Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After rolling over Rochdale at the weekend, Peterborough will be looking to regain their spot in top two when they take on MK Dons at Stadium MK. The Posh are a real force to be reckoned with at home, with the team suffering a loss in each of their last three away games in the League One. A man to watch in the away team will be Jonson Clarke-Harris, who scored a hat-trick in the 4-1 win over the Dale.
MK Dons, on the other hand, aim to escape the danger zone in the League One standings. The hosts came from behind to share the spoils with Burton in their last league match, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Peterborough. The Posh regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend; therefore, we predict that they are going to record their 5th away win of the season.
