MK Dons manager Karl Robinson gives his opinion on Leeds United's squad

Milton Keynes Dons face Leeds United at stadium:mk on Saturday.

Karl Robinson has spoken highly of the squad Uwe Rosler has assembled at Leeds United on Milton Keynes Dons' official website

MK Dons are preparing to face Leeds on Saturday, and Robinson admits that he is expecting a tough battle against a side he feels is brimming with talent.

The 35-year-old has been impressed with the high-profile players the Whites have at their disposal, and is predicting that his Dons side will have to be on the top of their game if they are to get anything from the weekend fixture.

“Leeds are a club that boast a tremendous history," he said. "Uwe’s built a very talented squad which includes a number of big-name players. We’ve had some great battles with Uwe’s sides over the years and I’m certainly expecting this game to join that list.”

Despite the impressive team that Leeds have put together, they have rather been held back by their inability to turn draws into wins this season.

The Whites have proven to be resilient, but their solitary victory has come against Derby County, and Rosler will be keen to get his side back to winning ways as quickly as possible.

They will be followed by over 6,000 fans on their way to stadium:mk, but picking up a result will be a test as the Dons have proven their credentials at a Championship level.

Robinson's men are still adapting to competing in the second tier, for the first time in their history, but triumphs over Bolton Wanderers and Rotherham United have shown that they are able to overcome opponents at this level.
