Dons could have midfielder Jordan Houghton back amongst the squad for Saturday's visit of Northampton Town after three months on the sidelines.

Houghton was on the receiving end of a late challenge early in the FA Cup second round game with Barnet in November, an injury which would require surgery on his ankle.

The 25-year-old though has been back training for a couple of weeks and Russell Martin confirmed on Wednesday he could be back in the squad for Saturday's game against the Cobblers.

David Kasumu too, who has been missing since the middle of December, could also return this weekend, but Louis Thompson's hamstring injury is likely to keep him out for a few more weeks/

"Houghts is back in full training this week and will be available for the squad," said Martin. "He’s looked sharp and he’s been such an important part for us.

"We thought David would be involved earlier but he had a little set back – we’re hopeful he can be back this weekend.

"Louis is a bit further away and could be another few weeks – so we’ve got a good selection headache coming up."
