Preview: MK Dons (A)

9 March 2021

Blackpool will be looking to make it six games unbeaten and three straight away league victories, in a trip MK Dons on Tuesday evening.

The Seasiders haven’t suffered defeat since the 2-0 loss at Ipswich at the start of February, going on to pick up 11 points from a possible 15 after that with victories over Rochdale, Portsmouth and Charlton Athletic followed by recent home draws to Crewe Alexandra and AFC Wimbledon.

Despite conceding late goals to Crewe and Wimbledon, the Seasiders have been solid in defence throughout the season, with Sunderland the only side to have conceded fewer goals so far this season.

Team News:

Daniel Gretarsson has resumed team training following a lengthy spell on the sidelines and will be eased into the team over the coming weeks to build up his fitness. Marvin Ekpiteta and Keshi Anderson remain sidelined whilst Gary Madine continues his recovery.

Last Time We Met:

Sullay Kaikai’s goal secured all three points in the reverse fixture at Bloomfield Road in October. Blackpool’s last visit to Stadium MK was nearly three years ago, in a 0-0 draw.

The Key Player: Scott Fraser

Fraser joined MK Dons on a two-year-deal from Burton Albion in September 2020. A product of Dundee United’s Academy, the 25-year-old made close to 100 appearances for the Scottish side before a move to England in 2018 to Burton.

A two year period at the Pirelli Stadium was followed by a move to Stadium MK, with Fraser having nine goals and six assists to his name so far this season.

Neil Critchley:

“MK Dons play some good football and keep the ball extremely well. They’re not in a good moment of form at the moment, but prior to that, they did go on a really good run of results. If you look at their side, they have some tremendous quality, so I wouldn't expect their dip in form to continue.

"We'll go there with a plan and we'll be ready."
