Second-placed Milton Keynes Dons host struggling Leyton Orient at stadium:mk in League One.
Luke Chadwick is pushing for a start on Tuesday night.
The former Manchester United winger has not started a game since picking up a knee injury at the start of November but made his return as a substitute in the goalless draw with Peterborough last week and could be handed a recall by manager Roberto Di Matteo.
On the opposite flank, Jason Puncheon will miss the third and final game of his suspension so Jemal Johnson should continue.
Jude Stirling is available after being ill and winger Florian Sturm is fit after a niggling groin complaint.
Danny Swailes remains a long-term absentee after his Achilles surgery while Flavien Belson is still out with a hip injury.
Away team news
Leyton Orient head to MK Dons waiting on the fitness of top-scorer Adam Boyd.
The 12-goal striker missed the 2-1 defeat to Scunthorpe at the weekend having picked up a knock in the 1-1 draw against Southend last week and faces a late fitness test.
Caretaker boss Kevin Nugent will definitely be missing midfielders Sean Thorton and Adam Chambers through a thigh injury and suspension respectively.
Nugent is however holding out hope that Charlie Daniels will be fit despite the midfielder picking up a dead leg at the weekend.
Striker Wayne Gray remains sidelined with a cruciate knee ligament injury and is out until March.
Orient are struggling at the foot of League One and have not won since November.
