History of the Darlington v Milton Keynes Dons fixture

Milton Keynes travel to take on Darlington at 96.6 TFM Darlington Arena on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 4 games played, The Dons have recorded 1 wins, and Darlington have come away with 2 victories.

The last time the two teams met at Darlington was amazingly over twenty years ago, in December 1982, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 2 winners in a Fourth Division match.
