but Williams expects the duo to be able to manage their respective injuries until the end of the season.

MK Dons boss Robbie Neilson has hinted he could give some of the club's youngsters a chance with their League One status almost certainly assured.

Defender Ben Tilney and midfielder Callum Brittain, who have both made a handful of league appearances this season, could be among the players to benefit, along with Giorgio Rasulo, Charlie Burns and Brandon Thomas-Asante.

The Dons, who are 11 points above the bottom four with five games remaining, will have defender George Williams back in contention after he sat out the midweek win at Charlton through suspension.

Lee Nicholls will continue to deputise in goal if David Martin fails to recover from the back injury which has kept him out of the last two games, while forwards Dean Bowditch, Kieran Agard and Nicky Maynard are pushing for recalls after being left on the bench at The Valley.
