Both teams go into Saturday’s game in need of the three points in a real relegation six-pointer at the start of the final push of the season. Fulham are in desperate need of a revival after a winless run that stretches back six matches has left them a point above MK Dons and the relegation zone. Top scorer, Ross McCormack, will be hoping to lead Fulham’s bid for survival and that will need to start this weekend. A loss to the MK Dons would leave Fulham two points adrift of safety with seven games remaining of the season and the Dons would leapfrog the struggling London side. This is the most important week of the season for the MK Dons as well as they play fellow relegation candidates Rotherham the week after. Anything less than four points would leave the Dons in real danger of slipping back into League One at the first time of asking. The Dons are in slightly better form than Fulham but the recent exceptional form of Rotherham means that it is almost a two horse race for the escape from relegation. This makes Saturday’s fixture one of the most important of the season for both sides and could easily decide the destination of either side for next season.
