Nicky Maynard and Darren Potter have returned to the MK Dons line-up for this afternoon’s visit to Derby County, with Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Alex Revell dropping to the bench.

Manager Karl Robinson has made three changes to his MK Dons side which was seconds away from beating league leaders Middlesbrough in midweek.

Rob Hall also comes in with Dean Bowditch, the goalscorer against Boro, also beginning the game as a substitute, while Antony Kay remains sidelined with an illness.

For the Rams, Darren Wassall names Tom Ince in his side for his first line-up since replacing Paul Clement as manager earlier this week.

Derby County: Carson, Christie, Bryson, Keogh (c), Hendrick, Martin, Russell, Shackell, Johnson, Ince, Olsson.

Subs: Grant, Warnock, Buxton, Bent, Weimann, Blackman, Butterfield.

MK Dons: Martin, Baldock, McFadzean, Walsh, Lewington (c), Potter, Forster-Caskey, Hall, Carruthers, Murphy, Maynard.

Subs: Cropper, Spence, Williams, Powell, Bowditch, Emmanuel-Thomas, Revell.

The match at the iPro Stadium will kick-off at 3pm as the Rams look to get their promotion push back on track, and the Dons hope to steer clear of the relegation zone.
