Darren Potter will miss out through suspension when MK Dons host Chesterfield.

The midfielder was sent off for two bookable offences in the final minute of the midweek win at Yeovil and will serve a one-match ban.

Luke Chadwick could benefit from Potter's absence after recovering from the minor knock that ruled him out on Tuesday night, while Adam Chicksen, Daniel Powell, George Baldock and James O'Shea are also in contention to come into the team.

Defender Gary MacKenzie, midfielder Stephen Gleeson and forward Angelo Balanta are all feeling the effects of a tough game at Yeovil and manager Karl Robinson will be hoping they improve in the next 24 hours.

Adam Smith started at Huish Park following his arrival on loan from Tottenham and the full-back should keep his place to make his home debut.

Chesterfield boss John Sheridan hopes to include new signing Alex Mendy in his squad.

The French winger has been on trial with the League Two champions since last week and Sheridan hopes to push the deal through in time for Mendy, who recently had a trial at Leeds, to be involved on Saturday.

However, receiving international clearance is posing a problem for the Spireites.

Mendy may not be the only addition to the Chesterfield squad, with Sheridan hopeful of making further signings.

Utility-man Jamie Lowry could come into contention for a start after making his first appearance of the season from the bench as a second-half substitute during the home defeat to Preston in midweek.

Midfielder Mark Randall and young forwards Jordan Bowery and Scott Boden are also options for Sheridan should he wish to make changes in search of a first win of the campaign.
