LUFC - Leeds v MK Dons preview

Leeds entertain MK Dons this Saturday in a crucial promotion battle.

It will be MK Dons first visit to Elland Road has anything that was done under the name Wimbledon FC doesn`t count.


Leeds are enjoying a seven match unbeaten run which includes winning their last three.

Last time at home a late winner from Jermaine Beckford gave Leeds all three points against Swindon Town.

They will be hoping to create a new league record at Elland Road by winning their eight games in a row for the first time in their history.

MK Dons
Roberto Di Matteo`s side have slipped in recent weeks and dropped down to fourth in the table after occupying an automatic spot for much of the year.

They are however unbeaten in their last six away games.

Last time they played away they drew 0-0 with lowly Yeovil Town.

The two clubs have only ever met once since MK Dons were formed in 2004.

They were originally Wimbledon who played in South London, they were somehow allowed to move over sixty miles north, change their name and start as MK Dons.

So somehow Milton Keynes got a professional Football League outfit without having to work their way up through the many tiers of Non League football to rightfully earn their place in the Football League.

In fact they returned any trophies and medals that belonged to Wimbledon back to the Wimbledon Independent Supporters Association and agreed not to claim any history that happened during the days of Wimbledon FC.

The two clubs only meeting came earlier this season when MK Dons won 3-1, Robert Snodgrass scored Leeds only goal.
