Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Out-of-sorts Milton Keynes Dons will be aiming to put an end to their five-game goalless run when they take on Tranmere Rovers at their Stadium mk on Saturday afternoon. MK Dons have been struggling in front of goal of late, but the upcoming league fixture could be the turning point for the bottom-table side. Paul Tisdale’s men aim to take advantage of the fact that Tranmere Rovers suffered a massive 5-0 defeat to Sunderland at the weekend, and we believe that the time has come for them to get back on course.
The Super Whites experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the Stadium of Light clash; therefore, we are positive that they are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Tyne and Wear. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Jordan Bowery, who is eager to find his goal-scoring touch.
Highlighted Player (Joe Mason):
Joe Mason is an experienced attacker who plays for Milton Keynes Dons in the League One. Born in Plymouth, England on May 13, 1991, Joe Mason is a product of Plymouth Argyle football academy. The 178-cm-tall forward continued playing for the Pilgrims at senior level, but after scoring 10 goals in 53 appearances for the club in the league, he moved to Cardiff City in the summer of 2011, signing for the Bluebirds for a fee of £250,000.
In the winter of 2016 he signed a contract with Wolverhampton and it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Bolton, Burton Albion, Colorado Rapids and Portsmouth on loan as well before moving to Milton Keynes Dons before the start of the 2019/2020 season.
The pacey attacker, whose main position is centre-forward, is eligible to play for both England and Republic of Ireland due to his dual citizenship and he has 3 caps with the Ireland U21 team.
Highlighted Team (Tranmere):
Based in Birkenhead, Merseyside, Tranmere Rovers are a professional club that compete in the League One. Tranmere were founded back in 1884 under the name of Belmont FC, with the football arms of cricket clubs Lyndhurst Wanderers and Belmont coming together. The club recorded their first win later in 1884 as they outclassed Brunswick Rovers 4-0.
Nowadays Tranmere Rovers play their home games at Prenton Park, the venue which can hold up to 15,567 people. The Rovers wear white shirts and blue shorts in home matches, but back in the 19th century orange and red were the dominating colours on their kit.
Tranmere fans see Bolton Wanderers as the club’s main rivals, but they have built a small rivalry with Chester City and Everton as well. The Prenton Park outfit did well to make it to the League Cup final in the 1993/1994 season, but Aston Villa proved to be a big catch for them in the title game.
