Let the Road To Wembley commence for the Dons

The Dons were in red hot form before Saturday’s defeat to Walsall where they were simply not good enough.

If we play like that against Huddersfield then we will lose by 2 or 3 goals. However, if we play like we did against Sheffield United then we will win for sure.

Our home form of late hasn’t been the best and stadium:MK has become less of a fortress. The pitch hasn’t helped the way we play and our free flowing football isn’t working as well. The pitch is starting to look a bit better and hopefully we can use this to our advantage on Saturday

Did you know?

MK Dons have scored a record breaking 106 goals this season, with 20 different goal scorers!

I think it’s vital that we get an early goal to settle our nerves. We must put pressure on Huddersfield from the first minute and not let them feel comfortable. I have no doubt that Karl and John will prepare the lads in the best possible way for the two games and I don’t think they need to be fired up as they know a place in the championship is at stake!

Playoff heartache will be fresh in the minds for both teams so I would expect a very open game and a few goals. I’m going to go for a 2-1 win to the Dons! I’d hope we could put clear daylight between us and Huddersfield but it will be tough and would require a performance of real quality which I know we are capable of.

Martin,

Chicksen, MacKenzie, Williams, Lewington

Potter, Gleeson

O’Shea, Ibehre, Bowditch

MacDonald

Karl has stated that Doumbe should play some part in the playoff games but I feel it would be better to bring him in for the away leg where it’ll be more difficult for us. Hopefully MacKenzie is fit to play because his strength in the box is unrivalled by any other centre back we have. We must go for an attacking front four that will interchange constantly so that Huddersfield cannot man mark us and hopefully leaving us with more space to exploit.

The dons faithful have been treated to a few cracking games at stadium:MK this season the 6–2 v Chesterfield, a few 3-0 wins, a 5-0 thrashing of Oldham and even a 4-3 win against local rivals Wycombe! Dons are capable of running riot and they need to make sure this game will live long in the memories of Dons fans!

With the Dons knowing this will definitely be John Gorman’s last home game, we all (fans included) need to make this a very special occasion for a legend that we have been lucky to have helping us out these last two years. Here’s to a very successful game for the Dons, let’s get the road to Wembley off to the best possible start! Come on you Dons!
