Milton Keynes Dons News
Milton Keynes Dons earned a huge boost in their hopes of fighting off relegation this season after claiming a shock 1-0 victory over Derby County at Pride Park last weekend and the three points has given Karl Robinson’s men a much needed respite.
With only five points separating them from the drop zone though, the Dons are still not safe as of yet and will need to continue their winning run when they welcome Bristol City to the Stadium mk in what can be called a relegation six pointer.
Milton Keynes Dons Probable Lineup: Martin; McFadzean, Lewington, Walsh, Baldock; Potter, Forster-Caskey, Murphy, Hall, Bowditch; Maynard
Bristol City News
Bristol City looked resigned for the drop following a run of only one victory in ten matches in the Championship before February but two consecutive victories recently has given the Robins a huge lifeline.
New manager Lee Johnson seems to be already weaving his magic at Ashton Gate and the 34-year old will be intent on helping his beloved side avoid relegation this season.
A five point buffer has been created from the relegation places by Bristol following the win over Ipswich Town but things remain tight in the table and they will surely be keen on claiming a victory during the clash against relegation rivals MK Dons this weekend.
Bristol City Probable Lineup: O’Donnell; Golbourne, Little, Flint, Baker; Smith, Pack, Bryan, Tomlin, Freeman; Kodjia
Bristol City have not lost against MK Dons in their last 10 encounters but the Dons are a much improved side now and the Robins’ should not be complacent heading into Saturday’s encounter.
Both MK Dons and Bristol City will be keen on claiming the victory on the night in order to allay their respective relegation fears but the cost of defeat could also be huge and a draw may be seen by the two teams as a good enough result.
