Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Milton Keynes Dons and Doncaster Rovers face each other at Stadium mk on Saturday afternoon. MK Dons did well to hold promotion-chasing Rotherham United to a draw at the weekend, with the team moving one step closer to securing the League One survival. Even though the Dons will be without suspended attacker Fejiri Okenabirhie against Doncaster Rovers, we predict that they are going to grab something from the match.
The Donny did well to beat Wycombe 3-1 in their last league match, but given their anything but good away record, we are not tempted to put our money on the visitors. Share of spoils is on the cards at Stadium mk, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. In the first half of the season the two sides played out a 1-1 draw at the Keepmoat Stadium.
