Check out our at a glance guide to Leeds United’s clash with MK Dons.
Key Battle - Charlie Taylor v Jordan Spence
Taylor was responsible for single-handedly winning United’s visit to Stadium:mk in September, earning a first-half penalty before producing a clinical goal shortly before the interval. He got the better of Spence at right-back and that will be a pivotal contest again. Leeds have no problem getting into good areas out wide. The issue is the quality of their service.
Key Man - Dean Lewington
MK Dons’ captain and a mainstay in their team for many, many years. Now 31, Lewington has made more than 500 appearances for the club and he’s started every league game this season. The left-back, who scored on MK Dons’ last visit to Elland Road in 2010, is the type of experienced player who Karl Robinson needs to help his side through a hard relegation battle.
Last time at Elland Road:
Saturday, April 24, 2010
Leeds United 4 MK Dons 1
Goals: Leeds - Becchio 13, Gradel 33, Beckford 80, 86pen. MK Dons - Lewington 19.
Phil Hay’s verdict:
Despite the result, Leeds were outplayed by MK Dons when the teams met earlier in the season but this is a must-win fixture for United. They’re up against a side who’ve lost 13 times already and who are struggling to average a goal a game. By no means is the match a banker but in the context of the race for the play-offs, opportunities like Saturday’s have to be taken.
Home win - 21/20
Draw - 28/11
Away win - 3/1
