Our prediction for this League 1 match:
DW Stadium will host Tuesday’s League One game between Wigan Athletic and MK Dons, the two teams who sit in the playoffs berth ahead of Matchday 14. The Latics aim to build on back-to-back wins over Gillingham and Bolton, and they a triumph over MK Dons should see them climb to automatic promotion places. A man to watch in the home team will be Ireland international James McClean, who scored a brace at the weekend.
The Dons, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team suffering back-to-back defeats to Doncaster and Shrewsbury in the previous two league fixtures. Since Wigan have found their best form of late, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Liam Manning should opt to make changes to the team that failed to impress in the defeat to the Shrews.
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 (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.
