Recent respective form guides

Milton Keynes Dons FC's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Dons have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Brentford's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Bees have hit 4 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Milton Keynes are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 12 points from their 12 games thus far. Brentford are holding the final promotion place in the Coca-Cola League One, and have accumulated 23 points from the 12 games they have played so far.
