MK Dons v Scunthorpe preview
Last Updated: 27/04/18 10:42am
MK Dons' first return to League Two in a decade is set to be confirmed against Scunthorpe.
The Dons are six points adrift of safety with just two games left and have a vastly inferior goal difference, meaning they will go down if they fail to win and two of Rochdale, Walsall and Oldham get at least a point.
Caretaker boss Keith Millen is without Osman Sow, whose injury absence has hit the Dons hard. Millen has also said he will not risk Peter Pawlett, who has been struggling with niggles.
Scunthorpe will book their play-off place with a win and they should have Cameron McGeehan fit. McGeehan has missed training this week with a knock but has recovered in time to face the Dons.
Andrew Crofts is over an illness that laid him low earlier in the week. Luke Williams (hamstring) and Jonathon Margetts (knee) will not play again this season.
Including play-offs, MK Dons have won just one of their last six league meetings with Scunthorpe at the Stadium MK (D2 L3), failing to score in five of those matches.
The Iron have lost just one of the last six fixtures between these two teams in League One (W3 D2), a 2-0 defeat in April 2015.
MK Dons, who have lost each of their last five league games, must win and hope other results go their way in order to avoid relegation to the fourth tier of English Football for the first time since 2007/08.
After failing to win in any of their previous 10 league games (D7 L3), Scunthorpe have won each of their last two matches in the competition.
Ivan Toney has bagged three goals in his last five games for the Iron and six in his last 11.
