History of the Colchester United v Milton Keynes Dons fixture

Colchester U. prepare to entertain Milton Keynes Dons at Weston Homes Community Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having managed to conjure up a win from 4 of the previous 6 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Weston Homes Community Stadium was just last season, in September 2008, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-3 winners in a League One match.
