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.
