Preview: Swindon Town

7 March 2014

It’s a big game at the County Ground on Saturday as MK Dons make the trip to Wiltshire to take on Swindon Town.


A success for Karl Robinson’s men would see them leapfrog the Robins, move into at least eighth position and potentially close the gap on the play-offs to just three points.
The Dons have won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six outings, while Swindon are without a triumph in five, but four of those games have ended even.

Karl Robinson – speaking to MK Dons Player

“We are changing our system and I’m playing one or two different players. It’ll be different to what you normally see from an MK Dons performance.

“I’m very lucky to be manager of this football club, not only because of the fans and the chairman, the squad too.”

Marc Cooper – speaking to BBC Radio Wiltshire

“Let's be honest, who expected us to be seventh at this time of year, at the start of the season?

“I don't think I did. But we are seventh and we know people are going to drop points.

“Our only issue is can we take advantage of it? Have we got enough to get us over the line? We'll see.”

Team news

Dean Bowditch (groin) could be back on the bench for the first time since the start of February, but the game will come too soon for Stephen Gleeson, who has a thigh problem.

Darren Potter (Achilles) and Tom Flanagan (knee) remain longer-term absentees.

As for the Robins, forward Alex Pritchard is back in training after a knee injury and will be assessed before the game, but Ryan Mason will not be available following an ankle operation.
