MK Dons hand a full debut to new signing Ike Ugbo in their FA Cup tie against QPR at Loftus Road.
The new signing starts two days after signing for MK Dons from Chelsea on a season long loan. His inclusion is one of 5 changes made by Robbie Neilson to the side that started against Oxford on New Year’s Day.
Joe Walsh is recalled after suspension, while Callum Brittain begins after injury. Scott Wootton is also recalled into the team’s defensive line, while further forward, Chuks Aneke is also recalled after starting on the bench against Oxford.
The players who drop out are Scott Golbourne, Ethan Ebanks-Landell, Kieran Agard, Peter Pawlett and Alex Gilbey.
The FA Cup Third Round tie is the third meeting in the tournament in five years, with the Dons losing a replay 1-0 at Loftus Road in 2012 before winning a Fourth Round tie at the same venue a year later.
MK Dons starting 11: Nicholls, Brittain, Wootton, Walsh, Williams, Cisse, McGrandles, Upson, Ugbo, Muirhead, Aneke
