Looking to make it four wins on the bounce this weekend, MK Dons will host away day strugglers Doncaster in an empty Buckinghamshire on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while MK Dons might have been enduring a real struggle when heading into March, The Whites are enjoying a real boost over the past fortnight. Knowing that victory this weekend could see them break back into the top-half of the League One table, Russell Martin’s men were last seen out picking up an eye-catching 2-1 win away at a resurging Burton. Bringing an end to Burton’s seven-match unbeaten run last weekend, The Dons have now won each of their last three League One contests on the spin. With their recent purple patch highlighted by a 3-2 win against play-off contenders Accrington Stanley, Saturday’s hosts have also continued to impress with their performances on home soil. Losing just one of their last six contests in Buckinghamshire, it should also be noted that five of their last six home fixtures have finished with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, although Doncaster might still be sat in pole position to secure a play-off spot this year, they are in the midst of a recent sluggish patch. Still struggling to fill the void left by former boss Darren Moore, interim coach Andy Butler has seen his temporary squad fail to win any of their last four League One contests. Eventually coming from behind and grabbing an action-packed 2-2 draw off of Gillingham in Kent, The Rovers open this weekend’s fixtures holding just a one-point buffer from slipping out of the top-six. Shipping five goals in back-to-back contests, it should also be noted that Doncaster hold a woeful record on the road. Remarkably picking up just a single third-tier point away from The Keepmoat Stadium since the end of January, we’re backing what could be a lively affair on Saturday afternoon.
