MK Dons vs Morecambe preview
Last Updated: 26/11/18 2:46pm
Baily Cargill is back to boost the MK Dons' defence for the home clash with Morecambe.
Centre-back Cargill was suspended for Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Stevenage after he was booked for the fifth time this season.
Dean Lewington moved from left wing-back to the centre of defence against Boro, with Mitch Hancox coming in for his first league appearance. Boss Paul Tisdale is likely to bring Cargill straight back in. Forward Brandon Thomas-Asante will not be involved after he joined National League side Sutton on loan until the end of January on Friday.
Morecambe's injury list shows no sign of abating ahead of the game. Zak Mills has undergone surgery on a hernia issue that has caused him problems since his arrival at the club this summer and he faces up to a month on the sidelines.
Fellow full-back James Sinclair is out for another few months with a broken ankle, while midfielder Aaron Wildig has a calf injury. Andy Fleming is still missing following a knee operation and the Shrimps' joint top scorer Rhys Oates is nursing a groin problem.
This is just the second season in which MK Dons and Morecambe have shared the same Football League division - MK Dons went unbeaten against the Shrimps in League Two in 2007-08 (W1 D1).
Morecambe's last trip to Milton Keynes was on the final day of 2007-08, when Michael Twiss cancelled out an Aaron Wilbraham goal to earn them a point.
MK Dons are the only League Two side to remain unbeaten at home this season (W6 D3).
Morecambe have won three of their last five away games in League Two (D2), as many as they managed in their previous 29 (D10 L16).
MK Dons boss Paul Tisdale lost just one of his seven home games against Morecambe in League Two when in charge of former club Exeter (W2 D4), a 3-0 defeat in August 2012.
