Match Preview

Clayton added to Dons squad Adam Clayton will be in the MK Dons squad when Walsall make the trip to stadium:mk. The Leeds midfielder signed on loan until the end of the season on Thursday and is set to be on the bench as manager Karl Robinson names an unchanged side from the XI which beat Peterborough on Monday night. Goalkeeper David Martin returned from an ankle injury against Posh and will start while on-loan Fulham midfielder Keanu Marsh-Brown (groin) is fit again. The club is still seeking clearance from FIFA for new signing Shaun Williams to feature while utility man Jude Stirling has left to join former Dons boss Martin Allen on loan at Barnet. The Dons' win on Monday night has left them just three points behind the automatic promotion places. Walsall will include loan signings Marc Laird and Jordan Cook in their squad for the trip. Millwall midfielder Laird and versatile Sunderland forward Cook both arrived on deals until the end of the season ahead of Thursday`s deadline and are set to make their debuts. Whether they start at stadium:mk remains to be seen after manager Dean Smith saw his side come back from 2-0 down at home to Hartlepool last weekend to secure a stunning 5-2 victory. The catalyst for the turnaround was 56th-minute substitute Emmanuel Ledesma and the Argentinian forward is certainly pushing for a starting berth this time around. His chance may well come with striker Jonathan Macken rated as 50/50 due to the calf strain he sustained early on against Pools. Full-back Aaron Lescott continues to miss out with his knee ligament strain despite hoping to return in time for the fixture.

Match Report

Saddlers end Dons victory chain MK Dons' five-match winning run came to an end as they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Walsall. Matt Richards' volley had given the Saddlers a half-time lead but Peter Leven levelled with a cheeky penalty to stretch the Dons' unbeaten run to eight games. Sam Baldock scuffed a good early chance straight at Saddlers keeper Jimmy Walker, who then produced a good diving save to keep out Daniel Powell's low drive. But Walsall were dangerous on the break, David Martin denying Emmanuel Ledesma and Julian Gray before Richards capped a swift counter-attack to put them ahead after 29 minutes. Ledesma robbed Peter Leven of possession on the halfway line before playing in Gray and, when his shot was parried by Martin, Richards was on hand to volley in the rebound. Ledesma and Richards then had long-range strikes pushed wide by Martin, while Dons forward Powell blazed over from 10 yards on the stroke of half-time. Leven equalised for the Dons from the penalty spot six minutes into the second half, cheekily dinking the ball down the middle after Luke Chadwick had been tripped by Manny Smith. Gray then blasted a 25-yard drive against the crossbar for Walsall, while Baldock was denied one-on-one by Walker and substitute Angelo Balanta somehow hit the bar from four yards late on for the Dons.
