Saturday will be the Dons’ final fixture before the first international break of the season and Darren Potter says it would be ideal for the side to go into that rest on the back of a victory.
Potter told this weekend’s edition of red dot: “It is an important game, especially in front of the home fans.
“It was a bitter pill to swallow losing our first home league game here to Preston (North End) but I felt we more than made up for that with the performance and victory over Bolton (Wanderers).
“Hopefully we can continue from that with three points over Birmingham which would be a nice way to go into the international break.”
Potter has been ever-present in the league so far in 2015/16, helping the men from MK1 earn seven points from their opening four games – a strong return according to the 30-year-old midfielder.
He said: “I think we’ve made a solid start. I would have certainly taken seven points from four games and I’m pretty sure if you asked the rest of the lads they would all say the same thing - we’re all really happy with how we’ve started the year.
“We’re not getting carried away with what we’ve done so far, though, because it’s just a start. No disrespect to some of the teams we’ve played so far but there are sterner tests to come for us and we know that. We know we’re going to be in for some tough tests but we’re all looking forward to it.”
