Youth team defender Lewis Dunk has been handed his senior debut as Albion take on MK Dons today.

Dunk partners Tommy Elphick in central defence with Adam El-Abd switching to left back.

The teenager has greatly impressed in Steve Brown's youth team this season and was this week offered a two-year pro deal.

He is son of well known former Sussex non-league player Mark Dunk.

There is no place for Ashley Barnes in attack as Chris Holroyd gets another chance to impress.

Meanwhile youth team midfielder Jake Caskey, yet to even agree a scholarship deal for next season, is among the subs.

MK Dons have a host of injuries, plus three key players out suspended, and can only name five subs.

We will have regular updates from here at stadium:mk via our Liveblog.
