Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Milton Keynes Dons desperately needed a win against Rochdale on Tuesday evening and they managed to get one. The Dons put an end to their three-game winless run in the League One, with the team moving away from the relegation zone. However, the game against Wycombe is of big importance for the hosts as they are six points clear of the bottom three ahead of Matchday 31.
The Wanderers, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a heavy 4-0 loss to Peterborough United, with the team beating Blackpool 2-1 in midweek. The promotion-chasing side aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but beating MK Dons on the road is easier said than done. Russell Martin’s troops recorded four wins in the previous five home games in the League One, which is the main reason why we predict that they are going to grab something from the Wycombe clash.

Highlighted Team (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
