Match preview: MK Dons v Wednesday

15 April 2022

MATCH DETAILS
MK Dons v Wednesday
Saturday 16 April
7:45pm
Sky Bet League One
Stadium MK

Wednesday will be backed by over 5,300 fans for the trip to Stadium MK on Saturday night.

It’s tight at the top end of the table and the outcome of the Easter fixtures will have a huge bearing on the final league standings.

MK Dons have automatic promotion in their sights after an outstanding run of results in 2022.

Liam Manning’s side are on a 15-game unbeaten run and sit second in League One, though their three-game winning streak was brought to an end last time out in a 1-1 draw with rivals AFC Wimbledon.

Wednesday are on a six-game run of resistance following the 1-1 draw with Bolton last weekend.

It was a frustrating end at the University of Bolton Stadium as Wanderers hit a late leveller, though the Owls remain in the top six ahead of this round of fixtures.

The previous meeting between the Owls and the Dons saw Wednesday come from behind at Hillsborough to pick up a 2-1 win. Lee Gregory fired the equaliser followed by a last-minute Josh Windass winner.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: The gaffer has said aside from some bumps and bruises in the Owls camp, the squad are in good shape.

MK Dons: This weekend’s hosts did not report any fresh injury concerns.

Tennai Watson and Aden Baldwin the only two players currently sidelined with longer term injuries.

Match Reports

Report: MK Dons 2-3 Wednesday

16 April 2022

A scintillating first half display was the springboard for Wednesday to bounce back into the top six as they overcame promotion rivals MK Dons in Buckinghamshire.

Star man Barry Bannan was the architect, providing two assists for Saido Berahino and Lee Gregory before converting a wonder-goal to put the visitors in complete control.

It was far from plain sailing, though, as Troy Parrott reduced the arrears on the stroke of half time and Scott Twine did likewise late on but it was not enough as the Dons’ 15-match unbeaten run came to an end.

Darren Moore’s men made the perfect start, hitting the front inside 10 minutes. And it was a bittersweet passage of play for MK goalkeeper Jamie Cumming.

Cumming shone in front of the live Sky TV cameras as he dived low to his left to expertly divert a slide rule Gregory shot round the post but had no time to bask in the moment as his error allowed Wednesday the lead from the resulting corner.

Bannan’s feed found Berahino, whose shot was too hot to handle and the ball squirmed through Cumming’s grasp to nestle in the net.

Wednesday were in control, playing their passing game, and on 20 minutes it was 2-0. That man Bannan was at the heart once more, this time delivering a corner on to the foot of Gregory, who volleyed home to double the lead.

But there was nothing routine about the third – indeed it ranks as a Goal of the Season contender.

Bannan was a full 40 yards out when a bouncing ball came his way. The skipper looked up, spotted the keeper off his line, and executed the most delightful dipping lob that sailed over a stunned Cumming and in.

But just as the Owls were heading towards half time in dreamland, they suffered a double blow. First, Harlee Dean succumbed to injury and moments later the hosts clawed at the deficit.

Parrott burst into space down the left channel on 40 minutes, cut inside, and did superbly well to clip past Bailey Peacock-Farrell with four defenders on his trail.

The goal certainly sparked the home side into life and they came within a lick of paint of pulling a second goal back moments after the restart.

Conor Coventry took possession 25 yards out and unleashed an unstoppable shot that cannoned against the frame of Peacock-Farrell’s goal.

Twine dragged a long range effort wide and the Owls responded with Marvin Johnson lashing a volley narrowly off target as the visitors began to take the sting from the game.

The possession game resumed and, a Twine effort hoofed clear by Peacock-Farrell aside, MK struggled to make any kind of impact in the final third.

That was until the fourth minute of stoppage time when the Dons pulled another one back. Twine lined up a set piece from distance and his strike curled away from the diving Peacock-Farrell to set up a grandstand finish.

But despite throwing men forward at every opportunity, the Dons could make no further inroads on a Wednesday side that hung on to post what could prove a vital victory.

Wednesday: Peacock-Farrell, Hunt, Storey, Dean (Dunkley 40), Palmer, Johnson, Byers, Bannan (Paterson 81), Dele-Bashiru, Gregory (Mendez-Laing 90+2), Berahino
