Read our essential guide to Saturday's trip to MK Dons

Fleetwood Town travel to Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday in Sky Bet League One (3pm k/o) hoping to extend their unbeaten run to 16 games.

 

LAST TIME OUT

 

Town came from behind to beat play-off rivals Bradford City at Highbury on Tuesday night. Jordy Hiwula had given Bradford a first half lead, but goals from Devante Cole and Conor McLaughlin in the second half completed a superb comeback to win the match 2-1.

 

The three points stretched Town’s unbeaten run to 15 matches.

 

The Dons drew a blank in the North West as they were held to goalless draw at Bury. The away side had the better chances to win the game, but couldn’t beat a Bury side that recorded successive clean sheets for the first time since last April.

 

PREVIOUS MEETING

 

The two sides met at Highbury in September, where a Ryan Colclough hat trick downed the Cod Army 4-1.

 

Two Colclough goals and a Dean Bowditch penalty put the Dons 3-0 ahead, before Bobby Grant fired in a second half strike to give Town hope. Colclough scored another penalty in stoppage time to complete the scoring.
