Storylines: Notts County

Clean sheets, another resurgent opponent, Agard on form and milestones are among the topics to keep an

22 October 2018 details the storylines to follow heading into Tuesday's Sky Bet League Two clash with Notts County at Stadium MK...

Clean sheet run continues
MK Dons kept Northampton Town at bay on Saturday to extend their run of successive league clean sheets to four games - their best run since April 2015.

It has now been 413 minutes since the Dons, who boast the second best defensive record in the EFL, last conceded a goal which is just 28 minutes shy of the Club’s all-time record set during the 2012/13 season.

Boss Paul Tisdale will be hoping they can maintain their excellent defensive form on Tuesday against Notts County and secured a fifth successive shutout - something the Club has never done before.

Paul Tisdale’s side are on the verge of achieving a feat that has never been done before by an MK Dons side.

Never has a Dons outfit won five consecutive league games to-nil, which is something they can achieve on Tuesday evening at Stadium MK.

The run began with a 2-0 triumph at Port Vale which has been followed by a 3-0 win over Cheltenham Town and a pair of 1-0 successes against Cambridge United and Northampton Town.

Another resurgent opponent
Just like Northampton Town, Notts County have seen an upturn in form since the appointment of a new manager this season.

Under the guidance of Harry Kewell, the Magpies have begun their climb up the Sky Bet League Two table and prior to last weekend, were unbeaten in five matches and had won three straight.

The Nottinghamshire club will be looking to return to winning ways at Stadium MK and will, no doubt, provide Tisdale and his men with a tough evening.

Agard on form
While Chuks Aneke has taken up most of the headlines for his excellent goalscoring run of late, Kieran Agard’s form in front of goal is certainly worth a mention too.

The 29-year-old has scored in each of his last three starts, including the match-winner against Northampton Town at the weekend.

All three goals have been fine finishes too, not least his terrific drive in the 2-0 win away at Port Vale.

It’s also worth noting that Agard’s goal at the weekend extended a fine run 11 straight goals scored by MK Dons strikers since Joe Walsh’s effort against Swindon Town.

Maintaining strong record over the Magpies
While history usually has very little impact on the game, MK Dons can take confidence from their recent form against Notts County into Tuesday’s encounter.

The Dons have won their last five matches against the Magpies and haven’t suffered defeat to them since a 2-0 reverse at Meadow Lane in December 2010.

Milestones approaching
Four MK Dons players could achieve milestones on Tuesday evening, should they feature in the match with Notts County.

Chuks Aneke, who recently made his 100th career start, is one away from his 200th career appearance. So is Jordan Moore-Taylor, whose career appearance total sits at 199 heading into Tuesday.

 Meanwhile, Lawson D’Ath will make his 150th league appearance if he plays a part in the clash.
