Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Plough Lane will host Wednesday’s football game between AFC Wimbledon and Peterborough United. The hosts aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Crawley Town in the FA Cup, but they face an uphill task in the midweek clash against the promotion-chasing side. The Dons were beaten by Gillingham in their last league match, and it is no surprise bookies see them as underdogs in the Plough Lane showdown.
The Posh, on the other hand, suffered a shocking loss to Chorley in the FA Cup at the weekend, meaning that they will be fully focused on the League One in the remainder of the season. Peterborough are undisputedly more of a team than AFC Wimbledon, and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field. In their last meeting at the venue the Dons emerged triumphant, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.
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.
Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
