Helan cup-tied for MK Dons trip

Wednesday will be without on-loan Jeremy Helan for tomorrow’s FA Cup third round replay at MK Dons.

Helan is cup-tied after playing in the competition in an earlier round while on loan to Shrewsbury.

David Prutton is also ruled out as he will be serving the second game of his two-match ban.

MK Dons are hopeful that the tie will go ahead. The pitch was protected by covers today, following snowfall during the day.

They will be using their new undersoil heating for the first time in preparation for the tie, with freezing conditions and possible further overnight snow the biggest threat.
