Leeds United will face Milton Keynes Dons at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday.

Milton Keynes Dons manager Karl Robinson has told the club’s official website why he is relishing the game against Leeds United this weekend.

The Dons will take on Leeds away from home at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

“I don’t think they come any bigger than playing Leeds United at home,” Robinson told the club’s official website.

“Going to Elland Road is as big as it gets in English football, given the history of the football club and the support that they have.”

MK Dons are 20th in the Championship table at the moment with 22 points from 24 matches.

Robinson’s side are just a point above the bottom three and need to get something from the game at Elland Road.

The Dons will head into the match on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Birmingham City away from home at St. Andrew’s Stadium.

Meanwhile, Leeds find themselves 12th in the Championship table at the moment with 31 points from 24 games.

The West Yorkshire outfit are just nine points behind Ipswich Town, who are sixth in the standings and occupy the final playoff spot.

Steve Evans’s side will head into the encounter against MK Dons at Elland Road on the back of a 2-2 draw with promotion-chasing Derby County at home.
