Shrewsbury Town are back on the road this weekend in Sky Bet League One as they travel to promotion-chasing MK Dons at Stadium MK.
Town are in a magnificent vein of form with three incredible wins against Morecambe (5-0), league leaders Rotherham (3-0), and Saturday’s (1-0) win against Lincoln City. This run has left Salop only two points off the top half of the table with six games remaining.
MK Dons are currently third in the league table, three points off second place Wigan Athletic and four off leaders Rotherham. They’ve had a fantastic season under manager Liam Manning who is in his first season in charge and they are all but mathematically certain of at least a play-off place at the bare minimum. Manning even won manager of the month back for September after only 11 league games in charge.
Salop are looking to do the league double over the Dons after a second-half Shaun Whalley goal secured a 1-0 win at Montgomery Waters Meadow back in October.

One to Watch: Scott Twine
Scott Twine has been in sensational form for the Dons this season. With 14 goals and 10 assists in the league, he tops both charts for MK and is their most valuable attacking player. The 22-year-old has predominantly played on the left-wing this season and has proven to be an absolute steal leaving on a free transfer from Swindon Town in the summer.
