Last Time We Met MK Dons

20 April 2019

Port Vale make the trip to Stadium MK on Monday afternoon knowing that their place in the Football League is secure for next season, but they will be looking for revenge following the last meeting with MK Dons.

It was back in October 2018 when the two sides last faced off, but it was MK who came out on top at Vale Park thanks to two goals in the opening 45 minutes.

The Valiants did create the first opportunity of the game after just 90 seconds, but Mitch Clark saw his low strike well kept out by Lee Nicholls in the opposition goal.

Chuks Aneke then found the net for the visitors with 23 minutes played after he got on the end of a Baily Cargill cross. The lead was doubled just eight minutes later, with Kieran Agard the scorer on that occasion as he picked out the bottom corner.

It was an uphill task from there for Neil Aspin's men, but they did create a few chances in the second half. Ricky Miller spurned the best opportunity and Nicholls was left with a routine save, but it was relatively plain sailing for MK Dons who claimed the victory. 

There have been 12 meetings between the two clubs to date, with Vale winning four, drawing four and losing four of those. One of those victories came during the Valiants' last trip to Stadium MK, with Alex Jones scoring the only goal of the game in October 2016.

Highlights of that 1-0 win can be found below:
