MK Dons v Bristol City
Sky Bet Championship

Saturday, February 20th (3pm)

Bristol City travel to MK Dons this Saturday (3pm) hoping for a win to leapfrog their opponents in the league table.

All the key information on City's opponents can be found below.

MK DONS
The Dons have suffered a similar struggle to City this season and lie level on points with Lee Johnson’s side. February has seen their form pick up - MK are unbeaten in three and have conceded just once. Robinson still likes his side to play an attractive brand of football and the addition of former City forward Jay Emmanuel-Thomas suits that. MK Dons also signed Jonny Williams on loan in the transfer window, as well as striker Alex Revell.

MANAGER
Karl Robinson – The longest-serving manager in the Championship and third behind only Arsene Wenger and Paul Tisdale from England’s top four leagues, Robinson took charge in the summer of 2010. After two unsuccessful play-off assaults in his first two seasons, the 35-year-old finally achieved the dream of chairman Pete Winkelman by leading the club into the Championship as runners-up to City last term.

STAR MAN
Josh Murphy - Norwich City academy graduate who broke into the Canaries first team at 18-years-old. He scored on his debut as he pulled one back in a League Cup encounter against Watford which Norwich went on to win in extra-time. With first-team opportunities limited, Murphy headed to Wigan Athletic on a month’s loan making five appearances for the Latics. At the start of the season, Murphy signed on a season-long loan at Stadium:MK and is the club’s top scorer with 6 goals in all competitions.

OFFICIALS
Keith Hill is appointed as the man in the middle. He will be assisted by Carl Brook and Akil Howson. The fourth official will be Brendan Malone.

TICKETS
The match is pay on the day.

LAST TIME OUT
Bristol City 1-1 MK Dons - Daniel Powell scored a last-ditch equaliser as MK Dons stole a point at Ashton Gate. City went ahead in the sixth minute as Bobby Reid teed up Jonathan Kodjia to tap in from close range, but substitute Powell fired past Frank Fielding deep into stoppage time to restore parity.

LAST SEASON

FA Cup: Second round (lost to Chesterfield)
