Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Crown Ground will host Saturday’s football game between Accrington and MK Dons. The hosts showed character in a 2-2 draw with Shrewsbury Town, with Cassidy scoring the equalizer in the dying minutes of the match. The Accy recorded five wins from the previous seven league fixtures, and it is more than obvious that they are determined to book their place in the League One playoffs.
Accrington Stanley are eyeing their fifth home win of the season, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for John Coleman’s troops. The Dons, on the other hand, have been impressive on the road of late, with the team beating both Barnet in the FA Cup and Charlton in the League One without conceding. Even though defender Jordan Houghton remains in the recovery room, we predict that the visitors are going to grab something from Saturday’s match as they have been in a fine form of late.
