Only 2 days after our difficult match with Bristol City, the Dons travel up north to face Bradford. Seen replays of the pitch, and it doesn't look very good, so not sure how it will suit our passing game.

Will take a 0-1 away win, as long as we can get 3 points.

Read on your forum that Martin is injured?

Bradford should be fined for the state of that pitch,I saw the other day Parkinson said i feel sorry for the groundsman for not being given funds to sort it.

Yep, and Poyet wants the game against Sunderland to be played at their place because of it, not good all round. Apparently Parky did say to the board a few months back that it needs sorting before it gets worse and nothing was done, he wasn't too happy in a recent interview.

To the game, can only see a MK victory. Didn't think we played well yesterday and they are a good side. I'll go 2-1 MK Dons.

I'm going to watch the soaps instead.

I remember a few years ago, Oldham played MK on TV and the pitch was nothing short of horrific, don't think there was a single blade of grass on it and MK were still there, trying to knock it around like Barcelona, working triangles in their own half and stuff. Oldham just hoofed it and won, I think. I hope they won anyway otherwise there is no moral to this story.

Go on Steady, look after your old club mate.
Bradford to look after the other BCFC, hopefully, after we tired MK out for you.
2-1 home win please.

MK win to keep the rest of the league tight as a nuns .......... Every team should have something to play for come the end of April at this rate.

Can see Bradfords physicality getting them at least a point, can't see many MK fans going up.

Given victories over MK Dons are as rare as rocking horse shit, I can only assume you're talking about the 2-1 victory with Tom Adeyemi scoring the winner. I must admit though I cannot remember our pitch being *that* bad, purely because our pitch of recent years has been one of the best in the division.

That is as good a match report as the local journo's from that night.

Can't remember how, but we fucked up for one of the Oldham goals in a classic way we always do, when away, up North. Clinton Morrison pulled one back but too little too late.

Can see something similar happening tonight.

I did think this originally but having seen them on Sat they seem much less of a soft touch this year. We repeatedly tried to target that area, JET getting the long throws out and everything, but they dealt with our aerial threat as well as anyone has all season.

Although, I suppose missing McFadzean will be a blow in that regard

Kay and McFadzean are great at dealing with big lumps up front. So for tonight, Kyle will be missed.

They are slightly dodgy at times with nippy strikers, so KM missing at Gillingham on Saturday isn't as bigger a deal as I would rather Spence handles McDonald who made a fool out of both Kay and McFadzean on the opening day.

Lee Hodson coming in is fine too, he's a great RB.

An MK win would suit us but i certainly wouldn't put money on them here.

Working in Bradford this week and staying about a mile from the ground so big question is do I venture down there with me Swindon Scarf and Shirt to give the Bantams some morale support or just watch it on the TV in the pub around the corner Seeing as I am going to Oldham tomorrow night I don't think I can face freezing 2 nights running.

This should be quite a good game, expecting goals.
I was expecting goals Saturday between the 2 of us!

I'm gonna tune in to watch this tonight, was impressed with Bradford earlier in the season when they got a deserved point at the gate, so hopefully they can put in a good performance tonight!

Be interesting to see how JCH gets on for you, given you create chances.

He's never looked the clinical type, and lacked a footballing brain, but he was capable of the odd wonder moment/performance, which funnily enough happened in both fixtures against Bradford last season.
