FootyMAD's Sheffield Wednesday match preview

History of the Sheffield Wednesday v Milton Keynes Dons FC fixture

Milton Keynes face a trip to Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 19 games played, Dons have recorded 7 wins, and Sheff. Wed. have come away with 8 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in April 2003, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4 - 2 thriller, in a League Division One match.
