MK Dons will have top scorer Jermaine Easter back in the side against Southend as they look to bounce back from the 5-0 thrashing at Carlisle.

Easter has missed the last two games after picking up his 10th booking of the season in the win at Stockport earlier this month but will be looking to add to his current tally of 16 goals.

Boss Paul Ince had a makeshift back four available for the heavy defeat at Carlisle but could have three key players back.

Danny Woodards (groin), David McCracken (calf) and Mat Doumbe (groin) are all back in training and could be available but Darren Powell and Sean O`Hanlon (both knee) remain out.

Striker Sam Baldock is also sidelined with a knee injury while midfielder Stephen Gleeson begins a two-match ban of his own after hitting the 10-booking mark.

Southend boss Steve Tilson will have left-back Scott Malone available.

The Wolves loanee, who missed last Saturday's 1-1 draw with Tranmere following a toe injury, is expected to return to the starting line-up.

Winger Sanchez Watt is also fit again following a sprained ankle.

The Arsenal loanee limped off early in the second half of the game against Rovers with the problem but having returned to full training on Thursday, the 18-year-old is expected to be handed a starting berth.

Midfielders Anthony Grant (ankle) and Stuart O'Keefe (hernia) remain sidelined.

Meanwhile, former Bristol City winger Andre Blackman is on trial with the Shrimpers.

The 19-year-old joined the Robins last summer but was released in October having made just two appearances - both in the Carling Cup.
