Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a 2-2 draw with Harrogate, AFC Wimbledon will look to get back on course in the League Two when they face Salford City on Matchday 41. The Dons are safe for now, with the team sitting in 18th place in the standings, and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Monday’s clash. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Ethan Chislett, who scored a brace in the last league match, while Johnnie Jackson has no fresh injury worries.
The Lions, on the other hand, aim to regain their spot in top six. Since Salford want this win more than AFC Wimbledon, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the visiting side. Both McAleny and Lund are pushing for recalls to the starting XI after the duo came off the bench in a 2-0 loss to Leyton.
Highlighted Player (Chris Gunter):
After spending one and a half season at Cardiff City, Chris Gunter signed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur on 1 January, 2008. However, he did not play an important role in the team during the second half of the 2007/2008 Premier League campaign, making just two league appearances for the White Hart Lane outfit.
Seeing that he was not considered first-team regular in the 2008/2009 season as well, Gunter decided to join Nottingham Forest on Loan in March, 2009. Four months later he signed a permanent deal with the Reds and he stayed at the club until July 2012, when he completed a move to Reading. The Wales international signed a three-year deal with the Royals and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular. It has to be noted that he made 44 league appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign.
Chris Gunter was born in Newport, Wales on 21 July, 1989 and he made his debut for the Welsh national team in a friendly match against New Zealand on 26 May, 2007, while helping the Dragons reach the Euro 2016 semis in France.
Highlighted Team (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
