For our Wimbledon vs. Stevenage prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
Two sides in dire need of a win meet in League Two this week as AFC Wimbledon host Stevenage.
AFC Wimbledon currently sit 15th in League Two with ten wins, twelve draws and ten losses from thirty-two games this season.
Dons have had an up and down season form-wise having started the campaign dreadfully before abruptly improving to a fairly dramatic degree.
They have, though, starkly declined in recent weeks and they enter this game winless in their last five matches having lost drawn three and lost two of their last five matches.
Most recently, Wimbledon fell to a 2-1 defeat away at Gillingham, a fairly damning defeat considering their opponents league position regardless of form.
Their home form is slightly more impressive given they’re unbeaten in their last five on home soil, but considering they’ve only won one of those five games there’s still a decent amount of concern heading into this one.
Moreover, they’ve been struggling in front of goal recently having scored just four times in their last five outings.
Wimbledon are in dire need of a win and while they entertain a side gunning for automatic promotion here they can at least be encouraged by the fact their opponents are suffering from similar struggles in terms of form.
Stevenage are currently 3rd in League Two with sixteen wins, nine draws and six losses from thirty-one games this season.
Steve Evans’ side have had a fine season for the most part having spent the majority of the campaign in and around the automatic promotion spots, but a recent wobble in form has a few fans sweating.
They enter this game having failed to win any of their last five matches in the league, drawing two and losing three.
Their most recent game saw them lose 0-1 at home to Tranmere Rovers, a result that confirmed their second consecutive loss.
Like their opponents, they’ve scored just four times in their last five matches and manager Evans will be concerned by his side’s impotence in front of goal.
Their away record is poor too, having drawn four and lost one of their last five games on the road.
Stevenage need a win here with several sides below them breathing down their neck, as their automatic promotion spot is under serious threat. Wimbledon away, for any serious promotion contender, is a perfectly winnable fixture.
