A number of storylines to follow ahead of Saturday’s important Sky Bet League One clash with Bury…

mkdons.com details the storylines to follow ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League One fixture at Stadium MK.

Robbie Muirhead to continue his form?
A man who is certainly enjoying his football at the moment is Robbie Muirhead. The versatile number 16 was called up to Scotland's Under-21 squad for the first time in his career on Tuesday and capped off a memorable day by scoring twice and picking up the Man of the Match award against Rotherham.

Against the Millers, Muirhead adopted the left-wing back position - previously he's been played as a striker, a midfielder, and a winger. His ability to play in a number of positions combined with his lethal left foot makes him a key cog in Micciche's Dons outfit.

It's safe to say, Muirhead is enjoying his best spell of football in a Dons shirt and with the 22-year-old's confidence as high as ever – he could prove key if the Dons are to grab all three points against Bury.

Lowe returning as a manager
There will be a familiar face in the Bury dugout this weekend as Ryan Lowe returns to Stadium MK as manager of the Shakers. In January 2017, Lowe returned to Gigg Lane in a player-coach role and oversaw six games during his time as the interim manager. Chris Lucketti eventually took charge of the Greater Manchester side, however, after his sacking in January 2018 - Lowe took charge of the first-team until the end of the season. The former striker featured 51 times during his year with the Dons scoring 12 times during that period.

Also lining up against the Dons will be Jay O'Shea, the 29-year-old spent just under two years at Stadium MK scoring eight times in 52 games. Finally, Ethan Ebanks-Landell could face his former employers, the defender spent the 2012/13 season on loan at Bury featuring 24 times.

Building upon Tuesday's win
Tuesday night's 3-2 win over Rotherham marked Dan Micciche's first win as the Dons manager – and what a way to do it. After conceding the first goal of the game the men from MK1 showed passion, character, and determination to come from behind to take all three points. Muirhead's brace and Peter Pawlett's nonchalant flick gave the Dons a much needed three points.

It's now time to take the momentum from Tuesday night into Saturday's clash with Bury.

Family Dons Day
The Dons host their second Family Dons Day fixture of the campaign this weekend when Micciche's side face Bury.

A number of stalls and attractions will be present outside Stadium MK from midday, including fairground rides.
