MK Dons 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday – Underway at Stadium MK

Last updated: Saturday, 06 August, 2022, 15:04

3 mins: A really shaky start for Dons

From letting an early cross drop between the centre-backs, allowing Bannan to get a strike on goal in the opening 30 seconds, to Bradley Johnson dawdling on the ball and almost giving up another chance, it has not been a good start from an MK Dons perspective.

A look around the arena this afternoon

Are Dons ‘down and dirty’ or just a bit unwashed?

The new MK Dons shirts by Castore have certainly split opinion and got chins wagging. Whether you like them or hate them, you have to admit they’re unique!

This week, chairman Pete Winkelman came out in defence of the ‘down and dirty’ shirt, saying they will only be sticking around for a season.

How we think MK Dons could line-up

Let’s see how wrong we’ll be!

Manning on the challenge of facing Wednesday

MK Dons head coach Liam Manning says he is excited by the prospect of taking on Sheffield Wednesday at Stadium MK on Saturday, with both sides looking to get their first wins of the season

It’s a big afternoon everyone should look forward to. There will be a good noise in the place, the pitch is looking fantastic and the players have trained really well this week. We have to bounce back as a group now, and I’m confident we can go into the game tomorrow we’ll step up and deliver ‘us’.

We know about Sheffield Wednesday, the size of the club, the fanbase, the fact they are recruiting players from teams going up to the Championship, but for me it’s about us, trying to impose our style, and play with a bit of confidence, style and energy and get on the front foot. That’s when we’re at our best.

Wednesday suffering a striker shortage

With Lee Gregory sent off last week in their 3-3 draw with Portsmouth, Wednesday manager Darren Moore confirmed striker Michael Smith is also confirmed to miss the game at Stadium MK this afternoon.

Injury news from the MK Dons camp

Josh McEachran looks set for a spell on the sidelines after limping out of the game against Cambridge United in the first half last week

We know Mo Eisa, Daniel Harvie and Tennai Watson, who recently had surgery on his hamstring, are out for a while, but MK Dons were dealt more bad news this week with Josh McEachran’s injury picked up against Cambridge is worse than feared and he will be out for a while.
