A league debut for full-back Ben Tilney is one of 3 changes made by MK Dons for their trip to Bury.
The 19-year-old’s inclusion is an enforced change, with suspension ruling out Joe Walsh after the defender picked up his 10th yellow of the season in the defeat by Oxford on Saturday.
Also missing out through a ban is Darren Potter, who was sent off in the final minutes at the Kassam Stadium. His place in the MK Dons starting 11 is taken by Dean Bowditch. With Dean Lewington still out with an ankle injury, George Williams is given the captain’s armband.
The other change comes in attack, with Kieran Agard replacing Nicky Maynard, who is not involved. Taking the three vacant bench slots from Saturday’s game are Daniel Powell, Giorgio Rasulo and Brandon Thomas-Asante.
When Bury beat MK Dons in September, the result was their 5th win in a row in League One and sent the Shakers to 2nd in League One. However the North West side have only won twice since and start this evening’s contest in the bottom 4, although victory over Swindon at the weekend put them one point from safety.
MK Dons: Martin, Baldock, Downing, Williams, Tilney, Upson, O’Keefe, Bowditch, Aneke, Barnes, Agard
Subs: Nicholls, Ngombo, Murihead, Powell, Brittain, Rasulo, Thomas-Asante
