Match Preview MK Dons

8 February 2020

Marcus Braddock looks ahead to the weekends game with MK Dons

With all the F.A. Cup nonsense out of the way, it's time to concentrate solely on our League One campaign. Our first step on that journey is the visit of Milton Keynes Dons in Skybet League One. Currently occupying 19th position, MK started the season pretty well with a home win against us, the first of four wins in the first month of the season. However, from mid-September to mid-December their best results were a 0-0 at home to Coventry and an away draw at Doncaster. Since then, results seem to have improved with five wins and three draws in their last eleven league games. Their last two games were both home wins so they should be in a positive, confident mood.

The main problem for MK has been that they don't collect enough away points with just six points from thirteen games on the road. Their solitary away win in League One was a 3-0 at Blackpool although they have won away in the cups a couple of times too.

Head to Head

We've only played each other fifteen times with Town winning three times and MK winning seven. The last time we beat them was back in 2013 in League One when we won 3-2 in Milton Keynes. Our other two victories against them came in the 2006/7 season when we won 2-1 at home in League Two and later the same season when we won our away play-off semi-final 2-1 with a brace from Andy Cooke.

Clean Sheets

Five at home and one away from home.

Stats

MK Dons have yet to score in the last fifteen minutes of any away game this season.

They average less than 0.5 goals in away games, scoring an average of 9.2 and conceding 1.54.

They've scored 20 away goals this season with 50% in each half with 67% of their goals scored in the second half.

Based on their last eight results, MKD have the 6th best form in League One with 14 points gained.

Referee

Peter Wright from Merseyside. League One games this season: 5. Yellow cards: 19. Red cards: 1. Mr Wright last took charge of a game at Montgomery Waters Meadow in the FL Trophy in mid-November. He gave three yellow cards to Macclesfield and one to Donald Love in the 90th minute.

Squad-news

MKD could be without strikers Carlton Morris and Rhys Healy but will certainly be without Joe Mason because of a muscle complaint.

Josh Vela has a muscle injury that will keep him out for a couple of weeks, Ollie Norburn is likely to miss out again.

Summary

Milton Keynes may have had a rough season so far but they've recently dragged themselves out of the relegation mire and will be looking at this weekend as an opportunity to climb higher and drag a rival backwards. Russell Martin's team beat a Rochdale team that recently beat us and also scored twice and kept a confidence-building , clean sheet at home to Wycombe last weekend. Ex-Town loanees Louis Thompson and Carlton Morris are both on loan with the Buckinghamshire club with both players making good starts to their stays.

Town have to address the recent slump in league form and have to do it without influential midfielder Ollie Norburn. Our form wasn't brilliant before we lost him but our run of draws has turned into a run of defeats since he Limped off against the World Champions. The performance last weekend at Rochdale was a decent one but we need to turn our opportunities into goals and points because they will come back to haunt you as Rochdale showed us.

COYB!!!

5791 (447)

First Half:

Conor McAleny looked bright for Town within the opening 10 minutes and drew a foul from Jordon Houghton after just seven minute. Town’s forward continually progressed through the Dons final-third and caused the defender to pull him to the ground.

Both teams were faced with some confusion in the 21st minute as Peter Wright gave a penalty to the Dons after Joe Murphy made a tackle inside the box. Seconds later, the referee pointed for a corner-kick that lead to the ball being cleared.

A poor clearance from MK nearly saw Town take the lead in the latter stages of the half. Conor McAleny latched into a loose ball and drove towards goal but George Williams recovered well to block for forward’s shot.

The away side came inches away from taking the lead in the latter stages of the half through former Town man Louis Thompson. The midfielder drove into Town’s box to let off a powerful shot. To the relief of Joe Murphy, the ball rebounded back off the post and into the keeper’s arms.

The half came to an end with the two teams all square on the score board.

Second Half:

McAleny’s first-half performance carried over into the second, as Town’s number 18 continued to trouble the Dons back four. Sean Goss was also a bright spark for Town as he distributed the ball well in the middle of the park.

Town managed to find the breakthrough with 63 minutes on the clock. After a goalmouth scramble, Omar Beckles received the ball just inside the box and fired a powerful shot into the top left corner of the net.

Dean Lewington was booked in the 67th minute for pulling down McAleny in the middle of the park.

The Dons found themselves back on level terms in the 77th minute. Murphy was forced into make a good parrying save but the ball fell into the path of Rhys Healey who fired home on the half-volley to level the score.

Town continued to press forward to find the next goal and nearly did through Daniel Udoh. Town broke well through Josh Laurent and the midfielder was able to find Udoh in the box. The striker let off a low-driven shot but Lee Nicholls made a good save to keep the score level.

The game came to an end with both teams unable to find a winner.
