Fleetwood head into their league clash against MK Dons after a 5-2 loss to Burton Albion at Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday evening.
With four different scorers for the hosts, it was a tough evening in Staffordshire for Town, and even with the Cod Army’s best efforts to get back into the game, it was The Brewers who came out on top.
In the game before that, Town came out with maximum points beating playoff-chasing Doncaster. It was Barrie McKay who scored the only goal of the game five minutes into the second half for the Cod Army. Town’s number 19 managed to squeeze his shot in from a tight angle, beating the Rovers goalkeeper, Jamie Jones.
MILTON KEYNES DONS
The Dons are coming into the fixture in fine form winning three consecutive games including an impressive display last time out winning 5-0 against Swindon Town.
Will Grigg made history for The Dons against The Robins last Saturday becoming the first MK Dons player to score four goals in a single fixture, helping lead Russell Martin’s men to a 5-0 win.
In the game before, The Dons came out 2-0 winners against Bristol Rovers. It was Scott Fraser who gave The Dons the lead 17 minutes in, following up Grigg’s initial effort which was saved. The forward then doubled their lead in the second half, securing maximum points at the Memorial Stadium.
ONE TO WATCH: SCOTT FRASER
The one to watch from The Dons this weekend is midfielder Scott Fraser. The 26-year-old who joined the club in the summer has 14 goals for the season and is the side's top goalscorer this season.
The Dundee-born midfielder began his career at his hometown club, Dundee United, progressing through the youth system. The youngster at the time continued to impress throughout the academy and it didn’t go unnoticed as he was named U20 Player of the year in the 2013/14 season. Shortly after, he made his first-team debut at Celtic Park in the SPL.
The following season, the Scotsman was loaned out to Airdrieonians to gain valuable first-team experience. Fraser made an immediate impact scoring on his debut. He then went on to make 28 appearances and finding the net on five occasions.
On his return to his parent club, he was a key feature in the club's success which went on to win the 2016/17 Scottish Challenge Cup. This resulted in Fraser being named Scottish Championship Player of the Month for November 2017. After three seasons in the first team, making 81 appearances for the club he then went on to leave the club in May 2018.
In the summer of 2018, Fraser was rewarded with a move to Burton Albion on a two-year deal. He was an important part of the side which reached the semi-finals of the EFL Cup. The Scotsman was a regular feature for the Brewers over two years making 72 appearances, scoring on 11 occasions. His form then earned him a move to his current club MK Dons, where he has made 39 appearances and has scored 14 goals so far this season.
