Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Plymouth and MK Dons go head to head at Home Park in the League One round 19. The Pilgrims are on a six-game losing run ahead of Saturday’s clash, meaning that the lack of confidence could prove to be a big problem for the home team. The Dons, on the other hand, failed to win the previous three league fixtures, but this match could be the turning point for the visitors.
MK Dons were a better side in the 1-1 draw with Peterborough, with veteran attacker Cameron Jerome scoring his fifth goal of the season. Anyhow, the Dons are more of a team than the Pilgrims, and we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the match. It has to be noted that Russell Martin’s troops are eyeing their third away win of the season as they defeated Sunderland and Charlton on the road earlier in the process.
