MK Dons v Bolton likely line-ups, odds, all you need to know

Bolton head to MK Dons searching for a much-needed return to form and hoping to complete the double over their hosts.

From likely line-ups to key men, the referee and odds, find out all you need to know about the game below.

LIKELY LINE-UPS

MK Dons (4-3-3): Nicholls, Poole, Williams, Moore-Taylor, Lewington, Gilbey, McGrandles, Houghton, Nombe, Morris, Healey

Wanderers (4-3-3): Matthews, Emmanuel, Hobbs, Nsiala, Fleming, Lowe, Crawford, L Murphy, Politic, D Murphy, Dodoo

OPPOSITION MANAGER

Russell Martin: Former Norwich City and Scotland defender who took over the reins from Paul Tisdale in November, roughly a year after joining the club as a player. Martin has imprinted a new style of play on the Dons – one based largely on playing out from the back – and it has reaped dividends in recent weeks as the club edged away from trouble.

HEADLINE NEWS

Joe Mason could return to action for MK Dons against Wanderers – a club he played for on three occasions on loan from Cardiff City (MK Citizen)

Goalkeeper Lee Nicholls admits the new style of play brought in by manager Russell Martin at the end of last year felt “alien” (MK Citizen)

Russell Martin has thanked Norwich City for lending him Carlton Morris and Louis Thompson as he attempts to keep his side in League One (The Pink ‘Un)

WHO MAKES THEM TICK?

At the back: Lee Nicholls – Ever-present this season, the keeper has had to adapt to a new style of play and does well with the ball at his feet.

In the middle: Jordan Houghton – Former Chelsea trainee who tends to play on the left side of midfield and can chip in with the goals.

Up front: Rhys Healy – Ex-Cardiff man who has been a goalscoring success at MK Dons so far, scoring nine in 15 games.

THEY SAID IT

“We’re in charge of our own destiny. It helps us, of course, when results go your way but we are focusing on us and taking care of our own business.

“I told the players that this month could define the season and can make it easier for everyone come next month.

“We have to be aware of the threat, of course, because we’re not safe and I won’t be comfortable until it’s mathematically done, but our aim has to be on the team directly above us and chasing them down” – Russell Martin is much happier with his side’s form in the last few weeks

HEAD-TO-HEAD HISTORY

Played – 5

Wanderers wins – 2

Draws – 2

MK Dons wins – 1

BOOKIES ODDS

Bolton win – 9/2, draw – 3/1, MK Dons win – 8/13

REFEREE

Ollie Yates – Staffordshire referee who has given out 98 yellow cards and seven reds in his 28 games this season. His last encounter with Wanderers came on September 21 last year as Keith Hill’s side drew 1-1 at home against Sunderland.

FIXTURE TRENDS

Wanderers have lost just one of their five meetings with MK Dons – and that was the first one, as Daniel Powell’s goal settled a Championship game at Stadium MK.

MK Dons striker Joe Mason is the last person to score a senior league hat-trick for Wanderers. He did it against Rotherham in a 3-2 victory on September 16, 2014.

Wanderers have not won a game at Stadium MK – their previous visit in February 2017 ending in a 1-1 draw with Jay Spearing on the scoresheet for the Whites.

TRIVIA

There are currently 130 roundabouts in Milton Keynes. When the town was built it was decided that no building would be taller than the nearest tree – although that rule has now been relaxed. The town has been used on various film shoots, including Withnail and I and Monty Python’s Meaning of Life.

TICKETS

Adults – £22, Over-65s – £17, Under-18s – £7, Under-12s – Free (with a paying adult and not available online)

FIXTURES

Accrington v Rotherham, AFC Wimbledon v Blackpool, Fleetwood v Portsmouth, Ipswich v Oxford, Lincoln v Gillingham, MK Dons v Wanderers, Rochdale v Coventry, Shrewsbury v Doncaster, Southend v Burton, Sunderland v Bristol Rovers, Wycombe v Tranmere.

Been taking a look at MK Dons accounts whilst half-listening to a match as dull as dishwater.

The figures are not remotely like the claims made by Marc Iles in yesterday's BN. He's no idea about profit, loss or balance sheets but spouts out as if he's some kind of financial authority.

He's so clueless that he's no idea how clueless he is, yet there are members of the House of Lords who think he's 'esteemed'.

So much for the House of Lords. If they are going to move it, can't they move it somewhere suitable to its uselessness.

It really does seem sad to compare a club like BWFC with all its history to MK Dons but there are interesting comparisons to be made on the financial front. I'll save them for later if I can get round to it.

Watched it on ifollow…..
Same as always ….we lack basic ball control and can't string three passes together. Politic had his worst game in a Bolton shirt IMO.
We shall see what the summer brings but this lot are mid-table League Two at best.
And again I still blame the EFL not the current owners & Staff.

You're lucky you only had sound, I watched on a stream and it was worse than dire, no shape, no desire, no plan, nothing that inspires me to think that KH can manage to turn this around next season, I truly fear we could end up in the National league with Hill at the helm.

