MK Dons v Brentford preview

Team news for Easter Monday's League One clash between MK Dons and Brentford at Stadium:mk.

MK Dons will be without Dele Alli against the Bees.

Alli is nursing an ankle knock following the defeat to Port Vale on Friday and the highly-rated teenager will sit it out on Monday.

Alli will be joined on the sidelines by winger Sanmi Odelusi, who had to come off injured after just 31 minutes at Vale Park, while Monday's match looks like it may come too soon for defender Antony Kay (thigh).

Due to the number of injuries in his squad, Dons boss Karl Robinson was forced to switch from his recognised 4-2-3-1 formation to a less familiar 3-2-3-2 shape on Friday and move Alan Smith to centre-back. Smith will probably continue there if Kay is not fit.

Adam Forshaw returns to the Brentford squad for the trip to the Dons.

The midfielder, recently named League One player of the year, missed Friday's promotion-sealing win over Preston through suspension following a red card at Swindon last weekend.

Winger Sam Saunders is close to returning following knee surgery but with Championship football next season now secured boss Mark Warburton need not take any risks with his players' fitness.

Jake Reeves, Harlee Dean and Will Grigg could earn recalls if Warburton opts to make changes.
