While every weekend is a "crucial match" when your goal is automatic promotion but with Leeds tumbling to eighth in the table after losing four of their last five matches. However in facing the MK Dons it is doubly so and will require a masterful effort against the most productive attack in League One. Orchestrated by Roberto Di Matteo, The Dons look very prepared to continue their promotion run from League Two of last season to the Championship. Leeds will need to bolster their midfield tempo and as The Dons will play a controlling yet patient style but it clearly must be understood that does not mean for them to slow down play and in-fact it needs to be the opposite. Leeds must force the home side out of their comfort zone and push the tempo up and draw to the channels.
Gary McAllister will be without Andy Robinson and Jermaine Beckford with Malcolm Christie is unlikely and David Prutton is in the sin-bin. New signing Mansour Assoumani will definitely be a part of the defenders. Roberto Di Matteo has reported his squad fully-fit at this time respective of new injuries.
Due to travel plans, I will likely re-cap this match on Monday evening (CET) and appreciate your patience during the holiday period.
