Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on the Valley when Charlton Athletic and MK Dons face each other in the League One round 15. The Red Robins quickly bounced back from a 4-2 loss to Burton, with the team beating Ipswich Town on the road, and, no doubt, the triumph gave them a confidence boost. The capital club aim to regain their spot in top two, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at MK Dons. Omar Bogle is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the triumph over Ipswich.
The visitors, on the other hand, were in action in the FA Cup at the weekend, with the team beating Barnet on the road thanks to Cameron Jerome’s goal. The experienced attacker returns to the starting XI against Charlton Athletic, but defender Jordan Houghton is likely to miss the game with injury. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on Charlton Athletic, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home.
