TEAM NEWS

Phil Jagielka is again expected to be absent for Everton after picking up a knock in Austria, though fellow defender John Stones could be in contention after sitting out Saturday's visit to his former club Barnsley.

Boss Ronald Koeman may also opt to start some of the internationals who resumed pre-season training last week after handing most of them a second half run-out at Oakwell.


Dean Bowditch (calf), George Baldock and Callum Brittain (both ankle) are MK Dons’ injury doubts ahead of tonight's friendly.

David Martin, Darren Potter and Nicky Maynard all returned to action in the Dons' friendly against Aldershot Town at the weekend and are set to feature once again.

Despite the above injury doubts, manager Karl Robinson is expected to field a near full-strength line-up for the visit of the Toffees, with Dons set to start their league campaign against Shrewsbury Town in 10 days' time.

KEY MEN

NickyMaynard
 
Nicky Maynard

Striker Maynard, scorer of eight goals in all competitions last term, actually left Dons as a free agent in May, however he returned to re-sign with the club on 2 July. Now 29, he has vital experience with clubs including West Ham United, Cardiff and Bristol City and has scored nearly 100 career goals. He netted in the Dons' last pre-season friendly against Aldershot Town and is expected to start again tonight.  

DavidMartin

David Martin

MK Dons' long-serving goalkeeper Martin was voted the club's player of the year for the 2015/16 season. The glovesman, 30, managed to keep 11 clean sheets in his side's inaugural Championship season but couldn’t save the Dons from relegation. Starting his career with tonight's hosts, Martin left for Liverpool in 2006 but returned to his first club four years later and has now made close to 300 appearances for Dons. 

Bowditch

Dean Bowditch

A player who can operate as a striker, behind the striker or out wide, Bowditch has been consistent performer since signing for MK Dons four years ago. With a record of 32 goals in 164 league matches for the Buckinghamshire outfit, the former Ipswich and Yeovil man is a fans' favourite and will be hoping to shake off a calf problem in time to feature against the Blues.
