Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Ipswich Town and MK Dons face each other at Portman Road in what is expected to be a close League One encounter. The Tractor Boys failed to impress in a goalless draw with Rochdale, with the team failing to take a shot on target in the Spotland Stadium clash, but despite the draw, they remained in the playoffs race. Over the years Ipswich have turned their Portman Road into a real fortress, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their 12th home win of the process.
Flynn Downes remains on the sidelines with injury, while both Freddie Sears and James Wilson are rated doubtful for the game. MK Dons, on the other hand, have little to play for in the season finale as they have slim chances of booking their place in the playoffs. Given their display in a 2-0 loss to Crewe, punters can definitely find value in betting on the Tractor Boys.
Highlighted Player (David Cornell):
Born in Waunarlwydd, Wales on March 28, 1991, David Cornell is a goalkeeper who plays for Northampton Town in the League Two. The 180-cm tall shot-stopper is a product of the Swansea City football school, but he did not make any appearances for the Swans at senior level.
Cornell played for the likes of Port Talbot Town, Hereford United, St. Mirren, and Portsmouth on loan before signing a permanent contract with Oldham Athletic in the 2015/2016 season. In the summer of 2016, he joined Northampton Town on a two-year deal.
Speaking of his international career, David Cornell has three caps with the Wales U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. The Northampton Town goalkeeper wears the number 1 jersey, and his preferred foot is right. He has a contract with the Cobblers until June 30, 2020.
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.
