MK Dons boss Karl Robinson is waiting on the fitness of Stephen Gleeson ahead of the visit of Swindon.

Gleeson missed the Carling Cup win over Blackpool in midweek with a muscle strain and has been sent for a scan.

However Robinson is hopeful of having the midfielder - who has been playing at right-back this season - back in training before the game and he could feature.

Striker Aaron Wilbraham is out as he recovers from his back injury but is due back in training on Monday but defender Gary Mackenzie is still waiting for his debut as he recovers from an injury picked up in the summer.

Jude Stirling also misses out as he rests his groin injury and Pele begins a lay-off after pulling a thigh muscle.

Charlie Austin and Jon-Paul McGovern are Swindon's only injury doubts as they search for their first win of the season.

Striker Austin suffered a minimal hamstring strain in the first-half of the Robins' 1-1 draw with Brentford last week and although he completed the 90 minutes, he may be forced to miss the clash at stadium:mk.

McGovern has picked up a slight groin strain and though the club are hopeful of his availability for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash against Southampton, Saturday's game may come too soon.

Town manager Danny Wilson is aware that the Dons may still be smarting from their drubbing at Carlisle last week and so expects a tough tie.

He told STFC Player: "They've had a little bit of a hiccup with their preparations in their 4-1 defeat to Carlisle but I'd like to think they're better than that.

"We're prepared to have a very good test against them."
