There is still a chance Dons could make a late surge for the play-offs this season, and a win over Doncaster Rovers would go a great distance towards helping that.

Russell Martin's side sit 13th in League One with nine games remaining, and are just six behind Rovers who are in fifth.

Doncaster though have had the upper hand over Dons down the years. In 13 league meetings since 2004, Dons have won just twice, with Doncaster claiming six wins. Doncaster have also claimed victory on their last two trips to Milton Keynes - most recently the 1-0 win last March, which turned out to be the final game of the season before Covid-19 curtailed the campaign.

The sides met at the Keepmoat Stadium in the first game of the season, which saw the points shared in a 1-1 draw. It would be something of a marker for the rest of Dons' season, as they controlled the game, looked good in possession but conceded with one of Doncaster's first efforts on goal and needed a well-worked goal from Baily Cargill late on to secure a point.

While Dons go into the game off the back of three consecutive wins, Doncaster haven't won in four, drawing two and losing two. On the road, they have lost five of their last six.

Referee Joshua Smith will take charge of the game. It will be just his 14th game of the season. He has dished out 38 yellow cards and two reds this season. It will be his first time in charge of MK Dons. Adrian Waters and Mark Jones will run the lines, with Fourth Official Rob Smith.

Bookmakers have Dons at 19/10 to claim victory at Stadium MK, with Doncaster at 14/5 and 13/5 the draw.
