Llera to make presence felt; FOOTBALL.
MILTON KEYNES had a significant aerial advantage in the first leg of their League One semi-final play-off and they could make it pay from set pieces in the return leg against Scunthorpe tonight.
Aaron Wilbraham's goal at Glanford Park came courtesy of a dead-ball delivery which was flicked on by two MK Dons players before the big striker equalised for the visitors seven days ago.
Roberto Di Matteo is likely to try to exploit that avenue again and centre-back Miguel Angel Llera's goal minutes could be going reasonably cheap at six.
Llera played his part in Wilbraham's goal in the first leg and the Spanish brute also missed a golden opportunity at Scunthorpe to add to his two goals this campaign when he headed over in the second period.
All eyes will be on the forwards like Wilbraham for MK Dons and Paul Hayes and Gary Hooper for Scunthorpe, but Llera is a danger whenever he comes up for setpieces and can provide good value with very little downside.
