MK Dons host Accrington Stanley this weekend, where they will look to continue their push for promotion. That said, they suffered a 1-0 defeat to this week’s visitors in the reverse fixture.
The Dons won all four of their games in December, but they have now lost 50% of their last six games. Their most recent loss was a 1-0 away defeat in a huge game against Barrow, where both teams missed their chances.
MK Dons are still very much in contention for a play-off spot at the end of the season, as they’re placed sixth. The Dons are dangerous in attack, as they score 1.62 goals per game, and they also concede just 1.28, which is the sixth-best defensive record in the league.
The ‘Owd Reds have been in decent form recently, only losing once in their last five matches, with three of them ending in a clean sheet. However, their most recent game ended in a drab 0-0 draw against Grimsby.
A win this weekend would see Accrington Stanley move three points behind MK Dons in the table, but at this current moment, they’re in 11th. The ‘Owd Reds aren’t particularly impressive in attack, as they score 1.45 goals per game. However, they are strong at the back, as they only concede 1.31.
This game should be rather tight, but MK Dons will be desperate to bounce back from their loss.
A home win is the most likely outcome for this tie, especially as they’ve already won nine times at home this campaign.
The final prediction is MK Dons 1-0 Accrington Stanley.
