Opposition View 

“It has been a good week and the boys have been focused. If we can get them to focus on our game plan, what we're doing as a team and individually, and we can get that right, then we'll have a fantastic chance of getting a result.

“But, I'm sure Joey will be having the same mindset with his team. We're under no illusions that Bristol Rovers will just roll over because you don't get that in football. Every game you approach at your best, and you have to capitalise on the good moments and stay strong in the tough moments."

Mark Jackson - MK Dons Head Coach


Form Guide

MK Dons were beaten 2-0 by Exeter City last weekend, with Jevani Brown scoring either side of half-time.

Mark Jackson’s men made the better start but weren’t able to take their chances and were punished with eight minutes left in the first half when Brown converted from the penalty spot after Sam Nombe was fouled inside the area.

The Dons had opportunities to level but it was Exeter who grabbed the crucial second goal, 23 minutes from time – Brown the scorer again, pouncing on an unfortunate deflection off Devoy to slot past Jamie Cumming.

Ref Watch

Carl Boyeson is the referee for tomorrow's match at The Mem. This season, referee Boyeson has taken charge of just one game in League One with his sole refereeing appearance in the competition coming in Cambridge United's 0-2 home defeat against Sheffield Wednesday. In that game, Boyeson handed out four yellow cards and awarded an average of 26 fouls for that game. 


What Are The Odds? 

Rovers are priced at 23/20 with a draw on offer at 12/5. If you fancy a stalemate, then a flutter on 'no goalscorer' is priced at 10/1. Josh Coburn is a 2/1 shot to score at any time tomorrow, whilst the odds on Antony Evans opening the scoring are 9/1.
