Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Blackpool made a flying start to the season, but they are on a four-game winless run in the League One ahead of the visit of Milton Keynes Dons. The Seasiders are determined to return to winning ways in the English third tier, but the game against MK Dons will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
Blackpool are sitting in the play-offs berth in the League One standings, but they are only three points clear of their Saturday’s rivals. Paul Tisdale’s charges quickly bounced back from back-to-back defeats to the likes of Peterborough United and Accrington Stanley, with the team beating AFC Wimbledon 2-1 in their last league match. The Dons are tough to beat at home, but given their poor away record in the League One, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the Seasiders’ party at Bloomfield Road.
