Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Kassam Stadium will host Tuesday’s League One game between Oxford United and MK Dons. The Yellows did well to put an end to their three-game losing run, with the team beating Fleetwood on Friday. Oxford United aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and they have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at the Dons. The likes of Gorrin, Baldock, Browne, and Agyei should miss out with injuries for the home team.
MK Dons, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Sheffield Wednesday. The visitors are eyeing automatic Championship promotion, and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Mo Eisa is a major doubt after limping off with injury against Sheffield Wednesday, with Theo Corbeanu pushing for a start.
Highlighted Player (James Henry):
James Henry was born in Reading on 10 June, 1989, but he grew up in Woodley. He began playing football at his home-town club Woodley Saints, but he made progress during his spell at Reading’s youth academy. Henry is a winger who is capable of playing as a centre midfielder as well, but he failed to score for Reading in 10 league appearances for the club.
After ending his loan spells with the likes of Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, Norwich City and Millwall, he signed a permanent deal with the Lions on 28 July, 2010. Henry signed a three-year deal with Millwall and he made his home debut in a 4-0 win over Hull City.
It has to be noted that Henry played for both Scotland and England at youth level in the past, but he has yet to make his debut for the first team. Henry was born in England, but his parents are Scottish and, as a result, he is eligible to play for both England and Scotland.
Highlighted Team (MK Dons):
Based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes Dons are a League One club that welcome their rivals at Stadium MK. The venue was opened in 2007 and can hold up to 30,500 spectators. Milton Keynes Dons play their home games in white shirts and white shorts, whilst their away kit is red.
The Dons are one of the youngest clubs in England as they were founded in 2004, but they are well known for youth development. English attacker is the club’s all-time top goal-scorer, netting 62 goals in 165 appearances for MK Dons. Dele Alli, who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur, is the most famous footballer to have played for the Milton Keynes Dons, netting 18 goals in 62 appearances for the club in the league.
Speaking of notable coaches, it has to be noted that former Liverpool superstar Robbie Fowler and ex German international Dietmar Hamman were in charge of the club.
