Livesey still missing for Cumbrians
Carlisle boss Greg Abbott will be without Danny Livesey for his side's trip to MK Dons after the defender suffered a hamstring injury in training on Monday.
Livesey missed the Capital One Cup victory over Ipswich and could be out for a further three weeks.
The Cumbrians continue to be without Lee Miller, who is sidelined with an ankle injury that could keep him out for the next few weeks and Rory Loy, who is still continuing his recovery from a broken leg.
Birmingham loanee Jake Jervis will return to the squad after being cup-tied for the Ipswich clash on Tuesday.
After making three changes against the Tractor Boys, Abbott may choose to re-shuffle his pack once more on Saturday.
