MK Dons will be without suspended duo Angelo Balanta and Peter Leven for the visit of Exeter.

On-loan QPR forward Balanta was sent-off in the closing stages of last weekend`s 3-2 defeat at Bournemouth and begins a three-match ban while midfielder Peter Leven collected his fifth booking of the season so also sits out.

His one-game absence could see Stephen Gleeson start for the first time since August after he returned from a back injury as a late substitute at Dean Court.

Former Germany midfielder Dietmar Hamann will miss out after injuring his hamstring in the first half while captain Dean Lewington is also absent.

The left-back missed out altogether last week with a knee injury which will keep him on the sidelines while Jude Stirling remains a long-term absentee as he battles to recover from a summer groin operation.

Jemal Johnson could be involved after returning from his loan at Port Vale.

Exeter manager Paul Tisdale has a couple of selection issues.

Striker Jamie Cureton missed the Grecians` 2-1 win over Carlisle with a hamstring injury but returned to training this week and Tisdale is hopeful he will be fit for the trip to stadium MK.

Cureton will have to settle for a place on the bench after the recent goalscoring form of Richard Logan and John O'Flynn, who impressed against Carlisle.

Tisdale will also have to decide whether to bring Troy Archibald-Henville back into the starting line-up after his return from suspension.

Veteran Rob Edwards deputised for the suspended Archibald-Henville in the heart of the defence at the weekend and could keep his place.
