The View From The Opposition: MK Dons

MILLWALL head into this game aiming for a 10th consecutive clean sheet and to extend their unbeaten run to 17.

The Lions will be looking to cement their place in the play-off positions after Neil Harris' side moved into the top six with a 1-0 win over Peterborough on Tuesday.

MK Dons are currently in a mi- table position after a poor start to the season which saw Karl Robinson sacked.

The early promotion favourites were just two points off the drop zone, and have improved under the new manager and are now seven points above 21st-placed Port Vale.

After a 2-2 draw at stadium;mk early in the season, both sides will be hoping for three points this time out.

Why do you support MK Dons?: I support MK Dons mainly because it's my local club.

Over the years I've become more connected to the club, having season tickets and attending many away games. I've been going for a while now, which is obviously not that long compared to others due to our short history.

What did you make or the performance away to Bradford that saw you lead the game twice?: The result against Bradford was a good one in my opinion.

It was definitely more a point gained than two points lost. Bradford were the better team, but we certainly had the better chances.  Obviously, it's a shame to lead twice and not win, but they hadn't lost at home in nearly a year. So it was a good point.

In a mid-table position at the moment are you hoping to push towards the play-offs in the remaining 12 games?: It will have to be a fantastic run from us if we are to get to the play-offs. I certainly don't expect it, and I'd take mid-table now to be honest.

Who will Millwall have to look out for from the MK Dons side?: There's a few danger men in our side.

Our biggest threat to the opposition, Chuks Aneke, is out for the game, a big boost to Millwall.

Kieran Agard will be a real threat, he's on 12 goals so far this season.

Our winger Harvey Barnes may also cause problems, his pace and quick feet will test your defence. Ben Reeves in midfield could produce a moment of brilliance, but has only just come back from injury.

Who do you think Robbie Neilson's men will have to be wary of from Millwall's side?: We struggle against physically good players, so Steve Morison may cause us problems if he plays.

Lee Gregory is also a very good player, so we'll have to look out for him.

Finally, a score prediction?: I don't see us winning, but I see us breaking your clean sheet spell. I reckon it'll be either 1-1 or 2-1 to Millwall.
