MK Dons v Tranmere preview
Last Updated: 28/09/18 12:03pm
MK Dons boss Paul Tisdale must decide whether to shake things up for the League Two visit of Tranmere.
After an excellent start to the season, the Dons have failed to win any of their last four league matches and have slipped to 11th in the table.
Tisdale was particularly disappointed by the late goal they conceded against Yeovil last weekend, when he started with Rhys Healey and Kieran Agard up front in preference to Chuks Aneke. Defender Baily Cargill returned from injury and came through the 90 minutes unscathed.
Tranmere are looking to bounce back following their first home league defeat of the season against Newport last weekend. New signing Ryan Williams will hope to be included having missed out on a place in the squad against County.
The former Brentford midfielder joined Rovers a couple of weeks ago on a short-term deal following a successful trial period. Manager Micky Mellon has a decision to make up front after giving Paul Mullin a first start for the club last weekend in place of Cole Stockton. Ritchie Sutton (leg) and Evan Gumbs (knee) remain sidelined.
MK Dons and Tranmere haven't faced since the 2013-14 season in League One, with Rovers winning both matches.
Tranmere have lost six of their eight league trips to Stadium MK (W2), though they won the most recent game there in February 2014.
MK Dons are unbeaten in their six home games in all competitions in 2018-19 (W3 D3), their longest run within a single season since October 2013 when they were a League One side (seven games).
Tranmere, who beat Carlisle 2-0 in their last away league outing, haven't won back-to-back away games in the Football League since November 2012.
Tranmere forward James Norwood has scored more goals (seven) than any other player in League Two so far this season.
