Fleetwood visit Stadium MK for only the fourth time in their history on Tuesday night to take on MK Dons.

Goals have not been forthcoming in the fixture down the years, with just five netted in those three outings. The most recent game came in November 2017 when Chuks Aneke netted the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win for Dons.

Of the three games at Stadium MK, Dons have triumphed twice, with a single win for Fleetwood. In the seven total meetings, Dons have four wins to Fleetwood's two, with a single draw. The most recent meeting was in October 2019 in the midst of Dons' dismal run under Paul Tisdale which ultimately would cost the manager his job. Dons looked on course for an unlikely point in Lancashire until five minutes from time when Regan Poole and Lee Nicholls collided going for the same ball, allowing Ched Evans to tap into the empty net for the only goal of the game.

Currently managerless Fleetwood head to MK1 without a win in their last 10 games. Joey Barton was sacked two weeks ago, but they have lost their two subsequent games in a slide which has seen the Cod Army drop to 11th in the table. On Saturday, they were beaten 1-0 by Portsmouth at the Highbury Stadium.

Despite their 3-0 defeat to Peterborough on Saturday, Dons remain 16th in the table, four points behind Fleetwood with three wins in their last five outings, including booking a spot in the quarter-finals of the Papa John's Trophy.

Antony Coggins takes charge of the match at Stadium MK. In 12 games, he has flashed 34 yellow cards and two reds. Dons fans last saw him in the 2-1 defeat to Accrington last month. Garry Maskell and Leigh Crowhurst will run the lines, with Fourth Official Will Finnie.

Bookmakers have Dons at 29/20 to win, Fleetwood are 19/10 and 23/10 the draw.
