Players In-Form

MK Dons forward duo of Scott Twine and Max Watters enter their game against Burton coming off the back of a brace of goals and assists for each of them last week in their 4-1 win over Cambridge United, the duo was two of the highest rated players in the league last weekend, with Twine scoring an 8.19 and Watters an astronomical 8.85. Both will fancy their chances of increasing their goal tally against a Burton side missing starting centre back Deji Oshilaja due to suspension.

Elsewhere Plymouth haven’t lost in the League since match week one and have only conceded three goals in their last six games. Goalkeeper Michael Cooper and centre backs Dan Scarr and James Wilson being ever present in that run building great chemistry in the backline allowing forward Ryan Hardie (6.81) to continue his impressive form in front of goal, the striker is currently sitting on nine goals in sixteen starts for the Pilgrims.

However, Plymouth’s hosts won’t be the pushovers their position in the league table may have you expect them to be. The Valiants results have picked up in recent weeks with three wins in their last four games. However, they will go into the game missing their top scorer Jayden Stockley (6.11) after the forwards picked up a red card last week.
