Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wigan Athletic will be looking to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Swindon Town when they face AFC Wimbledon at the DW Stadium on Matchday 28. The Latics suffered a dip in form, but a win over the Dons could see them escape the relegation zone in the League One standings. Wigan failed to win the previous four home games in the English third tier, but we believe that the time has come for interim manager Leam Richardson and his men to put an end to the negative trend.
Viv Solomon-Otabor is sidelined with injury, while both Matthew Palmer and Gavin Massey are rated doubtful for the game. The Dons, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in 2021. AFC Wimbledon are eyeing their first ever win over Wigan Athletic in the League One, but seeing that the Latics are eager to return to winning ways on home soil, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Merton empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Nathan Cameron):
Born in Birmingham, England, on November 21, 1991, Nathan Cameron is a professional footballer who plays for Macclesfield Town as a defender. Cameron is a product of the Coventry City football school, and he continued wearing the sky blue shirt at the senior level.
He made 48 appearances in the league for Coventry City, but he played for the likes of Nuneaton Town (loan), Northampton Town (loan), and Bury as well before joining Macclesfield Town. Nathan Cameron has one cap for the England U20 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
The 188-cm-tall defender made his Macclesfield Town debut in the League two in a 2-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons on November 17, 2018. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 25 shirt at Macclesfield Town.
Highlighted Team (AFC Wimbledon):
Based in Kingston upon Thames, AFC Wimbledon are a professional football club that compete in the third tier of English football, commonly known as the League One. AFC Wimbledon were formed by former Wimbledon FC supporters in 2002 following the FA decision to allow the club to relocate to Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire, only 90 kilometers north of Wimbledon.

AFC Wimbledon play their home games in blue shirts and blue shorts, whilst the colour of their away kit is yellow.
