Football - Powell in Dons frame

MK Dons midfielder Daniel Powell is in contention to return to the starting line-up against Brentford on Monday.

The winger came on as a second-half substitute during Friday's 2-0 win over Hartlepool following three weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring injury. Fellow midfielders Chris Lines and Luke Chadwick are also pushing for starts.

Striker Dean Bowditch (groin) scored on his return to first-team action on Friday and is likely to retain his place in the side.

Manager Karl Robinson will check on goalkeeper David Martin (back) and captain Dean Lewington (knee) but this game looks to have come too soon for the duo.

Izale McLeod will also be assessed after he missed Friday's game with an injury he sustained in training last week, while Antony Kay will serve the second of a three-match suspension.
