Southampton host rivals MK Dons this Saturday hoping that the 10 day break has recharged our squad's batteries and kept them fresh for the battles ahead.

The Dons will be itching to show why they are regarded as one of the best away teams in the league and will undoubtedly make things difficult for us.

These upstarts need putting in their place, preferably several divisions down and replaced by AFC Wimbledon. Stuff 'em on Saturday.

I'd love to see AFC Wimbledon rise high enough to be able to put them in their place themselves.

Have a feeling that this could be a really hard match for us to win. Dons are doing well and are on a great roll as they have closed the gap on all of us that are above them. With the exception of Brighton that is.
