For our Bristol Rovers vs. MK Dons prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
MK Dons are hoping to climb away from the League One relegation zone as they travel to face Bristol Rovers this weekend.
Bristol Rovers currently sit 12th in League One with ten wins, seven draws and eleven losses from twenty-eight games this season.
Joey Barton's men have been up and down this season and have seriously threatened to make a run at the top six, but it has never materialised as they7 ultimately lack the consistency to achieve anything remarkable this season.
They enter this game amidst a poor run of form, too, having lost each of their last three games on the bounce, with their most recent game a 5-1 hammering away at Morecambe in the league.
The result was Rovers' worst of the season given Morecambe's place in the table and effectively confirmed they lack what it takes to be a play-off contender.
Their home form is still fairly decent, mind, having won three and lost two of their last five games on home soil in all competitions, so they'll have to hope they can fall back on that here.
A home game against a struggling and relegation-threatened MK Dons side is an absolute must-win for Bristol Rovers here and despite their own poor form they should do just that.
MK Dons currently sit 20th in League One with seven wins, four draws and seventeen losses from twenty-eight games this season.
It's been an abysmal campaign for a side that are usually a perennial promotion contender, with most Dons fans hoping the season ends as quickly as possible with survival secured.
They enter this game having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five matches in the league, with their most recent game a 0-2 loss to Exeter City making it two losses on the bounce.
Their away record is slightly better, however, having won two of their last four league matches on the road.
MK Dons have already lost twice to Bristol Rovers this season, 0-1 in the league and 4-1 in the EFL Trophy, so things do not bode well here despite Rovers also being in poor form. Expect MK Dons to fall to a third successive defeat here.
