I actually look forward to games again now instead of the dread of last season - and a few seasons before that, too.

Got well and truly stuffed last time we met at the CG - a 3-0 Dele Ali inspired Franchise rout.

Franchise fans seem very proud that, according to them, they have the best defence in the league. Bollocks to that, a resounding 3-0 win today with goal machine Doughty, Crazy Legs Adebayo and Matt Taylor doing the business.

Need to start controlling both halves of the game and putting the chances away first rather than coming from behind. So iím Optimistic that headway is being made so for me itís a close 2-1 to town.

MK Dongs currently sit 2nd in the table, unbeaten (in the league) with the least amount of goals scored against then (2) but have only scored 5 goals, Tisdale has got them off to a good start.

Thier form so far -

Oldham a W 2-1
Bury h W 1-0
Charlton h W(LC) 3-0
Crewe a D 0-0
Grimsby h D 1-1
Exeter h W 1-0
Boremuff a L(LC) 0-3

We have only suffered a defeat in 1 game so far away at Lincoln in our 5 league games.

I doubt the Woolfman will start today unless Lancashire is carrying an injury so I expect the same side as last week at FGR.

Overall vs MKD at the CG we have played 11 games, w3 d3 l4 f8 a11.

We have only had 1 win at home against them since 2006 covering 7 matches a 1-0 in 2012 the winner scored by Matt Ritchie.

Going to be a tough game today but at least Tisdale won't have them hoofing long and kicking us hard as Lincoln did so should be a better game of football.

I think MKD will be a little too strong for us, I would take a draw.

2-1 defeat with Doughty scoring in front of 6,895 with 455 Dongs fans there.

My memory of that 3-0 game is that everyone was waiting to be torn apart by Alli and we ended up getting torn apart by Daniel Powell instead. He's now at Northampton and got relegated last season. Funny the different directions careers take.

Want to beat MK more than anyone else in this league but I think it'll be a tough afternoon.

Going for some second half Alzate magic to win it for us 2-1 in a tight game.

Can't really be arsed to see Dean Lewington again but it is what it is.

A good time to start changing an overall poor league record against this lot.

One win in the last 13 league games against them.
Dean Lewington has played in all 20 of our league encounters.
Our equivalent stalwart is Nathan Thompson who managed 6 appearances.

Should be an interesting game.
An early goal for us might induce a loosening of the cravat in the opposition technical area and a change in game plan.

I'd forgotten he'd be out there today, I don't really do hating opposition players anymore, that's a younger man's game, he is the exception that proves the rule.  Horrible sod, hopefully McGlashen can give him the run around and get him sent off.

It was 1-1 when we last played them at the County Ground, and I can see a similar outcome today.

I too have a totally rational hatred of that player Tom

For PV's benefit the Wolfman is not eligible to play todayHope we don't get off to our usual slow, laborious start and concede early cos that fucking drum will be unbearable.  I'll go 2-2.
