Dean Lewington has been brought in from the cold after two months of exile and will feature again for MK Dons tonight.

Having not featured in the first team since November, Lewington has been named in the U23s squad to play Forest Green Rovers tonight at Brackley Town.

A bust-up between the 33-year-old and manager Robbie Neilson had threatened to call time on Lewington's Dons career. However the departure of Neilson on Saturday evening appears to have reopened the door to the life-long Dons player.

Entry to the fixture is priced at £6 adults, £3 over-65s and £1 under-18s while under-12s can attend for FREE. Entry can be paid for on the night at St. James Park, cash only. Gates open at 6pm.
