Milton Keynes Dons' Carl Baker: Leeds United supporters are 'amazing'

Milton Keynes Dons take on Leeds United on Saturday.

Milton Keynes Dons midfielder Carl Baker has told CitiblogMK of his great respect for Leeds United's supporters.

Baker has played against Leeds on numerous occasions throughout his career, during his time with Stockport County and Coventry City, and says that their followers have always impressed him.

As he prepares to take on Leeds again this weekend, Baker says that he is looking forward to the atmosphere that the Whites supporters will help to generate at stadium:mk. 

“I’m really looking forward to Saturday. I’ve played against Leeds before and the atmosphere is always electric. Their fans are amazing and our fans at home have been amazing so far too so all the lads are buzzing for that one.

“September has been a big month for us, with some big games and they don’t get much bigger than this.

“We’re playing well at the moment so hopefully our luck will change on Saturday and we’ll give the fans something to go home happy about.”

Leeds' support-base is regularly heralded, and they are expected to take thousands of fans to Milton Keynes at the weekend.

The travelling hoards will be hoping to see their team bounce back, too, after they were beaten 1-0 by Ipswich Town in their most recent outing. 

Prior to that, Uwe Rosler's side had been unbeaten, and they will be keen to get back on track as soon as possible. 

MK Dons, meanwhile, have made a decent start to life in the Championship, following their promotion from League One last season, but they head into this match having lost their last three league games.
