Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Swindon Town and AFC Wimbledon go head to head at County Ground on Saturday afternoon as both teams aim to return to winning ways. The Robins aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Peterborough, with the team eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground. Zeki Fryers, who suffered a groin injury at the weekend, is unlikely to feature against AFC Wimbledon.
The Dons, on the other hand, are after their second win of the season, and seeing that they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash, both teams to score betting option should be considered. The two teams played out back-to-back goalless draws in the 2016/17 season, but a lively contest is on the cards this time out. Talented midfielder Anthony Hartigan is pushing for a start for the visitors after coming as a substitute in the previous four rounds.
