The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

PRE­STON are in pole po­si­tion to se­cure the fi­nal au­to­matic pro­mo­tion spot af­ter this con­vinc­ing win.

Mean­while MK Dons’ sea­son ap­pears to be spi­ralling out of con­trol af­ter such a strong start.

Karl Robin­son’s side were sec­ond-best through­out this one, even though they had a num­ber of chances to score. But they are clearly miss­ing the long-de­parted Benik Afobe and now in­jured Dele Alli.

This de­feat is the Dons’ third in the space of a week af­ter go­ing down to strug­glers Coven­try last Satur­day and play-off hope­fuls Ch­ester­field dur­ing mid­week.

And it’s now six wins in seven for Simon Grayson’s men as they look to be gath­er­ing pace and form just at the per­fect time of the sea­son. But the Li­ly­whites are ten points off lead­ers Bris­tol City – al­beit with a game in hand – so they’ll need to make sure they main­tain their cur­rent form if they’re to have any hope of mak­ing top spot their own come the end of the sea­son.
