Yeovil are likely to remain unchanged as they prepare to host MK Dons.

The Glovers earned a gutsy point in a battling 0-0 draw at Plymouth on New Year`s Day, although they were left to rue a missed penalty from Sam Williams.

On a brighter note, manager Terry Skiverton has no fresh injury worries to contend with versus the Dons.

Paul Huntington completed 90 minutes at Home Park, showing no adverse reaction to a rib injury, but Stefan Stam only made the bench on his comeback from a hamstring problem.

Fellow defender Adam Virgo, nursing a knee injury, didn't make the squad and he remains a doubt.

The draw in Devon lifted Yeovil off the bottom of League One, albeit only on goal difference.

MK Dons will be without Michael McIndoe for the clash.

The on-loan Coventry winger has returned to the Ricoh Arena after his spell with the Dons came to and end following the 2-0 home win over Bristol Rovers on New Year`s Day.

Striker Sam Baldock continued his comeback from an ankle injury by coming off the bench after 62 minutes against the Pirates and it remains to be seen whether he is fit enough to now be included in the starting XI.

Winger Luke Chadwick also continued to fulfil the role of impact substitute on Saturday as he steps up his recovery from injury and he is likely to occupy that role again as youngster Dan Powell, the player he is trying to displace, hit the opening goal against Rovers.

On-loan QPR striker Angelo Balanta will be out of action until March with an ankle injury while utility player Jude Stirling is nearing a return to action after a groin strain, but Monday`s clash is likely to be too soon for him to make the squad.

Karl Robinson`s side have won their last two matches - which have both come on home soil - but they have not been nowhere near as impressive away from stadiummk this season, losing eight of their 10 league games.
