MK Dons boss Karl Robinson is hoping for a double striker boost ahead of the visit of league leaders Brighton.

Robinson saw his side draw a blank in the goalless draw at home to Oldham on Tuesday night but could welcome Jabo Ibehre and Sam Baldock to his squad against Gus Poyet's side.

Ibehre has missed the last two games with illness but is expected to be back in the fold, while Baldock remains a doubt.

Baldock has missed the last seven games after sustaining a hamstring injury last month but returned to training on Monday.

The club also received more positive news as on-loan QPR winger Angelo Balanta has stepped up his rehabilitation from ankle surgery, but Liverpool winger David Amoo has returned to Anfield after a loan spell.

Right-back Danny Woodards is a doubt with an ankle injury but Fulham youngster Keanu Marsh-Brown has extended his loan until the end of the season.

Radostin Kishishev could be added to the Brighton squad.

The Bulgarian veteran has not featured for Albion since January due to a back injury and then personal reasons, but he has resumed training and his fitness will be assessed ahead of the weekend.

Fellow midfielder Alan Navarro made a welcome return to full training with the rest of the first team on Thursday after six months out with a cruciate injury, although he will not be considered yet.

Left-back Jim McNulty (ankle) and midfielder Jamie Smith (foot) are still on the sidelines but boss Gus Poyet has no new injury problems.

Poyet could therefore stick with the side which thumped Plymouth 4-0 in midweek to move four points clear at the top.
