MK Dons v Portsmouth
6th October 2012
MK Dons and Portsmouth meet for the first time when the south coast outfit come to stadium:mk on Saturday afternoon.
Ryan Lowe (illness) is a major doubt for MK Dons and is expected to miss out along with Gary MacKenzie (groin), however the Scottish international is back in training.
Mathias Doumbe, Adam Chicksen, Alan Smith, James O'Shea and recent loan signing from West Brom Scott Allan (who was on loan with Pompey last season) are hoping for places in the starting XI.
Darel Russell (hamstring) will miss out again for Portsmouth having suffered the injury last weekend. New signing Akos Buzsaky could come into the starting XI but a place on the bench is most likely.
Luke Rodgers is back in training so could return to the squad but Josh Thompson and Ashley Westwood (both ankle) and Alex Grant (knee) are out.
