MK Dons are looking to win their first game in five when they welcome a Blackpool side who have lost only one game in their last 10 fixtures.

A win for the Dons could put them level on points with their opponents.  Three points for the Tangerines will put them just four points behind the the play-off places, if other results go their way. 

Most recently, MK lost by three goals to-nil against Wigan at the DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Midfielder, George Johnston opened the scoring in the 23rd minute, heading the ball into the bottom corner past George Fisher. 

Wigan's number nine doubled the Latics' lead 20 minutes into the second half when Callum Lang met Gavin Massey's head with a rising header into the top corner. 

Sealing the game and the three points, Joe Dodoo capitalised on Fisher's mistake, playing a one-two with Vix Solomon-Otabor before tapping the ball past the goalkeeper. 

Blackpool also suffered late heartbreak when they faced AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Ellis Simms opened the scoring for the Tangerines in the second half but in the 90th minute, Ollie Palmer equalised for the away side and Wimbledon claimed a vital point in their hopes of staying in League One.
