Adam Clayton will be in the MK Dons squad when Walsall make the trip to stadium:mk.

The Leeds midfielder signed on loan until the end of the season on Thursday and is set to be on the bench as manager Karl Robinson names an unchanged side from the XI which beat Peterborough on Monday night.

Goalkeeper David Martin returned from an ankle injury against Posh and will start while on-loan Fulham midfielder Keanu Marsh-Brown (groin) is fit again.

The club is still seeking clearance from FIFA for new signing Shaun Williams to feature while utility man Jude Stirling has left to join former Dons boss Martin Allen on loan at Barnet.

The Dons' win on Monday night has left them just three points behind the automatic promotion places.

Walsall will include loan signings Marc Laird and Jordan Cook in their squad for the trip.

Millwall midfielder Laird and versatile Sunderland forward Cook both arrived on deals until the end of the season ahead of Thursday`s deadline and are set to make their debuts.

Whether they start at stadium:mk remains to be seen after manager Dean Smith saw his side come back from 2-0 down at home to Hartlepool last weekend to secure a stunning 5-2 victory.

The catalyst for the turnaround was 56th-minute substitute Emmanuel Ledesma and the Argentinian forward is certainly pushing for a starting berth this time around.

His chance may well come with striker Jonathan Macken rated as 50/50 due to the calf strain he sustained early on against Pools.

Full-back Aaron Lescott continues to miss out with his knee ligament strain despite hoping to return in time for the fixture.
