Forest Green Rovers are once again in League Two action tomorrow when they make the trip to MK Dons and aim to continue their unbeaten run.

Following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Port Vale, Mark Cooper and his side will be hoping to push on and try to claim all three points at Stadium MK.

Here is all you need to know ahead of the game:

What we said:

“We're aware we've got a tough task tomorrow - they're probably the biggest club in the league in terms of where they're at and their squad so we're fully aware that it's going to be a tough test,” said FGR boss Mark Cooper.

"I'm sure MK Dons will have a really good season. I think if you're in and around them then you won't be far away. Big club, big aspirations, so we're aware that it's going to be a tough afternoon.

"We know that they've got some really good players but so have we. We're going to go there and try and get a good result and win the game and let's hope we're on the right side of it."

What they said:

MK Dons manager Paul Tisdale said: “Forest Green have made some sensible singings. They look like they are improving as a team and have the capability of continuing to play the really good football, which they had last year.

“They are team I think can beat anybody on their day with the way they play – I think we need to have our wits about us and we should believe what we can do but we shouldn’t underestimate them at all.”

Injury news:

Forest Green Rovers:

As has been the case for all games this season, FGR remain injury free going into tomorrow’s encounter, but they will miss Farrend Rawson for the next three matches, after he picked up a red card against Port Vale at the weekend.
