Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After suffering elimination in the FA Cup round 3, Forest Green will look to give fans some cheer when they take on MK Dons on Matchday 28. The Green Army are eager to escape the relegation zone, and this seems like a perfect opportunity for the hosts to get back on course. Midfielder Jordan Garrick should be recalled to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in the midweek defeat, while there are no fresh selection worries in the home team.
Meanwhile, the Dons head into the match following a goalless draw with Lincoln. Mark Jackson’s men aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the League One, but seeing that they have already suffered seven defeats on the road this season, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s encounter. Warren O’Hora limped off with injury in a goalless draw with Leyton, with Zak Jules likely to step up.
Highlighted Player (Dominic Bernard):
After spending his youth career at Tredworth Tigers and Birmingham City, Dom Bernard signed a professional deal with the Blues. However, he did not see any game action with Birmingham City at the senior level as he was instantly sent on loan at Aldershot Town.
After making 35 appearances for the Shots in the league, Dom Bernard joined Forest Green in the summer of 2019. He made his debut with the Green Army against Oldham Athletic on the opening day of the 2019/2020 season. Bernard, who quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Forest Green, has one cap with the Republic of Ireland U18 team while making two appearances with the U17 team.
He was born in Gloucester, England on March 29, 1997, and he wears the number 3 shirt at Forest Green. His main position is right back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a centre-back as well.
Highlighted Team (MK Dons):
Based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes Dons are a League One club that welcome their rivals at Stadium MK. The venue was opened in 2007 and can hold up to 30,500 spectators. Milton Keynes Dons play their home games in white shirts and white shorts, whilst their away kit is red.
The Dons are one of the youngest clubs in England as they were founded in 2004, but they are well known for youth development. English attacker is the club’s all-time top goal-scorer, netting 62 goals in 165 appearances for MK Dons. Dele Alli, who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur, is the most famous footballer to have played for the Milton Keynes Dons, netting 18 goals in 62 appearances for the club in the league.
Speaking of notable coaches, it has to be noted that former Liverpool superstar Robbie Fowler and ex German international Dietmar Hamman were in charge of the club.
