Fleetwood v MK Dons preview

Date published: Monday 13th April 2015 5:10

Graham Alexander could considers changes to his Fleetwood team as they look to bounce back against MK Dons following their first loss in five games.

Midfielder Nick Haughton has started the last two home games but neither of the past two away fixtures and Alexander could opt to hand him a start at Highbury once again after the Cod Army’s loss to Walsall.

Right-back Conor McLaughlin (shoulder) returned to the squad at the weekend following international commitments, suspension and injury, but the form of Tyler Forbes could keep him out once more.

Fleetwood are five points off the play-off spots with four games remaining and remain without Jamille Matt (leg) and Danny Andrew (knee).

MK Dons will travel to the Fylde coast without the suspended Samir Carruthers.

Carruthers received his 10th yellow card of the season during the goalless stalemate at Port Vale and the midfielder must now serve a two-match ban.

Captain Dean Lewington underwent a scan on Monday to determine the extent of the knee injury that ruled him out at the weekend and the left-back is unlikely to make the journey.

Midfielders Carl Baker and Ben Reeves remain out with calf injuries. It is hoped Baker may be back for the home game against Leyton Orient on Saturday while Reeves could possibly feature again this season if the Dons are involved in the play-offs.
