Football - As you were for Dons

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson is set to name an unchanged squad for the Boxing Day game with Walsall.

Robinson's men were due to take on Doncaster on Saturday, but with the game postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, the Saddlers clash will be the promotion chasers' first game in 11 days.

Central defender Gary MacKenzie is closing in on a first-team return following a hip injury, but is not likely to feature until January.

On-loan striker Patrick Bamford continues to have his hamstring injury assessed by parent club Chelsea, meaning Ryan Lowe will keep his place in the side.

The Dons have won their last six home matches, and go into the game against Dean Smith's men firm favourites.

Alan Smith, Ibra Sekajja, and Charlie MacDonald are all pressing for a return to Robinson's starting line-up, but having lost just one of their last 11 games, the stadium:mk boss is unlikely to make alterations.
