Match Preview: Yeovil Town v. MK Dons


will Craig be fit?

After earning a point at Plymouth Argyle on Saturday, the Glovers will be looking to build on that draw in their home match with MK Dons. 

In fact, their fixture with the Dons will be their first home match since the 13th of November, although few are likely to have fond memories of that match, as the Green and Whites lost 3-1 to fellow relegation candidates Dagenham & Redbridge. 

Both sides are coming into the fixture on the back of good results, with MK Dons boasting a comfortable 2-0 victory over Bristol Rovers. Their recent form however has been inconsistent, as in their last eight games they have won four, lost four and drawn two. Although, they do still lie 8th in the table, and will consider their trip to Huish Park as a match they are very capable of winning, as they search for a third win in a row.

Injury wise Yeovil will be sweating it out over the fitness of defensive duo Craig Alcock and Adam Virgo, with the latter likely to miss out with a knee injury. Even if they do recover, Terry Skiverton is set to name an unchanged starting eleven.

Visitors MK Dons have been boosted by the extended loan of ex-Glover Michael McIndoe, who is likely to continue his loan spell against his old club, in what is sure to be a hostile reception for the Scotsman. Asides from that, duo Sam Baldock and Luke Chadwick are likely to return to the bench, with neither likely to be named fit enough to start. 

A win against Milton Keynes could see Yeovil climb within two points of safety, although that is relying on all the sides immediately above them losing. 

The Green and Whites may feel they have unfinished business with MK Dons, as a respectable draw at Stadium MK was taken away from them as Luke Chadwick seemingly dived to earn his side a 87th minute penalty, which Peter Leven dispatched to earn Dons a 3-2 victory. Will justice be done?

Tickets are available on match day, or if you cannot make the match, you can listen to it on BBC Radio Somerset 99.5FM.
