ACCRINGTON Stanley travel to The National Hockey Stadium on Saturday afternoon to take on Martin Allen and his MK Dons.

The game is expected to be a sell out, as the game is the last one to be played at The National Hockey Stadium before MK Dons move to their new home in the summer.

Stanley go in to the game knowing they are safe from relegation and will be playing League Two football next season following last weekends triumph over fellow strugglers Macclesfield Town.

MK Dons go in to the game, in a must win situation.
They sit in fourth place and have now opened up a 10 point gap over Lincoln in fifth, but three points on Saturday woulds ee the Dons draw level on points with third placed Swindon, who are occupying the last of the automatic promotion plces.

It won’t be an easy game for Stanley though, but my messge to any one who is travelling down, is to enjoy the game, may be have a few beers (if your old enough) and prepare for a second consecutive year in the Football League.

MK Dons Team News:

Martin Allen has Scott Taylor and Jude Stirling back from suspension for the vital clash.

But they are to be without Gary Smith (foot), Aaron Wilbraham (ankle), Jamie Smith (ankle) and Paul Mitchell (broken leg).

Player to watch: Izale McLeod

The dangerous front man is reporte to be on the shopping lists of many Championship clubs and it is clear to see what damage hecando to opposition.

Accrington Stanley Team News:

John Coleman will be thanking the lords from above that safety is secured, as Stanley picked up four injuries to four key players last time out.

Robbie Williams (thigh), while Rommy Boco, Sean Doherty and Shaun Whalley are all dubts due to hamstring problems. Tony Grant again misses out with his ankle problem.

Player to watch: Andrew Procter

Won’t be considered a danger by opposition, but proved what he can do, by scoring two goals last time out, one of which was a top corner screamer from 25 yards.

Match Prediction:

MK Dons 2-1 Stanley
