LUFC MK Dons v Leeds Preview

Leeds travel to Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday hoping to continue their good start to the season.

Form


MK Dons Home form

The Dons have had a mixed start to the season on home soil, including cup games they have won three, drawn one and lost one.

In the League they have won two (Colchester 2-1 & Norwich 2-1), drawn one (Hartlepool 0-0) and lost one (Huddersfield 3-2).


Leeds away form

The Whites dropped their first points of the season in their last away game at Southend when they drew 0-0.

Before the Southend game they had played four and won four on their travels in all competitions. They beat Darlington 1-0 in the Carling Cup and enjoyed League victories at Wycombe 1-0, Walsall 2-1 and Colchester 2-1


History

The two clubs met for the first time last season since the club were allowed to change their name and move sixty miles north.

They used to be called Wimbledon and play in South London, somehow the move was allowed to take place and a change of name ending the history of Wimbledon who had won the FA Cup less than twenty years earlier in 1988.

Luckily, Wimbledon were reborn and now go under the name AFC Wimbledon, after a meteoric rise through the non league they are currently doing well in their first season in the Blue Square Conference.

When the two clubs met last season both teams won their home games.

Milton Keynes caught Leeds in their worst form of the season when defeating them 3-1 at home just before Christmas.

The Dons were 2-0 up inside twenty minutes thanks to goals from Sean O'Hanlon and Aaron Wilbraham.

Robert Snodgrass gave Leeds hope early in the second half with a cracking volley, this was short lived when Wilbraham scored his second of the afternoon.

It was Leeds fifth defeat in a row and one too many for Chairman Ken Bates who relieved manager Gary McAllister of the job the next day.

By the time they met at Elland Road at the end of March, Leeds were rejuvenated under new boss Simon Grayson.

Leeds enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 victory thanks to a goal in each half from top scorer Jermaine Beckford. The result was Leeds eighth home win in a row and took them to within a point of their visitors in fourth place.
