MK Dons vs. Bolton Wanderers

Stadium MK

4 February


Preview: MK Dons v Bolton

Two of the relegated clubs from last season's Championship come face to face again tomorrow as our lot make our second trip to Milton Keynes.

It's safe to say we have coped more with League One than them. Despite recent rocky form, we're in a position where we can challenge for promotion. MK, meanwhile, are in the bottom half, and have changed their manager since then, replacing Karl Robinson with Robbie Neilson from Hearts.

And for us, it's all change in the personnel front. It's life without Zach Clough (if you leave out the times he was injured) and with a number of signings that could be involved at some point, it raises a bit of intrigue.

It's also a day of celebration in MK tomorrow, as they celebrate 50 years of being a soulless place.

Vital Quotes:

'I think Alfie can score those six yards box goals. He`s made a career from getting in the box and anticipating where the ball will drop.'

Parky on Alfie. Le Fondre back, eh? Lovely.

MK Dons Team News:

Dean Lewington and Ben Reeves are the main injury doubts, but new signings Stuart O'Keefe and Maecky Ngombo could feature.

Player to watch: Kieran Agard

Their top scorer from the wing, so our full backs need to be on their game.

Bolton Wanderers Team News:

There are no new injuries, the question is how quickly the new loanees are phased in, there has to be one change in the lineup obviously for Zach Clough.

Also, which loanee misses out altogether? Only five of our six can be named in any given matchday 18.

Player to watch: Adam Le Fondre

Who else?

There hasn't been this excitement over a new arrival since Eidur returned a few years ago. Whether he starts tomorrow though is far from certain. I reckon he won't actually.

Match Facts & Stats

Bolton lost 1-0 last season, in their only previous visit to Stadium MK

Bolton have six away wins, bettered only by the top two teams in League One.

MK took a while to win at home, with all three wins coming in the last four games, only Charlton breaking that run.

Match Prediction:

The Dons are improving, while we might be changing things round a little, so I'm going 1-0 MK Dons, sadly

Next Fixtures:

Two home games next week, as we welcome both Walsall and Rochdale.
