Key man Jonathan Leko and Mo Eisa are injury concerns for this weekend’s game, boss Graham Alexander has confirmed. The pair, who have 7 goals and 2 assists between them, are 2 of MK Dons’ key players, handing Notts a big boost.
If those injury concerns were not enough, Ash Hunter, the man who deputised for Eisa at the weekend, is also out injured. This will give Alexander a real headache in terms of selection, with 19 year old forward Max Dean likely to start, a player who has made just 10 senior league appearances in his career, none of which were starts.
While it remains unclear over the severity of the injuries, Alexander confirmed that neither Eisa nor Leko trained this week, which would suggest that even if they are involved this weekend, their minutes will be limited. This could be a big advantage for the Magpies heading to Stadium MK this weekend.
