Our prediction for this League 1 match:
AFC Wimbledon plays host to Doncaster Rovers at their Plough Lane on Tuesday evening. The Dons did well to beat Blackpool in their last home game in the League One, with the team sharing the spoils with MK Dons on the road at the weekend. AFC Wimbledon aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek clash.
The Donny, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Lincoln City. Doncaster are tough to beat at home, but they have been having their ups and downs on the road this season. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Plough Lane, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in three of the previous four meetings between the two clubs in all competitions.
