Mk Dons' survival hopes have been dealt a blow with the news that their goalkeeper David Martin has broken his hand.

The 30-year-old picked up the injury in training and will now see a specialist to determine how long he'll be out for.

To make matters worse, winger Rob Hall is also set to undergo an MRI scan on a knee injury.

Losing Dave is a big blow to everybody. Dave has been excellent for us this season and there’s no doubt we are going to miss him.

Cody came in as the number 2 but he’s the number 1 now and he has to take that opportunity. I’ve got tremendous faith in him – he’s a good young goalkeeper.

Hally is a big loss too. He was training, changed direction and he felt something in his knee. There was no-one near him, not even in a competitive environment – it was a freak one.

MK Dons have recalled George Baldock from his loan spell at League Two side Oxford United.

The 22-year-old has impressed during his time with the U's, and Dons manager Karl Robinson feels that he can have a similar impact at stadium:mk in the second half of the campaign.

Baldock will return to MK Dons following Oxford FA Cup clash with Blackburn Rovers this weekend.

“George has put in some fantastic performances for Oxford. He has gained a lot of credibility for those displays and the way he’s conducted himself with them.

Michael Appleton and his coaching staff have aided the development of George, who has been through a real transition over the last 18 months. He’s found a defined role and now his aim is to come back here and force his way into the team.

We want every player we feel can influence us during the run-in, here at stadium:mk. He’s one of our own and I know he will dedicate everything he’s got to helping us over these important months.”

Crystal Palace midfielder Williams joins MK Dons on loan

MK Dons have signed Crystal Palace midfielder Jonny Williams on a 93-day emergency loan.

Welsh international Williams has been on loan at Nottingham Forest this season, and has also played for Ipswich Town.

“Jonny is someone who I’ve always liked from a young age. He really suits our style – he’s a very offensive player and can play in a variety of positions.

He’s also got an unpredictability about him and a low centre of gravity which gives him that ability to drive past people. He had a massive impact on helping Palace get promoted from this division – I’m really excited about what he can bring.

We'd have loved to have done this deal until the end of the season but as he's played for Crystal Palace and already been out on a standard loan this season, a 93-day loan is the longest we can acquire his services for."

– Karl Robinson, MK Dons Manager

In other transfer news, Luton Town defender Luke Wilkinson has joined Stevenage on a permanent deal while Alan Sheehan has joined the Hatters on loan until the end of the season.

Southend United have signed Southampton's Sam McQueen and Arsenal youngster Glen Kamara on loan deals until May.
