THE Brewers return to League One action with an away trip to MK Dons tomorrow (kick off 3pm).
HEAD 2 HEAD
The Brewers have never played MK Dons with the clubs missing each other as they have both moved up and down from League Two to the Championship since Albion joined the Football League in 2009. The Brewers do have two former MK Dons players in the current squad – Lloyd Dyer and Stephen Quinn - and among the players who have turned out for both clubs are Kyle McFadzean
BREWERS TEAM NEWS
Albion expect to be without Stephen Quinn (knee) and John Brayford (calf) while Jake Buxton (ribs) may only be fit enough for the bench. Nathan Broadhead will be back in contention after being unable to play against his parent club on Tuesday night. Scott Fraser and Richard Nartey both came on as second half subs on Tuesday as they come back from injury.
MK DONS NEWS
After three consecutive League One defeats including a 2-1 loss away at Sunderland last Saturday, MK Dons got back to winning ways in the Leasing.com Trophy on Tuesday beating Fulham U21s 1-0.
The MK Dons official website said: “There were plenty of positives for Paul Tisdale in midweek as his MK Dons side made it two wins from two in the Leasing.com Trophy. Striker Kieran Agard grabbed the decisive goal early in the second half, as he found the net for the first time since August, while defender Matthew Sorinola was impressive on his senior debut. What’s more, Jordan Moore-Taylor made his first appearance since returning from a knee injury which has sidelined him since January.”
The man in charge of the game is Ollie Yates. His assistants will be Andrew Williams and Nicholas Cooper.
Mr Yates has never taken charge of a Brewers game previously despite stepping up to the EFL from non-league in 2016/17. He has been the man in the middle on eight occasions this season – four of them in League One – and he has handed out 31 yellow cards and one red card.
MK Dons host their first Family Fun Day event of the season this weekend and with it, a bumper crowd is expected at Stadium MK.
Brewers fans will be housed in the North Stand Lower at Stadium MK, with tickets priced as follows:
Senior (over-65): £10
Under-12: Free (with a fully paying adult)
Tickets for disabled supporters are as the list above, with a personal assistant free of charge.
Supporters will be issued with a paper ticket with a barcode on the stub. It is important to keep your ticket in good condition and to ensure the stub is not detached as the barcode will need to be scanned to gain access to the stadium.
All supporters are encouraged to buy tickets in advance rather than at the away ticket booth (cash only) as this will avoid queues both at the booth and at the turnstiles.
Parking is available at Stadium MK for a fee of £7, and it is highly recommended to purchase in advance via mkdons.com. Match-day spaces for blue badge holders are limited and must be pre-booked by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. MK Dons cannot guarantee an on-site parking space for blue badge holders who have not pre-booked but drop-off/pick-up points are available outside Gates 2, 4 and 7.
