Milton Keynes prepare to entertain Tranmere Rovers at Stadium:MK on Saturday afternoon, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having managed to conjure up a win from 5 of the previous 7 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Stadium:MK was less than a year ago, in January 2010, the The Dons carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League One match.