Its obvious to all now that we are in a holding role for next season, when we will be in League 2. The only problem is that we may well be in the same mindset that we are now, when the season starts. I get the distinct feeling that we have completely switched off regards ambition, team shape, tactics, and any on-the-pitch ambition. Nothing seems to be being asked of the players, and personal pride is for other teams, not ours. Gathering our resources, and planning for the future is one thing, sitting on our hands waiting for the season to end is another.
For the first time in over 50 years I expect us to lose every week, and, regrettably, I don't really care.

Good summary Glos.

As I've been saying I don't 'get' what is going on.

We have a 'team' of players (most brought in by Hill remember) who all know there is nothing to play for (we are relegated in all but name and have been so since early January when Hill let go our two on loan centre backs and a left back he'd signed - and failed to replace them until the end of the window by which the damage had been done.

I would guess 80% or more of the team won't be with us next year, the better ones will want to play for better paying teams than ours, the worse ones we don't want, leaving us with just a few ok ones - and then it is up to them if they want to stick with us or try their luck elsewhere.

So what have we achieved this season?

Certainly not the basis of a side for next season.

A God awful manger who hasn't impressed me both on and off the pitch.

Kenyon, Phoenix and plenty other big chiefs at the reservation and no Indians (well five I think) who are contracted to be here next season and are over the age of twelve.

Already hard core Wanderers fans of many years who actually go to games, openly talking already of not attending and not feeling guilty about not going, simply because there's nothing to play for, for the remainder of the season.

So in summary, the players and fans aren't bothered and both groups wish the season to be over - with still 16 games (I think, even I can't be bothered to check!) left to play.

Really what was the point to it all?

What has Sharon got out of it other to watch her money fly out the window and continue to do so?

I can't fathom it?

Can you?

No need for that Martin.

We all have our own pet topics, yours is abusing whichever current manager we have at the time.

Bobs beef is with Iles who once again spouted financial stuff - this time about 'the Don's' - which once again is wrong - yet people who follow him believe every word of his it seems.

If we all shut up about our pet footballing related peeve's then we'd only have slipper talk left on here!

And we don't want that at all do we!

It escapes me, Sluffy, how anyone, vaguely the right side of sanity, can think that it makes sense to spend a Saturday afternoon glued exclusively to the latest miserable performance of possibly the worst Bolton Wanderers team in over a century whilst it slides ignominiously into the promised land of the fourth tier of English football.

Not only wrong, Sluffy, just plain stupid. How can you, in one paragraph, say that MKD lost £14m last year and in the very next paragraph say how well its run by caring owners?

But there is some interesting stuff in the MK set up relevant to BWFC. I rather suspect that, because of the similarities, KA may have used MK's £125K directors fees as the benchmark in 2017 and added £400K as a promotion bonus to cover the £400K aggregate payments made to Holdsworth and Quantuma.

By doing this he would have avoided a 32% tax charge on BWFC of £128K and the future consequences of an overdrawn directors loan account.

He didn't draw the £125K btw. £60K was still outstanding when the administrators were appointed.

I guess it boils down to what you value.

I've never understood how some people devote a goodly part of their lives to their club, akin to a religious way it seems to me, where reality and sanity is put to one side in to facilitate their zealotsy towards the club.

It is almost as though they become slavish cults to something that has no real meaning - football is just a game when all said and done.

You don't get any medals for the privilege of spending a chunk of your life and wealth on something that usually someone else owns and what quite often you have little to no say in.

People invest a great deal of emotion into a vehicle than on the whole treats them very badly - yet they still come back for more!

I get the tribal bit, that's why I'm on here - and always will 'follow' the club - but I'll never lose my mind or reason over it.

Football is part of the 'entertainment' business, if you aren't enjoying what is on offer, then simply stop doing it until it changes for the better.

If you were doing anything else, eating a meal. watching a film, drinking a pint, etc - and you weren't enjoying it, you would stop - so why do some people think it is some badge of Bolton honour to continue to suffer through it all - and spending their hard earned, to do it too!

Each to their own and all that but it simply seems pointless to me and something I've never done even from being a child.

I support my club but I've never been a willing slave to it unlike some.

I'm not sure some on here can see the big picture....
We are lucky to even have a club at this point. The survival of BWFC is the only important thing accomplished this season. We are relegated due to the EFL.  The football and players signed are the best we can do under the embargo etc.
Most of the players are nowhere near good enough and half of them will be gone in the summer anyhow.....to be replaced with other journeymen and cast-offs.
The infrastructure of the club can be sorted over the next year or two but on the field we are two season away IMO.

The average home attendances are still reported as 11,000 plus, but what is the actual number of people actually going through the turnstiles?

I would be interested to hear the gestimates of those who attend on a regular basis.

The attendances include all season tickets sold, the last game I went to there looked to around 7-8000 on.
