Dean Lewington and George Baldock to sit out MK Dons clash with Rochdale

MK Dons will be without the suspended Dean Lewington and George Baldock against Rochdale.

Both players received their 10th yellow card of the season during the defeat at Millwall last weekend and must now serve a two-match ban.

Their absence leaves two holes to fill in a five-man defence with only one obvious candidate to come into the team - teenager Ben Tilney, who impressed recently when deputising for the injured Lewington. Dons boss Robbie Neilson may therefore have to revert to a back four.

Chuks Aneke missed the Millwall match with a hamstring injury and the striker will be assessed.

Rochdale have defender Joe Rafferty back available after he completed a one-game suspension.

But they will be missing Matthew Lund, another man starting a two-match ban for collecting 10 yellow cards.

And fellow midfielder Donal McDermott remains out of the picture, with this and Tuesday's trip to Scunthorpe still to go before his three-game suspension is done.

Twelfth-placed Dale are looking for their first league win since January 2.
