Our prediction for this League 1 match:
MK Dons and Ispwich Town go head to head at Stadium MK on day 4 of the new League One campaign. MK Dons have been anything but impressive at the start of the season, with the team collecting only one point in total from the first three league fixtures. Seeing that the hosts head no more than two goal attempts in the 2-0 defeat to Crewe, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on Martin Russell’s troops.
The Tractor Boys, on the other hand, made a flying start to the season, and they will be looking to keep their 100% record intact when they take on MK Dons on Saturday afternoon. Since Ipswich Town have been impressive at the back of late, a low-scoring affair is on the cards at Stadium MK. Anyhow, the promotion-chasing visitors are closer to picking up all three points from the game than the hosts.
