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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
