The Gas face an away trip to Milton Keynes on New Year's Day...

Rovers travel to Milton Keynes to begin their 2020 footballing endeavors, hoping to build on a well-earnt draw away at Fleetwood Town.

The away form displayed by the Gas this season has been very positive, with their last loss on the road coming as long ago as mid-October.

They now face a Milton Keynes side locked in a relegation battle this season.

Player's Preview: Ed Upson spoke to the press following the Fleetwood Town game, and looked forward to the fixture on New Year's Day.

Opposition: MK Dons sit just inside the relegation zone coming into this game, in 21st place, level on points with Tranmere Rovers, with both sides on 21 points. However, despite the Dons' low position in the table, they've experienced an upturn in form, beating Oxford United and Portsmouth in recent weeks. Former player Russell Martin was given the role of manager after Paul Tisdale was sacked in November, this will be his first time facing the Gas as a manager.

Last Encounter: The Gas' last encounter with MK Dons, back in October, was a memorable one for Tom Davies who looped in a superb left-footed effort to secure his first goal for the Club. The game was a tight affair, with Tisdale's side set up to defend, but the singular goal was enough to secure all three points.
