Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Crewe and MK Dons face each other at Alexandra Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting League One game. The Railwaymen are having a season to forget, with key players who left the club in the summer being sorely missed. The rock-bottom side are on a three-game losing run in the League One, and, no doubt, they are low on spirits ahead of the visit of MK Dons. Fit-again midfielder Tom Lowery is pushing for a start after finding the net in the 2-1 loss to Wycombe.
The Dons, on the other hand, aim to climb to the playoffs berth, and they should take advantage of Crewe’s shaky defence. You should bear in mind, though, that MK Dons are eyeing their first win over Crewe since January 2015. Back then the Dons crushed the Railwaymen 5-0, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
