MK Dons boss Karl Robinson is set to be boosted by the return of three players for the visit of Dagenham & Redbridge.

Striker Sam Baldock has missed the last six games with an ankle injury but returned to training this week and could be on the bench against John Still's side.

Scottish centre-half Gary MacKenzie is also in contention after missing the Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Charlton in midweek with a groin injury, while Stephen Gleeson is also in the running for a place on the bench.

Midfielder Gleeson has not played since picking up a back injury at the end of August but is available for selection.

Robinson rotated his squad for the cup tie and Dietmar Hamann and Jermaine Easter will both hope to be handed recalls.

Jude Stirling remains a long-term absentee as he battles to recover from a summer groin operation.

Dagenham manager Still is set to name an unchanged side for the trip.

Still described last weekend's 2-1 win over Swindon as "the biggest in the club's history" and will keep faith with the XI who came from a goal down to defeat the Robins.

That would see Damian Scannell start again on the left wing with Peter Gain - who signed a contract extension this week - in the centre of midfield.

Bas Savage scored the winner to make it two goals in three starts since he joined the club and the former Tranmere man will continue to lead the line.

Defenders Will Antwi and Abu Ogogo are still sidelined with hamstring injuries and could be back in 10 days or so as the Daggers look to pick up their first win at stadium:mk.
