History of the Milton Keynes Dons v Gillingham fixture

Milton Keynes are ready to welcome Gillingham to Stadium:MK on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 5 of the 10 previous games, with the The Dons winning just 4.

The previous match played between the two at Stadium:MK was more than three years back, in April 2006, with Gillingham inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the The Dons in a League One match.
