MK Dons v Fleetwood Town Betting Tips & Odds

In our MK Dons v Fleetwood Town betting preview we look at the best possible betting tips between the two sides.


Uwe Rosler’s Fleetwood Town look to push into the play-offs on Saturday afternoon, as they take on Robbie Neilson’s MK Dons at Stadium MK. MK Dons don’t look all that much improved from last season but have seen their best run of games in recent weeks and take positives from staying clear of the relegation zone. Fleetwood Town were hailed for their solid style of play in the last term but can’t do quite so well this time around. That being said, they left it until late to move up the table in the previous attempt, so hopes are high as they begin to push for those all-important play-off positions in the League One table. These sides differed massively in their separate aims last season but faced a close encounter in February, as Fleetwood Town scored just once to snatch three points in the remaining half an hour of play.

The Dons need to increase the gap between them and the bottom three

Last season saw a major change for MK Dons, who decided that time was up for manager Karl Robinson – a man who’d led out the team for seven years and was a likeable figure for their fans. It wasn’t just down to a change in philosophy though, as his methods were no longer working at the club, leaving a big changing of the guard that fans had no choice but to accept. They spent almost three months looking for a suitable replacement and were adamant on the decision to bring in Hearts manager Robbie Neilson. He didn’t make waves at the club but achieved a more than respectable twelfth place in the table, with hopes that they could do even better in a first full term with the Scot at the helm. There’s been some minor alterations but not enough to see a better set of results.

The current term has seen Robbie Neilson’s men opening up with two successive defeats, with their first win coming in week three, where they overcame Gillingham at home. Since that time, they’ve picked up four wins and four draws from thirteen games played, landing them at an uninspiring sixteenth in the table but safe from the relegation zone by a distinct four point gap. Some big players left in the summer, including experienced striker Nicky Maynard who moved on to Aberdeen, leaving some gaps in a far more inexperienced squad. They went through a better run of results in September, where they were unbeaten in five games over all competitions but that came to an end in being defeated at home to Bradford City. Both cup ties had MK Dons coming out on top over Hyde United and Oxford United, which could be a confidence boost for the league.

Fleetwood Town are level on points with teams inside the top six

Enjoying a burst of energy in the last season season saw Fleetwood Town firing up the League One table, with a view to pushing late into those desirable top six places in the table. Sheffield United and Bolton Wanderers were clear league leaders but even they felt unnerved by the sudden rise in the table from Fleetwood Town, who went from strength to strength under Uwe Rosler as the weeks rolled on. They managed to get to those all-important play-off positions, finishing up at fourth but couldn’t snatch the promotion they’d so admirably fought for, losing the play-offs over two legs against Bradford City, where just one goal made the difference. They come into this season as one of those sides expected to push for the top two places in the table, but have been yet to come close so far.

After their opening twelve games in all competitions, Cod Army weren’t looking all too promising, taking six wins and a draw, suffering all too many losses in the process. A pretty straight-forward three points over relegation-threatened Morecambe saw a better showing already, as it’s prompted five wins and three draws from nine games, with more of a view to the side so many celebrated in the previous campaign. Falling to too many draws against lesser sides and going through an unacceptable amount of inconsistent periods continues to tarnish Fleetwood’s efforts of promotion but they’ve done similar in the last seven days’ set of cup fixtures to what MK Dons have done, winning in both to achieve a welcomed break. Devante Cole looks like a top prospect, netting eight goals at just twenty-two years of age.
