It was a League One final day of contrasting fortunes for both Wycombe Wanderers and MK Dons. Gareth Ainsworth’s men snuck into the top six after seeing off Burton 2-1, with MK Dons doing them a huge favour as they smashed Plymouth 5-0 to ensure the Pilgrims traded places with Wycombe, teeing this tie up.
Despite that emphatic battering inflicted by Liam Manning’s Dons in Devon, they were unable to creep into the automatic promotion places, with both Wigan and Rotherham avoiding final-day slips as they beat Gillingham and Shrewsbury respectively with little to no fuss. So, the Dons will have to do it the hard way.
Ainsworth is looking to bounce back to the Championship at the first time of asking, but he faces a side against whom he has suffered three defeats to this season, losing both the home and away matches in League One by an identical 1-0 scoreline and losing to them in the EFL Trophy. Could they get the job done on their fourth attempt?

Wycombe Wanderers vs MK Dons match stats
Scott Twine enters this match for the Dons in simply sensational form. The 22-year-old former Southampton academy product is second only to Sean McConville of Accrington Stanley (17) for most assists in League One this campaign (13), while he has also notched a rather impressive 20 goals, fifth in the division’s ‘Golden Boot’ equivalent. That means he has been directly involved in more direct goalscoring contributions than any other player in the third tier this term (33), alongside Will Keane for champions Wigan (also 33, 26 goals and seven assists).
Two wins and two cleans sheets for MK Dons this campaign over Wycombe, first winning on home soil through a Troy Parrott penalty after Anthony Stewart saw red in the opening 45 minutes, before that man Scott Twine got the match-winner at Adams Park back in January.
