FLEETWOOD TOWN

Fleetwood fell to 5th place in Sky Bet League One following a midweek loss to Coventry City, however they still sit four points off top with a game in hand.

The Cod Army will look to continue their impressive home form at the weekend, with five wins, one draw and as many losses this season.

There are no new injury concerns for Town’s head coach, with a full-strength side at his disposal. Paul Coutts becomes available for selection again after sitting out the last match through suspension.

MK DONS

MK Dons sit in 19th place in the League One table - just one point off relegation - and have won one of their last five games in all competitions.

Paul Tisdale's side haven't hit their stride in the league so far this season and have not scored a goal in their last four outings, but they will be looking to turn that around when they travel to Highbury to face the Cod Army. 

The Dons expect to be without frontmen Joe Mason (hamstring), Rhys Healey (thigh) and Sam Nombe (knee) for this weekend’s clash.

ONE TO WATCH: DAVID KASUMU

David Kasumu joined MK Dons’ academy at a young age; and went on to progress through the age groups before joining the club’s development squad. After impressing at club level, he earned himself a call-up to the Nigerian U15s national team.

The midfielder then went on to win the Dons’ Academy Player of the Year 2017/18, and the youngster registered his first goal for the club against rivals AFC Wimbledon in a 2-2 EFL Cup first-round tie.

WHAT JOEY BARTON HAD TO SAY:

“This league is relentless, and on Saturday we have an opportunity to put it right. As I have said, we are frustrated in many aspects as we’ve come away empty-handed, and that is not what champion teams do.

“I went to watch MK Dons against Rochdale and they will play 3-5-2 and it’s one I am looking forward to. We will have plenty of opportunities to cause them problems, and we will need to be on the front foot with the fans behind us.”
