The Complete History Of Our Trips To MK Dons

15 November 2018

The Silkmen have made the journey to face MK Dons on three previous occasions and ahead of Saturday's fourth visit we take a look back at each of these.

The first time that we travelled down to Milton Keynes was back in March 2007, as Paul Ince's side looked to continue their remarkable great escape act.

Played at the National Hockey Stadium on a bitterly cold Tuesday evening, the former Manchester United and England midfielder was left to rue a host of missed chances as The Dons ascended to fourth place in the League Two table after claiming a 3 - 0 victory.

First half strikes from Izale McLeod and Clive Platt put the hosts firmly in the ascendancy, yet the visitors rallied in the second period as they fought to overturn the deficit.

Despite this, a late Tommy Lee own goal completed the home side's victory and rekindled their ambitions of automatic promotion.

The next time that we made the journey to Milton Keynes was in January 2008 - once again, in artic conditions.

Paul Ince had changed allegiances during the previous summer and he would have been wondering if his decision was the correct one with just three minutes on the clock as Michael Symes hit a glorious thirty yard volley into the top corner of the net.

Our last visit to Stadium MK was back in November 2009, as we were drawn to face The Dons in the FA Cup First Round.

Substitute Lewis Gobern scored three minutes after being introduced to send Ince's side through to the next round - but Macc certainly did not just make the numbers up.

Govern fired in the rebound, after Jose Veiga had superbly thwarted Jermaine Easter's thunderous effort and despite Emile Sinclair coming close on numerous occasions for the visitors, the solitary goal proved to be crucial.
