MK Dons will be without defender Jude Stirling for the visit of Exeter.

Stirling came on as a second-half substitute during the 2-0 defeat at Colchester in midweek but lasted just seven minutes before he was sent-off for a professional foul.

He will sit out a one-game ban as Paul Ince's side look for a return to winning ways.

Fellow defender Mat Doumbe is a doubt as he continues to struggle with a groin injury so Darren Powell mat be called upon to make a rare start.

Strikers Jermaine Easter and Sam Baldock - who have scored 23 goals between them this season - were both left on the bench at Colchester as Ince opted to use Aaron Wilbraham as a lone forward but both will be hoping to start at home.

Defender Sean O`Hanlon (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

Exeter are waiting on the fitness of veteran central defender Rob Edwards.

Edwards has been ruled out of City's last two games - back-to-back defeats at Yeovil and at home to Carlisle - since suffering a facial injury during the 2-0 home win over Leeds.

City have been playing with one recognised central defender in skipper Matt Taylor in his absence as Tottenham loan signing Troy Archibald-Henville has returned to his parent club.

Against Carlisle, Liam Sercombe was recalled at right wing-back with recognised full-back Steve Tully switching to a central defensive role in a back-three alongside Taylor and Richard Duffy.

Exeter lost 4-3 in the FA Cup at MK Dons at the end of November despite leading 3-1.
