At the start of the season, MK Dons would have taken a playoff spot without a second thought if it had been offered to them, but there are certainly mixed feelings about finishing in third place.
Liam Manning‘s team have been sensational throughout this campaign, collecting 89 points from their 46 fixtures, but only winning three of their final six fixtures resulted in them missing out on the automatic spots by a point.
On a positive note, they concluded the campaign with the demolition of Plymouth Argyle, who subsequently missed out on their playoffs themselves after such a humbling.
Scott Twine scored four times during the 5-0 victory at Home Park, taking his tally to 20 goals and 13 assists in the third tier this season, and the playmaker has a huge part to play in the end-of-season finale.
MK Dons also have fond memories of the corresponding league fixture, Twine netting the only strike of the contest on January 29.
However, the Chairboys ended the campaign on a 12-match unbeaten run, collecting a total of 28 points to edge out Plymouth courtesy of their final-day triumph at Burton Albion.
Although a draw would have proven enough, Jordan Obita’s winner five minutes from time has maintained Wycombe’s momentum, even if just seven goals have come from the last five outings.
Ainsworth may be prepared to stick with the Wycombe XI which dug in deep to claim all three points at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday.
Middlesbrough loanee Lewis Wing is the most likely to come into the starting lineup, but Dominic Gape is expected to retain his spot in midfield.
Chris Forino-Joseph may also feature in the centre of defence if he recovers from the injury which kept him out of the Burton game.
Manning will also feel like he has little reason to make any unenforced alterations to the side which cruised past Plymouth.
Key players were also rested during the closing quarter of that contest, and it leaves the likes of Connor Wickham having to settle for a place on the substitutes’ bench.
