MK Dons v DERBY

It's our first ever visit to Milton Keynes at their new ground on Saturday. Should be around 4000 Derby fans making the trip. Not a bad effort, the early kick off for sky sports probably kept the numbers down from the 6000 that Leeds took.

Franchise fc play in the league cup tonight. Quick turn around for them to play us Saturday. We should be able to take advantage of that.

Oh yeah, glad we're out of that league cup. It's a bit of a pain in the arse when your aiming for promotion. Middlesbrough and Hull went through as well, keep those games piling up

4000 would be a good effort for a early kick off TV game at this stage of the season.

Wonder how many that played tonight will play on saturday? I have to be honest and says wouldn't have a clue what their starting 11 would normally be. I've not seen anything of them yet this season.

Should be winning this game. Keep a settled team and go out and get at them.

I reckon we should get a 3-0 win. A couple of goals for Martin and one for Keogh.

Had a look at the teams that played Leeds and Southampton, that seems about right. They look to have rested the attacking players, but the defence seemed pretty much the same.

I see Craig Bryson is still not going to be available for this one, becoming a bit of a worry. He would be a good option to come off the bench to try and get a midfielder up in support of Martin.

Ince is fit though, so should definitely be straight back in for Wiemann.

Bryson was supposed to be out for a month, it's already stretching to two.

I fancy this to be the game we finally give someone a bit of a thumping. 4-0 Derby, Martin with 2, Ince and Johnson.

If Ince comes in for Wiemann, I actually think that is then our strongest team. Discounting Hughes as unavailable for the foreseeable.

Nice optimism with the 4-0 if Hughes gets fit at the back end of the season, will be interesting
How he is used.

Bringing in Ince would definitely give us our strongest team, gives us the most attacking threat, whilst still looking solid.

Hughes would be interesting, but there shouldn't be a need to rush him back so he can be introduced slowly through sub appearances to start with.

Would also like to see Dawkins on the bench to offer another attacking option. Clement seems to like to have 3 defenders on the bench.

Simon Dawkins seems to be the forgotten man. But then again I thought that about Cyrus Christie and he has come back.

PC says he hasn't decided who will play right back yet. Shouldn't even be one to make. The way he tinkers he will probably drop Fozzy and play Warnock as well.
