MK Dons look like being without midfielder Stephen Gleeson for the visit of Swindon.

Gleeson missed the 1-0 win over Leyton Orient on Saturday after injuring his ankle in training on Friday and is a doubt to be fit for Paul Ince`s side.

However his replacement Mark Carrington scored the only goal of the game against Orient and is in line to keep his place.

Winger Andros Townsend was recalled by parent club Tottenham at the weekend and was on the bench for the FA Cup quarter-final at Fulham but Ince is trying to negotiate his return and he has an outside chance of being available.

Defender Mat Doumbe was on the bench on Saturday after seven games out with a groin strain but Darren Powell and Sam Baldock (both knee) remain sidelined.

Swindon have no fresh injury or suspension concerns to contend with as they look to get their bid for promotion back on track.

The Robins suffered a humiliating 4-0 home defeat at the hands of Bristol Rovers on Saturday and will be keen to avoid any further slip-ups if they are to maintain their position in the League One play-off places.

Kevin Amankwaah will be hoping to keep his place in the starting XI after recovering from a hamstring strain to play the full 90 minutes against Rovers.

But long-term absentee Alan O'Brien is still several weeks away from a return after rupturing his hamstring again during a reserve game last week.

Callum Kennedy (pelvis) is still on the comeback trail and should be back in training in a few weeks, but Kurt Hammonds will not play again this season as he continues his recovery from a second knee operation.
