Stadium Stadium MK
Time at Club:
MK Dons appointed Robbie Neilson on 2 December 2016 after agreeing terms with Scottish side Hearts. The young manager replaced the long-serving Karl Robinson who left the club six weeks earlier.
The Dons parted ways with long-term manager Karl Robinson via the classic "mutual consent" following a 3-0 home defeat by Southend United. The result left the struggling club just one point and two places above the dreaded relegation zone after 15 games.
The Dons had finished in the top-half of the table in the last six campaigns in League One, before finally winning promotion to the Championship in 2014/15, for the first time since their foundation in 2004, however they lasted just a season in the second-tier.
MK Dons were controversially born out of the old Wimbledon team which moved to Milton Keynes in 2004. The move wasn't popular with the Wimbledon fans but they soon built up a decent fan base in Milton Keynes and they now look like they have a bright future.
Milton Keynes Dons have reaped 5 wins in the last 10 games, beating Walsall, Southend United, Charlton Athletic, Gillingham and Coventry City. 2 draws against Swindon Town and Port Vale and defeats to Sheffield United, Scunthorpe United and AFC Wimbledon has seen them score 13 at an average of 1.3 goals per game while shipping 11.
