Norwich manager Paul Lambert will monitor the fitness of midfielder Wes Hoolahan and defender Gary Doherty ahead of the clash with MK Dons.

The pair missed the 2-1 home win over bottom-of-the-table Stockport on Easter Monday after sustaining a thigh strain and dead leg respectively in last Friday`s controversial 3-1 defeat at Tranmere.

On-loan Newcastle goalkeeper Fraser Forster completes his two-match suspension following his dismissal at Prenton Park so Declan Rudd will again deputise.

Striker Luke Daley (thigh) and Danish defender Jens Berthel Askou (foot) are the only other absentees.

The Canaries, nine points clear at the top, have won 15 of their last home 16 games and will be out for revenge after losing 2-1 at stadium:mk in September.

MK Dons manager Paul Ince has major selection issues ahead of the trip to Carrow Road.

Midfielder Stephen Gleeson injured his knee during the 1-0 defeat at Bristol Rovers on Easter Monday and has been ruled out for the rest of the season - though scans have shown that he should be back sooner than first expected.

Peter Leven would be first in line to replace Gleeson but is out with an ankle injury of his own, while Ince has major problems in defence.

Mat Doumbe and David McCracken started at centre-half against Rovers but both are suspended. Doumbe was sent-off in stoppage time for his second booking while McCracken collected his 10th caution of the season to trigger a two-game ban.

James Tunnicliffe has missed the last two games through illness but should be fit to take one place, but Sean O`Hanlon is out with a knee injury so Darren Powell is likely to be pressed into service.

Goalkeeper Willy Gueret is still struggling with a groin injury so Stuart Searle should continue in goal. Lewis Gobern (hamstring) and Sam Baldock (knee) complete the injury list.
