Weather permitting Walsall make the short trip to Milton Keynes to face MK Dons.

Vital Quotes:

MK Dons Team News:

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson is forced to adjust his squad after Luke Chadwick (knee) and Stephen Gleeson (foot) suffered long-term injuries.

Shaun Williams could return to midfield, Mathias Kouo-Doumbe into the defence, while loanee Patrick Bamford could be fit after overcoming a knock.

Player to watch: Luke Chadwick

The former Manchester United midfielder Luke Chadwick is in fine form this season.

The wide man has scored 8 goals already this season and Andy Taylor will need to be on his game to keep him quiet.

Walsall Team News:

Walsall will be sweating on the fitness of midfielder Nicky Featherstone after he missed Saturday's game against Colchester.

Flo Cuvelier looks set to stay on the bench as he continues to get back to match fitness.

Player to watch: Febian Brandy

Brandy tipple at Christmas.

He is the man in form.

He has scored 2 goals in as many weeks and continues to assist and cause defences problems.

Match Facts & Stats

MK Dons have the slight edge over Walsall, winning 5 of the 15 matches between both side. Walsall have won 4 and there have been 6 draws. The most recent game at Stadium MK was a 1-0 win for Walsall at the end of last season.

Walsall go into this game unbeaten in 2 (better than 1 win in 17!)

MK Dons have won 5 out their last 6 league ga,es.

Ref Watch:

The man in the middle is Stuart Attwell from Nuneaton. In February this year Attwell was dropped from the Premier League due to mistakes he made. The most controversial was his decision to award Reading's 'ghost goal' against Watford. Since then he has been operating in the football league. He has dished out 35 yellow cards and 1 red card so far this season.

Match Prediction:

I would be happy with a point.
