Town will be hoping to produce the goods in-front of a bumper crowd when they host MK Dons at The County Ground in a crunch clash on Saturday (3pm Kick-Off).
The Reds have given their survival hopes a huge boost after winning their last two outings, with the club launching the #PackTheCG campaign in order to create an electric atmosphere for tomorrow’s huge game.
MK Dons are also in good form having carved out a four-game unbeaten run, while they have also secured victories in their last two games.
Goals from Luke Norris and Raphael Rossi-Branco were not enough to prevent Town from suffering a 3-2 defeat the last time they faced MK, with a Kieran Agard double and a Nicky Maynard strike handing the hosts all three points at Stadium MK in December 2016.
Town and MK have done battle on just twenty occasions in all competitions and The Dons are able to boast the better head-to-head record with ten wins to their name, compared to The Robins’ six.
FULL RECORD V MK DONS:

Tomorrow’s game is a #PackTheCG event as we look to create an electric atmosphere and give the boys as much support as possible.

A WORD FROM BOTH CAMPS:
Luke Williams, Swindon Town Head Coach: “There is a real focus around the place and the players are hopefully stepping up to this challenge.
“Robbie Neilson has done his job very well and MK have almost undoubtedly secured their League One status. They can now start planning for next season.
“The fans tomorrow will make a positive difference if we help them by giving them something to cheer about.”
Robbie Neilson, MK Dons Manager: “Swindon have had a difficult season, as we have, buy they’ve picked up recently and got two wins on the bounce.
“They’ve changed their shape a little bit and they like to dominate a lot of the play. We need to make sure we stop them doing that.
“It’s going to be a tough one but hopefully we can go down there and get another three points.”
