Dons will be desperate to get back to winning ways tonight (Tuesday) when they host Blackpool at Stadium MK.

Russell Martin's side are four without a win, losing most recently to Wigan Athletic as they got themselves off the foot of the table courtesy of a 3-0 win at the DW Stadium.

It was a result which saw Dons slip to 16th in the standings, now four places adrift of Neil Critchley's side who sit 12th, three points above them.

The year so far has been a great one for Blackpool, who have lost just three times since 2020 and head to Milton Keynes unbeaten in five. But they need to look back to 2006 for their last win in Milton Keynes when the Tangerines were 2-0 winners at the National Hockey Stadium in the FA Cup.

Tonight will be the 11th meeting between the sides, with Blackpool winning five, Dons four and just a single draw. The last time the sides met was back in October when Dons were beaten 1-0 at Bloomfield Road in a largely forgettable game.

Lee Swabey will take charge of the game at Stadium MK. In 22 outings this season, he has kept his red card in his pocket, and flashed just 53 yellow cards. His last Dons game was the 2-1 defeat by Portsmouth at Fratton Park in October. Stephen Brown and Conor Farrell will run the lines, with the Fourth Official Daniel Cook.

Bookmakers have Dons at 19/10 to win, with Blackpool at 6/4 and 11/5 the draw.
