MK Dons boss Paul Ince will be without midfielder Stephen Gleeson for the home clash with Brentford.

Gleeson has amassed five yellow cards this season and will now serve a one-match ban.

But defender Darren Powell returns after he missed the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Southern Section semi-final against Hereford in midweek through suspension.

Martin Devaney remains doubtful with the hamstring injury that forced him to miss out of the last two games.

He will be assessed but Jude Stirling (groin) and Sean O'Hanlon (knee) remain long-term absentees.

Meanwhile, supporters are again being asked to help groundstaff clear the pitch ahead of Saturday's game.

Despite heavy snow in Milton Keynes, the game is still set to go ahead.

Brentford could welcome Mark Phillips and Myles Weston back into their squad for the trip.

Centre-half Phillips has been sidelined for six weeks with a knee injury but has trained all week and should be in contention, although he will probably have to settle for a place on the bench after the Bees held leaders Leeds to a goalless draw last weekend.

Winger Weston has missed three games with a hamstring injury but is also expected to travel.

Tottenham youngster John Bostock has extended his loan spell for a second month and will start.

Fellow loanees, goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and defender Pim Balkestein, play the last game of their month-long spells but boss Andy Scott will try to extend their stays.

Regular keeper Nikki Bull is the only long-term absentee after a shoulder operation.
