Player to watch - Aaron Wilbraham: The striker finally looks to have found a happy home at Stadium:mk after several years without any great success in football's lower divisions. Last season he was big man alongside small man Sam Baldock and the pair scored the goals which fired the Dons to the play-offs. He is a real handful for any centre back.

Pub: On the Mount Farm Industrial Estate, a half mile away, the Beacon (Bond Avenue, Bletchley, Milton Keynes, MK1 1PA�) is near a small lake. The pub has pool tables, games machines and TV. It gets busy on match days. Get there early if you want food. Also, on Midsummer Blvd, Milton Keynes, MK9 1EA there is the the Secklow Hundred�, the Med Bar Caf� and All Bar One.

Last league meeting: MK Dons 2, Norwich City 1 (14 August, 2009): Chris Martin went from hero to villain as City failed their biggest test of the season so far. Martin put City ahead with only 17 seconds on the clock, but conceded the second-half penalty which gave MK Dons the lead and the points. The young striker will feel aggrieved - the TV replays appeared to show him winning the ball fairly, but the hosts were worth their win as they dominated large parts of a match in which City were struck by bad luck at regular intervals.

City connection: Luke Chadwick joined MK on loan and then permanently in January.
