Barnsley's visit to MK Dons could result in goals at both ends

Barnsley's visit to MK Dons could result in goals at both ends

MK Dons v Barnsley (NH)

I've gone for a 1-1 draw in my preview of this match and I'm happy to add it as the FA Cup game for our Going For Goals selections.

Three of the previous five MK Dons games have seen both teams score and I anticipate a really closely-contested clash here.

Barnsley are Going For Goals winners in their previous two games so get this game selected.

Crystal Palace v Middlesbrough (CH)

Games involving Crystal Palace tend to deliver goals at both ends and we feel Saturday's clash at Selhurst Park will be no different as the high-flying Eagles look to boost their promotion hopes against a Middlesbrough also in the hunt to go up.

Ian Holloway's side are the second highest scoring side in the Championship behind Watford, with whom they drew 2-2 in an open game last time out, and will fancy their chances to find the net yet again.

And although Boro head into this clash on the back of a 1-0 victory over Leeds, that is the only clean sheet they've kept since Boxing Day while Tony Mowbray's side can also be considered pretty dangerous up front with 50 goals in 31 games.

Bristol Rovers v Wycombe (NH)

Both of these sides are in good form in League Two and that should make for an interesting game.

Bristol Rovers have been Going For Goals winners in three of their previous four matches and their survival bid is now in good shape.

Wycombe scored four last weekend but conceded three in midweek so we should see plenty of action in this clash.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
