Yeovil Town are back in SkyBet League One action for the final time this coming Sunday.
The Glovers are away at MK Dons with a 12:15 kick off – the game could have major implications in the race for promotion.
The Dons, along with Preston could be promoted automatically this weekend with one of them having to settle for the play offs.
North End currently lie in 2nd place on 89 points with MK Dons in 3rd on 88. Preston travel to Colchester who are one of six teams still fighting off relegation.
Yeovil are currently the only team guaranteed to be relegated from League One with any three from Leyton Orient, Colchester, Crewe, Crawley, Notts County and Coventry joining them on Sunday.
The Glovers are guaranteed to finish rock bottom of the pile, currently eight points separate them from the side in 23rd.
With everything to play for at both ends of the table, it should make for an exciting final day with over half the matches having knock on effects for either the promotion or relegation positions.
The MK Dons’ form statistics are rather impressive; Karl Robinson’s side have won their last four in a row and have not suffered defeat since a March 7th loss to Preston.
It’s not just that the Dons are winning, they’re scoring goals for fun too. 15 in their last four outings including a 6-1 trouncing of Leyton Orient.
In fact, no team has scored more goals on their home patch this season than the Dons, an eye watering 55 home goals have gone in at Stadium MK.
As for Yeovil, the last outing saw Paul Sturrock oversee his first loss as Yeovil Manager.
Port Vale winning 2-1 at Huish Park despite Gozie Ugwu’s 5th goal of the season.
That win secured Vale’s League One status.
Prior to that, the form has been decent; a pair of 1-0 wins over Sheffield United and Swindon pretty much ended their hopes of automatic promotion as well as lifting spirits around Huish Park.
The one place still a bit gloomy is the physio’s room and it has had two more residents this week. Sam Foley limped off against Port Vale and looks almost certain to miss out while Sturrock rates
Byron Webster’s chance of playing as ‘touch and go’.
The new Yeovil boss has promised to play his full strength side on Sunday despite looking for opportunities to rate and judge his current squad ahead of next year.
His main decision will lie in goal with Chris Weale fit and active again, he will go head to head with Artur Krysiak for the number 1 spot.
MK Dons are reporting no new injury concerns, but, if their promotion hunt is successful, it’ll be the last time Deli Ali is seen in a Dons’ shirt.
The youngster is set for a big money move to Tottenham in the summer.
Earlier in the season, when the sides met at Huish Park in October, the Dons came through 2-0 winners.
Goals from top scorer Will Grigg and Daniel Powell secured the points in a feisty affair.
Eight players were booked in all, with Ben Nugent getting yellow carded twice and thus missing out on the last 30 minutes.
Rewind back to the Glovers’ promotion campaign of 2012/13 and the home match reads slightly better.
A 2-1 win at home (a Paddy Madden double) was sweet reward for a defeat at Stadium MK earlier in the campaign.
In fact, since 2010 results between these two sides have continually flipped between Yeovil wins and Dons wins.
If you believe in omens, then that should mean a green and white victory on Sunday.
The Glovers may only have pride left to play for, but they won’t be leaving anything behind at Stadium MK. Tickets are available on the day to away supporters and are priced at just £20 for adults.
