MK Dons vs Plymouth ArgyleEnglish League One, KO: 19:45 Dec 8, 2021, Stadium MK
MK Dons will look to continue their recent rise as they host Plymouth Argyle in a midweek English League One fixture. Plymouth appear to be struggling at the moment and should find things difficult against the in-form hosts.
MK Dons have been on the ascendancy in recent weeks and have claimed four wins in their last five League One matches. They are up to sixth on the table and could move as high as fourth with a win on Wednesday.
Liam Manning’s men earned a 4-0 victory over Morecambe in their previous League One fixture with Matthew O’Riley netting a brace. Their last outing was a shootout victory over Leyton Orient in the EFL Cup after playing out a 0-0 draw in normal time.
MK Dons have a solid record at home, where they have lost just once in their last eight League One matches. They have claimed six wins in that run and triumphed 1-0 over Burton Albion in their previous league fixture at Stadium MK.
Plymouth Argyle warmed up for the trip to MK Dons with a 2-1 victory over Rochdale in the FA Cup on Sunday. They took an early lead through Jordan Garrick and had to wait until four minutes from time before Luke Jephcott struck the winner.
