MK Dons have made three changes for their meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion at stadium:mk, with Cody Cropper, Jonny Williams and Nicky Maynard recalled.
Two of the alterations are enforced, with David Martin injured and Samir Carruthers serving a club-ordered suspension. The other alteration is tactical, with Alex Revell starting on the bench. Williams will start in a CM role in the encounter, with Carruthers missing following high-profile events, and Jake Forster-Caskey ineligible.
Sitting on the Dons’ bench are midfielder Carl Baker and defender Ben Tiney, who return after absence through injury and loan spell out respectively.
MK Dons starting 11: Cropper – Baldock, Kay, McFadzean, Lewington – Potter, Williams – Murphy, Hall, Powell – Maynard
