Milton Keynes play host to Shrewsbury Town at The National Hockey Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The The Dons have drawn both of the previous games against their opponents, however.
The last time the two teams met at Milton Keynes was amazingly over twenty years ago, in November 1985, the The Dons carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Second Division match.
