Match preview: MK Dons (H)

15 October 2021

Take a look at the latest stats and facts ahead of Town's Sky Bet League One home fixture with MK Dons.

Shrewsbury Town are back in Sky Bet League One action this weekend as they welcome play-off-chasing Milton Keynes Dons to Montgomery Waters Meadow.

This week’s visitors are so far having a good start to their season and are currently sat sixth in the league table and are only four points off the automatic promotion places. Having lost only twice so far this season, they are on course to improve on their two previous disappointing bottom half of the table finishes since their promotion from Sky Bet League Two back in the 2018/19 season.

The Dons come into this one having not played a game in over a week since their 2-1 win against Wycombe Wanderers in the EFL Trophy last Tuesday. They will be looking to recreate performances like the ones they had against Gillingham (4-1) and Accrington Stanley (2-0) against Salop this weekend.

Name: Milton Keynes Dons

Founded: 2004 (17 years ago)

Chairman: Pete Winkleman

Biggest Win: 7-0 vs Oldham Athletic, Sky Bet League One, 2014

Biggest Defeat: 6-0 vs Southampton, League Cup, 2015

Highest League Finish: 23rd, Sky Bet Championship, 2015/16

One to Watch: Scott Twine

Having joined in the summer from Swindon Town in the summer, Scott Twine has started life in League One brilliantly. Playing in the number 10 role behind Mo Eisa and Troy Parrott has allowed Twine to flourish in that position.

He’s Don’s top goal-scorer in the league this season with six goals in 11 appearances. He’s also registered two assist as well. He also got himself his first senior career hat-trick in the 3-3 at home to Fleetwood Town at the end of September.

At the age of 22, twine still has his whole career in front of him and if he carries on playing the way he has done so far, he will have a very long and successful career which could take him right to the very top.

Assistants: Simon Shaw and Daniel Flynn

Match Reports

Match report: Shrewsbury Town 1 MK Dons 0

16 October 2021

Shrewsbury Town secure three points and a clean sheet with a 1-0 win over MK Dons at Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Shrewsbury Town's return to Montgomery Waters Meadow coincided with Steve Cotterill's men securing three points over MK Dons.

A goal in the second half of the fixture from Town winger Shaun Whalley was the difference between the two sides as all three points remained in Shropshire.

In a first half that saw very little action in terms of chances created, the best clear-cut chance fell to the visitors in the 37th minute. Dons number 10, Mo Eisa was played through by Troy Parrott, the striker then tried to fire a shot across goal but Marko Marosi was equal the effort and made a good save with his outstretched leg.

Salop weren’t at their best in the first half and didn’t create any clear-cut chances apart from a tame volley from Sam Cosgrove in the 19th minute which was saved comfortably by Dons keeper Andrew Fisher. Cotterill’s men reacted well in the second period and the introduction of Ryan Bowman at the start of the second half gave Salop the boost they needed.

Salop broke the deadlock 10 minutes into the second half when a smart ball from Dan Udoh played in Shaun Whalley beautifully down the left-hand side. Whalley still had it all to do as he cut inside on his right foot and from a tight angle fired his shot past Fisher at his near post into the roof of the net.

Despite the away side pushing hard to find an equaliser, the Salop defence remained resolute to block out any forward advances. Despite some success on the wings, Ethan Ebanks-Landell headed away any danger and continued to be a strong presence at the back end of the pitch. The game eventually came to an end with Town securing the win and the clean sheet.

The teams:

Salop: Marko Marosi, Luke Leahy, Ethan Ebanks-Landell, Matthew Pennington, Shaun Whalley, Sam Cosgrove (Ryan Bowman, 45), Dan Udoh (Rekeil Pyke, 70), Nathanael Ogbeta, David Davis, Elliott Bennett, George Nurse (Tom Bloxham, 89).

Dons: Andrew Fisher, Dean Lewington, Warren O'Hora (Tenai Watson, 87), Harry Darling, Matt O'Riley, David Kasumu, Scott Twine (Hiram Boateng, 69), Mo Eisa, Troy Parrott (Max Watters, 75), Dan Harvie, Peter Kioso.
