Match preview

A run of just one defeat in 21 League One games since Christmas has propelled MK Dons into the places of automatic promotion, but they face a tricky home game against playoff hopefuls Sheffield on Wednesday.

The Dons, who dropped points in a 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon last weekend, are aiming for a fifth win in their last six home games against an Owls side that have done most of his best work at Hillsborough this season.

Only six of Wednesday’s 20 league wins have come from home, although they went past leaders Wigan, won at Rotherham and beat MK Dons 2-1 in the reverse game in November.

Dons centre-back Harry Darling is an eye-catching prize for scoring first, having netted seven times in his last 26 appearances in all competitions, including goals against promotion rivals Wigan and Rotherham.
