MK Dons hand starts to George Williams and Dean Lewington for their clash against Bradford City at stadium:mk.

The duo’s return to the league starting line-up after the only changes from the side who beat Bury in the league last week. Both started and played 90 minutes in the Checkatrade Trophy match against Stevenage in midweek.

The players not in the line-up are Callum Brittain and Scott Golbourne, with the former away on international duty with the England U20’s and the latter missing out with an injury sustained last week.

The other player who keeps his place from the midweek match is Aaron Tshibola, who is the only player to have started all 3 games. The rest of the starting line-up all began last weekend’s game at Gigg Lane, and all return after missing out the midweek game.

All the players on the bench started the midweek game, with Chuks Aneke and Joe Walsh among those on the bench as they return to fitness following injury.

The Dons are looking for their 6th consecutive game unbeaten in all competitions, and to reverse poor recent form against the Bantams, who have won 4 of their previous 5 visits to stadium:mk in all competitions stretching back to an FA Cup tie in 2008.

MK Dons starting 11: Nicholls, Williams, Ebanks-Landell, Wootton, Lewington, Tshibola, Gilbey, Upson, Agard, Sow, Ariyibi
MK Dons substitutes: Sietsma, Walsh, Aneke, Seager, Muirhead, McGrandles, Nesbitt
