Milton Keynes Dons Vs Hartlepool United, Sat 4 Sep 2010

Published Add your comment

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson will name an unchanged squad for the televised visit of Hartlepool.

A brace from Sam Baldock saw the Dons come from behind to beat Swindon last week, and with no fresh injury worries, Robinson will go with the same 18.

Stephen Gleeson - who has been playing at right-back this season - is still absent as he recovers from a muscle injury which ruled him out of the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad.

Striker Aaron Wilbraham is sidelined as he recovers from his back injury and defender Gary Mackenzie is still waiting for his debut as he recovers from an injury sustained in the summer.

Jude Stirling also misses out as he rests his groin injury and Pele has left the club after his deal came to an end.

Hartlepool caretaker manager Mick Wadsworth is sweating on the fitness of forward James Brown.

Brown was substituted with an ankle injury after going down under a heavy challenge during the 4-0 Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Northampton on Tuesday.

Back-up goalkeeper Andy Rafferty is waiting for the results of X-rays on a hand injury, meaning youngster Liam Mooney has been placed on stand-by.

Ritchie Humphreys and Fabian Yantorno are hoping to push their way into Wadsworth's starting line-up, which has remained unchanged for the past six games.

The duo completed an hour when they turned out for Pools' second string against Gateshead in midweek as they continue to build fitness following substitute appearances in the first team's previous two outings.

Defender Neil Austin is still a week away from action following ankle ligament damage.
