Still undecided as to whether I'm going to this one - I went last season and I thought the ground was alright for a new build, but not one that I've got a massive desire to go back too.

Both of us have finally adapted and adjusted accordingly to Championship football and have nipped in the bud the flashy, expansive football and are grinding out a few results.

A draw wouldn't be that bad for either side, I'd certainly take that now.

O'Donnell
Little - Flint - Baker - Golbourne
Freeman - Smith - Pack - Bryan
Tomlin
Kodjia
Don't expect to see any changes, but if it was me I'd be giving Kodjia a rest and starting Agard up top. He looked full of energy when he came on last week and I think he'll get a run of games soon.

0-0.

Big game this, either winning will give them room to breathe away from the drop zone, however if Rotherham lose then a draw could be enough as it would put both 6 points clear of Rotherham if they lose. Fulham/Charlton is also a big game this weekend, a draw in that is probably the best result, keeps Charlton down there and keeps Fulham in the scrap.

If you're putting money on it I'd lump everything on a draw, that's what normally happens between us. I can't call it personally, it really depends if we play how we normally do, or if we stick with the style that has won us 5 points in our last 3 games, that's more suited for the better teams in the league.
I'd go with a similar team to the one that drew with Boro, but Carruthers is suspended and Potter isn't in need of a rest, and I'd bring Hall in for Bowditch.

Baldock - McFadzean - Walsh - Lewington
Potter - JFC

A draw wouldn't be a bad result here, just hoping JET and/or Maynard don't score.

I'd like to go given the importance of the game but can't justify it given that I'll almost certainly be going to Forest, Fulham and potentially Wolves in upcoming weeks. Very well priced again though from MK which I applaud them on.

Well I really hope JET doesn't have one of his world beating games that he's quite capable of!

Wouldn't be at all surprised if we come back with 3 points here. Huge following and a new found confidence from back to back wins may well be enough.

2-0 Tomlin and Smith

Huge following? We've only sold 1k haven't we?

I'm more worried about this game than i was for Derby on the weekend! i had a good feeling about Derby but don't for Bristol.

A win for either team would be huge if Fulham and Charlton draw but id be happy with a draw.

Just had a new allocation up to 2200 given I believe. Expecting 1500-1750 probably.

Aye I wouldn't either pal, there are some big bastards in that rugby team this season and they're smashing everyone in the division yet again! Top of the league still.

I never understood your lot being against being called 'Bristol', surely you should be happy as it means we don't even think about those other lot, especially as they've been 2 leagues below you for 2 seasons now?

I think we'll try to get back to playing a bit of football this weekend.

That'll go one way or another...

One or two are saying "six pointer" but to me that's only the case if the draw does neither team any favours. Truth is we might both be very happy with a point depending on other results.

Ah, nowt special then. 2k+ would be alright but I can't see that happening.

We never beat Bristol City, normally due to Sam Baldock or a shit referee.

"HANDBALL"

As you don't have Baldock I'll leave it to the ref to win the game for you.

MK Dons 0-2 Bristol City

Draw written all over this. Would I take it? Probably would tbh but wouldn't be surprised to see a narrow victory either way.
We are suddenly solid defensively so I will go for a 1-1 draw.

JET to score a perfect hattrick to send Jordan into meltdown......

In reality I reckon one of the teams will take it 1-0 not sure which way.

I think a draw would be acceptable for both sides if I'm honest.
MK have a run of games against sides near the bottom IIRC and this is the one they are probably least bothered about winning. Beating the 3 below us is all that matters IMHO.
We've got Bolton and Rotherham to come at the Gate (bet Colin will be looking forward to that) so victories for MK against those in the relegation places plus us beating the Millers and Bolton can help both of us, immensely.
I think both of us will be in the Championship next time around.

10 games and we've never lost to MK Dons!! Confident we can make it 11 although a win might be too much to ask for. 1-1 I think. Two first half goals.

Who do MK actually beat? they've never beaten us in the 9 games we've played against them either.

I can't see beyond a draw for this but if we do both survive this season, next one I think will be a lot easier with who is liable to come up compared with who is going down. Anyway, got to survive first.
