Robbie Neilson’s men have won four of their last six home matches in all competitions, while they tasted defeat at MK1 just once since November.
They do, though, go into today’s clash in search of their first win in three games, after taking only one point from two tough away fixtures at Oxford United and Bury. The men from MK1 will also be looking to get back amongst the goals after scoring just twice in their last four.
A win this afternoon would see Neilson’s side move above Charlton Athletic into 13th place, should the Addicks lose away to play-off hopefuls Rochdale. They’ll also want to close the gap on the top six once again, after slipping 11 points adrift in midweek.
Kick-off is at 3pm.
Fleetwood will arrive in Milton Keynes this afternoon with aspirations of stretching their unbeaten run in Sky Bet League One to 16 games.
The Cod Army, fourth in the table and just four points adrift of the automatic-promotion places, haven’t lost in the league since a 2-1 defeat at Port Vale during the second weekend of November – over three months ago.
Away from home, Uwe Rosler’s side have been solid throughout the campaign. While they’ve only scored 18 goals from 15 road trips, they’ve only conceded 17 times which is a total bettered by only Bolton Wanderers and the Dons in Sky Bet League One.
If there was to be one negative point made about the Lancashire outfit, it is that they tend to draw too many games – three of their last four matches have ended all-square.
The Dons were left frustrated on Tuesday evening after being held to a goalless draw by Bury at Gigg Lane.
Neilson’s men enjoyed the better of the chances but weren’t able to find a way past Shakers goalkeeper Joe Murphy.
Stuart O’Keefe had the best opportunity to earn all three points for the visitors in the second half but he fired over from Harvey Barnes’ cross despite being well-placed 10-yards from goal.
Ben Tilney, on his league debut for the Dons, also went close late on but his near-post effort was palmed away by Murphy.
