MK Dons v Gillingham preview

Team news for Tuesday's League One clash between MK Dons and Gillingham at Stadium:mk.

MK Dons will have an unchanged squad against Gillingham.

However, manager Karl Robinson may opt to tweak his starting line-up with James Loveridge set for his full debut and Dean Bowditch pushing for a recall to the team.

Loveridge, on loan from Swansea, and Bowditch came on at half-time at Stevenage on Saturday with the Dons 2-0. Their introduction coincided with an upturn in fortunes for Robinson's men, who went on to win the game 3-2.

Georgio Rasulo, Robinson's third substitute against Boro, recent signing Mark Randall and Ryan Hall are also options for the Dons boss.

Gillingham will be without loanee Joe Pigott when they look to return to winning ways at MK Dons.

The 20-year-old striker was recalled by parent club Charlton on Monday after making four starts for the Gills, scoring one goal.

Boss Peter Taylor could call upon Adam Birchall as his replacement after the veteran impressed in training but Antonio German is also available having returned from a loan spell at Northampton earlier in the month.

Chris Whelpdale (ankle) and Danny Kedwell (knee) are both definitely out but defender Ryan Inniss could return from a hamstring injury.
