MK Dons Team News & Formation

MK Dons have had a mixed start to the season, winning two and losing three of their first five games. They have a game in hand on the rest of the league because they were scheduled to play Bury on the first day of the season.

MK have won three of their last five home games, drawing one and losing the other two. This season, they have also been a highly entertaining side to watch, with over 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last nine matches across all competitions.

Their last home victory came two weeks ago against a strong Lincoln City side. That afternoon, George Williams and Callum Brittain scored for Paul Tisdale’s men.

On Saturday, Keiran Agard and Jordan Bowery are expected to lead the line for The Dons, with Ryan Harley remaining in midfield. Away fans are likely to pay the most attention to club legend Dean Lewington. The former Wimbledon captain will almost certainly keep his place at left-back.

With OKBET, MK Dons are priced at 1.95 to win. Given Wimbledon’s recent form, these are generous odds, and this is one of my predictions for the match.

AFC Wimbledon Team News & Form

Wimbledon have struggled to get going this season after surviving relegation on a dramatic final day last season. Walley Downes’ team has not won in eight games in all competitions and is currently third from bottom in League One. Their only points this season have come from a 0-0 draw with Wycombe last weekend and a 1-1 draw with Accrington.

Wimbledon, like MK, has been an entertaining side to watch in terms of goals. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of the club’s last ten matches across all competitions. Unfortunately, they’ve also lost six of their last eight games. One of my match tips is to bet on over 2.5 goals being scored on Saturday at 1.85 with bet365.

Walley Downes will almost certainly field a team similar to the one that drew 0-0 with Wycombe last weekend. Joe Piggot and Kewsi Appiah are expected to start at the front. AFC Wimbledon are currently priced at 3.75 to win Saturday’s match. I wouldn’t bet on it, especially given the team’s winless streak.

Head to Head: MK Dons vs. Wimbledon

MK Dons vs. Wimbledon is one of the most heated games in English football, with clashes between the two often being dramatic affairs.

MK Dons have a much stronger eleven than Wimbledon, with players such as Keiran Agard and Ryan Harley bringing a wealth of experience and skill to the table. Wimbledon have played a scrappy brand of football this season and will be undone by MK’s quick attack.

MK Dons manager Paul Tisdale has overseen three home victories in his last five games.
