MK Dons Preview

4 May 2018

Marcus Braddock previews the final game of the Sky Bet League One Season

This weekend we play our last regulation game of the season although we do have a couple of extra games to come that are quite important. We face MK Dons who have already been relegated after a really difficult season. Back in August I wouldn't have given an MK relegation much chance at all after a top half finish last season. Having said that, I wouldn't have given us much chance of coming third and getting to the Football League Trophy final when the season started either! Their form is that of a team in their position, they've lost their last six games but in the four games previous to that they won three and drew one so they are more than capable of better form.

72% of their away goals are scored in the first half, as are 54% of their goals conceded away.

Squad News

Town have no new injury worries.

Summary

I'm really not sure what to expect this weekend, will Paul Hurst name his strongest side or will he continue to rest players for the play-off games? Will MK Dons be playing for pride or with their heads down after a difficult season and eventual relegation to the fourth division?

I don't know but I'll be there to show my thanks for a great season, probably the best since I started supporting Town in the early eighties Whatever happens in the play-offs this has been a special season so soak up as much of the atmosphere and positivity as you can, I only wish it could be bottled and saved for leaner years!

COYB!!!
