MK Dons will be without top scorer Jermaine Easter for the visit of Yeovil to stadium:mk.

Easter scored twice in the 3-2 defeat at Millwall on Tuesday night but also picked up his fifth yellow card of the season so serves a one-match suspension.

Aaron Wilbraham should replace him alongside Sam Baldock up front as Paul Ince's side search for a return to winning ways.

The Dons have lost their last four games in League One to tumble from third place to ninth and need a win to keep up with the play-off pack.

Mathias Doumbe has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury and remains doubtful while Luke Chadwick and Martin Devaney both came off at Millwall after being sick.

The three will all be monitored nearer to kick-off but Ince will definitely be without long-term absentees Jude Stirling (groin) and Sean O`Hanlon (knee).

Yeovil are boosted by the return of combative midfielder Jean-Paul Kalala.

Kalala sat out Tuesday night's 3-1 home defeat by Walsall through suspension but is expected to make his return as Terry Skiverton's Glovers bid to bounce back from successive league defeats.

Kalala's replacement against Walsall was George O'Callaghan, who was impressive alongside on-loan Swansea midfielder Shaun MacDonald and could keep his place.

The other change saw Terrell Forbes recalled at centre-back in place of Stefan Stam, who will now come back into consideration along with a handful of others.

Nathan Smith, Sam Williams and Dean Bowditch, all introduced as second-half substitutes against Walsall, are also pushing for starts.
