Milton Keynes Dons Vs Charlton Athletic, Sat 3 Apr 2010

Published Add your comment

MK Dons striker Sam Baldock is hopeful of making a return when Charlton come to stadium:mk.

The forward has missed the last 10 games with a knee injury but took part in training on Thursday and could be on the bench against the Addicks.

His return would be a major boost to Paul Ince's side who are short of attacking options.

Ince has no other injury concerns after the return to fitness of defender Sean O'Hanlon and the centre-half could make his first start since April 2009 after replacing James Tunnicliffe at half-time of last weekend's 2-2 draw at Gillingham.

The Dons have gone three games without a win since beating Swindon at the start of March and look set to miss out on a place in the League One play-offs.

Nicky Bailey and Deon Burton face late fitness checks ahead of Charlton's trip.

Skipper Bailey missed a rare game last weekend, the 1-1 draw at Huddersfield, after picking up an ankle injury in training the day before.

The midfielder has had an injection in the ankle and Charlton will wait to see how it settles before making a decision.

Striker Burton has also undergone a jab in a bid to recover from a knee injury in time for the Easter programme.

Goalkeeper Rob Elliot is still out with a groin injury so Darren Randolph keeps the gloves.

Defenders Kelly Youga (knee) and Grant Basey (ankle) and forward Leon McKenzie (thigh) remain on the sidelines.
