Sky Bet, the Football League’s official betting and title partner, has the Dons at 4/6 to begin their campaign with a victory, just as they have done in three of the last eight years.

This past campaign, the men from MK1 opened up with a goalless stalemate away at Shrewsbury Town and another draw this year is priced at 13/5. The Dons have drawn five of their 10 opening fixtures since 2004.

Gillingham, who ended their first season back in League 1 in 17th place last year, are priced at 7/2 to condemn Robinson’s men to only their second opening day defeat in their history.
