Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wham Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Accrington Stanley and Milton Keynes Dons, the two teams who sit in the bottom half of the League One standings ahead of Matchday 6. Accrington aim to escape the relegation zone and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their first win of the season. However, seeing that they will be without suspended attacker Sean McConville against Milton Keynes Dons, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the relegation-threatened team.
MK Dons, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 4-0 home loss to Peterborough United and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the Wham Stadium clash. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils on day 6 of the new League One campaign.
Highlighted Player (Billy Kee):
Born in Loughborough, England on December 1, 1990, Billy Kee is a professional footballer who plays for Accrington Stanley as a striker. However, despite being born in England, the 175-cm-tall attacker represents Northern Ireland on the international stage. Billy Kee was called up to the senior Northern Ireland squad in September, 2009 for a World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia, but he has yet to make his debut for the national team.
The Accrington Stanley man scored 13 goals for the Accy in the 2018/2019 League One campaign, but that did not help the team secure promotion to the Championship as they finished the season in the 14th place in the standings.
Billy Kee started his youth career at Leicester City academy, while playing for the likes of Torquay United, Burton Albion, Scunthorpe United and Mansfield Town at senior level. His contract with Accrington Stanley should expire on June, 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (MK Dons):
Based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes Dons are a League One club that welcome their rivals at Stadium MK. The venue was opened in 2007 and can hold up to 30,500 spectators. Milton Keynes Dons play their home games in white shirts and white shorts, whilst their away kit is red.
The Dons are one of the youngest clubs in England as they were founded in 2004, but they are well known for youth development. English attacker is the club’s all-time top goal-scorer, netting 62 goals in 165 appearances for MK Dons. Dele Alli, who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur, is the most famous footballer to have played for the Milton Keynes Dons, netting 18 goals in 62 appearances for the club in the league.
Speaking of notable coaches, it has to be noted that former Liverpool superstar Robbie Fowler and ex German international Dietmar Hamman were in charge of the club.
