Our prediction for this League 1 match:
AFC Wimbledon will be aiming to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to MK Dons when they host Morecambe to their Plough Lane on Matchday 28. The Dons are eager to win the relegation six-pointer, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Morecambe. Keep in mind, though, that defender Nesta Guinness-Walker is sidelined through suspension for the hosts.
The Shrimps, on the other hand, failed to shock Tottenham in the FA Cup round 3. Morecambe, though, recorded a thrilling 4-3 win over Doncaster in their last league match, and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the away side will be Cole Stockton, who scored a brace in the triumph over the Donny before the FA Cup defeat.
Highlighted Player (Nikola Tzanev):
Nikola Tzanev is a New Zealand goalkeeper who started his youth career at Crystal Palace. Tzanev then moved to Brentford and he continued wearing the red and white shirt at senior level. After ending his loan spell with Lewes, the 195-cm-tall shoot-stopper moved to AFC Wimbledon in 2017.
During the 2018/2019 campaign he played for Potters Bar Town as a loan player, but at the end of the season he returned to AFC Wimbledon. He made his League One debut with the Dons on August 3, 2019 in a 2-1 loss to Rotherham United. Speaking of his international career, Nik Tzanev made his New Zealand debut in a 1-0 win over Chinese Taipei on June 5, 2018.
The Dons goalkeeper has 3 caps for the New Zealand U20 team as well. Nikola Tzanev was born in Wellington on December 23, 1996 and his preferred foot is right.
