Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Sunday’s football game at Pirelli Stadium pits together Burton and MK Dons, the two bottom-table sides. The Brewers aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Cambridge United and you should know that they are eyeing their tenth home win of the process. Burton, though, have nothing to play for in the last game of the regular season, which is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered. Thierry Latty-Fairweather limped off with injury in a 1-0 win over Cambridge United, with Ben Radcliffe likely to step up.
The Dons, on the other hand, failed to win the previous seven league matches, but a triumph over Burton should see them avoid relegation to League Two. Since MK Dons looked sharp in front of goal in a thrilling 4-4 draw with Barnsley, we predict that they are going to pick up vital three points from the decider. A man to watch in the away team will be Mohamed Eisa, who scored a brace in the last league match.
