Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Aesseal New York Stadium when Rotherham United and MK Dons face each other in the League One round 37. The Millers dropped two points in a goalless draw with Shrewsbury Town, but they are still on the right track to secure automatic promotion. The league leaders aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, and the bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday’s clash. Both Ogbene and Wiles are pushing for a start, with Harding and Rathbone likely to drop to the bench.
MK Dons, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the League One. The visitors are high on spirits ahead of the derby, and we predict that they are going to pick up one point from the match. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Mohamed Eisa, who scored his 9th goal of the season in a 2-0 win over Bolton.
Highlighted Player (Josh Vickers):
A product of Arsenal's youth academy, Josh Vickers, is an English footballer who plays for League One Club Lincoln City. The 6ft 2-inch goalkeeper's first appearance came for Isthmian League outfit Canvey Island having joined them on loan in August 2013. He went on to play over 30 games for the club before returning to Arsenal to sign his first professional contract.
His time at the Gunners was shortlived, however, and involved another loan to Conference South club Concord Rangers before making a permanent switch to Premier League side Swansea City in August 2015 on a two-year contract. In his time at Swansea, Vickers made zero appearances for the first team but did feature in the club's under-18 and under-23 team.
Vickers spent his 2016/2017 season on loan to Barnet, where he made his League One debut against Cambridge United on the 6th of August, 2016. Born on the 1st of December, 1995, the 23-year-old has featured 47 times for his current club Lincoln, on a contract that expires on the 30th of June, 2020.
