We held off this preview covering the visit to The Mornflake Stadium until after the transfer window has closed. Here’s our preview.
Last League Game
A second home win in a row, a 100% record at StadiumMK, and sitting top of two leagues, after the opening fixture in the EFL Trophy.
The Dons did it again, early goal, this one another from Daniel Harvie after an electric burst of pace from Jonathan Leko, followed up by a header by Warren O’Hora from a corner. Despite being grabbed in a rugby tackle, Woz powered onto the cross and guided the ball into the right-hand corner.

Options are far less limited today than they were last time out against Doncaster. With the arrival of Payne, Harrison, and Stewart yestersay and with Lewington’s hour against Chelsea midweek looking like a trouble-free return, it would seem Graham Alexander is starting to have options as we have a bit more depth to our squad.
Leko could well start with the message to up the performances and get goals, or things are going to change.
Crewe play a passing game and have busy players who move and work for each other. This season, so far, they prove difficult to beat having only lost the one game. The draw specialists with three out of five.
The Dons Line-Up
This is the most difficult of the lineups to predict so far. We think it’s unlikely neither Harrison nor Stewart will start, and to be honest, if Lewington is OK, he will take a seat on the bench, and Stewart won’t feature.
MacGillivray, Norman, Tucker, O’Hora, Smith, Harvie, Williams, Gilbey, Robson, Leko, Eisa.
Bench: (from) Harness, Lewington, Harrison, Payne, Devoy, Grant,
