PREDICTIONS LEAGUE : MK Dons v Swindon Town
The month of September for this campaign is considered by some as a tough period. Three away fixtures against MK Dons, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Preston North End with a home fixture against Bristol City.
First on the list is the fixture away to MK Dons. Last time out the Town went down 2 nil with the first goal by Doumbe in the 58th minute and then conceding a 2nd late on in the 89th minute.
We have played MK Dons away 7 times in the league, winning twice, drawing once and losing four times.
The last time we won away from home in the league was in 2008 when we ran out 2-1 winners with goals from Billy Painter and Simon Cox from the spot. I think we’re due a win.
Our biggest win against the Dons away, came the next season in the first round of the League Cup where ex Dons boy Jon Paul McGovern scored the opener just before half time. Dons Drew level in the second half through an early penalty, only for Billy Paynter to restore the lead 3 minutes later. A second from Billy on 72 mins and an own goal on 74 mins by McCracken finished off the tie and the Town won 1-4.
Whatever happens on Saturday, it could be a nervy affair as it’s a televised game. In the past we have not performed well in front of the cameras, but this time out, let’s hope for a performance like home to Barnet in the JPT, home to Brighton in the League Cup, Away at Yeovil and last season’s Play-off matches against Brentford – minus the penalties.
