I thought when we played them away in early October they were one of the worst teams we'd encountered.... But in last three games they've had good wins over the Gas and Pompey and picked up a point at Coventry.... They must've improved...
Most important game of the season for us. Win, and firmly in the playoffs hunt and only 5 points off the top of the league. This can only be a positive for us in any contract and transfer activities this month. Excited about it already - COYB
There are no gimmes in football; otherwise we should have beaten Northampton. Good luck to them against Derby! We have won four of our last five league games (for 12 against 6 )so should have a good chance against MK Dons. It was good to be the team that kept going and scored a late winner v Fleetwood. It turned one point into three. Onwards and upwards. COYB
Shame i could not have this joy of being on a high all week, Joey Barton and his squad having a team meeting lasting a hour in the dressing room after the game. Such was the importance of the game. i cant get to the game on Tuesday but lucky me can watch it on ifollow. We have the transfer window and M_K Dons visiting us on Tuesday a home win [ on paper ] M_K Stadium holds 30-500 fans average attendance 9-276 whilst struggling in league 1, 3 times our gate and their team costs a lot more than ours. Since our last meeting the club has much improved under Manager Rusell Martin They sit 19th in the league table,and Coventry Manager had this to say. They have good players, great legs in the middle of the park they made the game very difficult and i was glad we did not lose. Boateng=Mason=Agard== and they have a excellent youth development scheme, and In Morris on loan from Norwich they have a powerful striker. Not expecting a big gate meaning over 3 thousand, will Nigel play fresh legs, any one thinking walk over forget it. Will take a draw 4 points from 2 games
Probably playing these at the wrong time but they probably think that about us as we’ve won 4 of our 5 previous league games, MK Dons have however only picked up 6 points away from home all season.
Feeling confident after the late winner the other day and think we’ll snatch this one 2-1 but we seem to make a mess of things when we have a chance of getting into a good position so hopefully we can do things right this time.
As big as the Fleetwood game was this is even bigger. No game in this league is easy but if we show the same fighting spirit as Saturday we have every chance of getting the 3 pts tomorrow and setting us up for a play off push. It’s all down to the players . An exciting 2nd half of the season is in store folks .
It's looking stormy for this tomorrow evening, heavy rain and up to 50mph winds.🙄
It'll probably impact a fair bit on attendance.... Just hope it doesn't affect the game too much.... especially the result... The forecast I've looked at says the wind should have subsided from its peak before ko. Hope its correct...
Unbelievable defensive effort tonight against a really good MK side who played us off the park more than any team has since we have been back in League One. To put it in perspective they had 73% possession tonight which is only 1% less than Man City had in the 9-0 game! Clearly didn't have anybody with the finishing ability they did but there were some real nervy moments tonight and whilst we defended heroically they still seemed to work it round us too many times for comfort.
Table looks good tonight and we are there on merit for definite and I hope this has a positive effect on the January transfer dealings both in and out.
