MK Dons: All eyes on Boxing Day after Bristol Rovers postponements

    Milton Keynes Dons fans will be keeping their eyes on the club's Boxing Day fixture with Bristol Rovers after the fellow League One club were forced to postpone their next two fixtures.

    In an official statement by the club, it was revealed that an outbreak of Covid-19 cases, which includes first-team players and staff, means that the Gas are unable to fulfil their next two league fixtures.

    It means that their matches against Charlton Athletic, originally scheduled for this evening, and Oxford United, previously set for Saturday 19th December, will have to be rescheduled.

    It means that Bristol Rovers, who are now managed by former Dons boss Paul Tisdale, will not play a match until Boxing Day - with a trip to Stadium MK on the cards.

    While this fixture is still expected to go ahead, all eyes will be on the situation at the South West England club and whether or not this outbreak has any lingering impact on their ability to field a full-strength team when they travel to Milton Keynes the day after Christmas.

    In accordance with English Football League regulations, the circumstances surrounding Bristol Rovers' postponements will be investigated and more will become clear the closer to Boxing Day it becomes, with the hope being that no further postponements are required.
