MK Dons will hand late fitness tests to Sam Baldock and Mat Doumbe ahead of the visit of Millwall.

Striker Baldock has missed the last three games with a knee injury while defender Doumbe has sat out five matches with a hamstring strain.

Both are close to full fitness but will be checked on Tuesday before manager Paul Ince names his squad.

Defenders David McCracken (calf) and Dan Woodards (groin) both returned in the 3-1 win over Southend on the weekend and while they were both replaced in the second half they should be fine to continue.

Midfielder Stephen Gleeson sits out the second of his two-game ban so Mark Carrington will continue to deputise and will be full of confidence after capping a rare start against Southend with two goals.

Centre-backs Sean O`Hanlon and Darren Powell remain on the sidelines with knee injuries.

Millwall will hand late fitness tests to on-loan duo Liam Trotter and Shaun Batt.

Batt picked up a knock after being brought down for a penalty, which was missed by Neil Harris, in the defeat at Wycombe at the weekend.

The Peterborough man is rated as touch and go to face Paul Ince's side, while midfielder Trotter is also a doubt after feeling a slight ankle twinge against the Chairboys.

Midfielder Marc Laird remains sidelined with a rib injury, while Jack Smith (hamstring) is also ruled out once again.

Winger Danny Schofield could be handed his first start in almost a month after coming on a half-time at the weekend following his recovery from a cut shin and a hip injury.

Striker Gary Alexander (heel) is a long-term absentee.
