The match is now scheduled to kick-off at 19:30 BST on Tuesday 7th May, with the game being played at the Broadfield Stadium in Crawley.

The clash was originally pencilled in to take place at 15:00 on Monday, however, the game was postponed after heavy rain deemed the pitch unplayable.

Crawley v MK Dons stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

MK Dons have the historic advantage over Crawley having won five of the 10 head-to-heads between the pair, with the Red Devils winning only three times in that run, which will give them a boost as they look to edge closer to an immediate return to League One. 

The Dons won the last meeting 2-0, although they were beaten 2-1 on their last visit to the Broadfield Stadium.

However, Crawley have been inconsistent at home recently, winning only four of their last 12 games on their own patch, so Mike Williamson will be confident his side can take a lead back to Milton Keynes for the second leg at the weekend.

The Red Devils did brilliantly to finish seventh in the regular season but given that they won only two of their 12 matches against League Two’s top six, it is difficult to see them getting a result against the Dons, who finished fourth and have scored 20 goals in their last six games.

Crawley v MK Dons team news

Crawley team news

Scott Lindsey should have a full squad to choose from on Tuesday and he is unlikely to make many changes from the side who beat Grimsby 2-0 on the final day of the season. 

Nicholas Tsaroulla was dropped to the bench for that game, however, and the Cypriot forward, who scored the opener in the Red Devils’ win over MK Dons in August, could return to the starting XI. 

MK Dons team news

Williamson opted against fielding a heavily rotated side against Sutton on the final day despite the Dons’ position in fourth being unable to change, although they did perhaps have one eye on this clash as they drew 4-4 with Sutton that day. 

With everyone having come through that match without injury, MK Dons will likely field a similar team against Crawley.

One man who was rested against Sutton was club legend Dean Lewington, with the 39-year-old veteran likely to come back into the fold for this semi-final as his wealth of experience could prove invaluable.
