MK Dons boss Karl Robinson will welcome Peter Leven back into the squad to host Leyton Orient.

The midfielder returns after sitting out the 1-1 draw with Brentford on Saturday through suspension following his sending off at Sheffield Wednesday on February 5.

However, defender Gary MacKenzie will sit our the second game of his two-match ban after picking up his second red card of the season in the same game.

Striker Rowan Vine has extended his loan from QPR by a further month and is expected to continue in attack.

In terms of injuries, striker Sam Baldock is still struggling with a hamstring injury and will not be available, while fellow forward Angelo Balanta is still sidelined by a long-term ankle injury.

Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade could hand Tottenham loanee Harry Kane a starting place.

The 17-year-old striker netted a double after coming on as a 70th-minute substitute for Scott McGleish in the 4-1 win over Bristol Rovers and could be given a chance to impress from the outset if Slade decides to rest 37-year-old McGleish.

The second of Orient's on-loan Spurs duo, winger Paul-Jose Mpoku, will be expecting to play a bigger part against the Dons after only getting the last seven minutes against the Pirates following his exploits with the Belgium under-19 side.

The game is expected to come to early for midfielder Matthew Spring who missed the weekend's clash with a calf problem so Jason Crowe will again deputise.

Defensive midfielder Adam Chambers, who has struggled with calf and hamstring problems this season, continues to be sidelined with a shin injury and will be out for another three weeks.

Orient are unbeaten in 10 matches in all competitions but haven't won away in the league since beating Tranmere 2-1 on December 11th.
