Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Plough Lane pits together AFC Wimbledon and Stockport County, the two teams who aim to stay in the playoffs race. The Dons aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, but seeing that they failed to find the net in the previous two league fixtures, home win should not be considered. Even though there are no fresh injury worries in the home team, midfielder Courtney Senior could sneak into the starting XI.
Meanwhile, the Hatters aim to move closer to the playoffs places. Stockport County struggled in front of goal in a goalless draw with Bradford City as well, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. Dave Challinor is unlikely to make changes to the team that faced the Bantams in midweek.
Highlighted Player (Nikola Tzanev):
Nikola Tzanev is a New Zealand goalkeeper who started his youth career at Crystal Palace. Tzanev then moved to Brentford and he continued wearing the red and white shirt at senior level. After ending his loan spell with Lewes, the 195-cm-tall shoot-stopper moved to AFC Wimbledon in 2017.
During the 2018/2019 campaign he played for Potters Bar Town as a loan player, but at the end of the season he returned to AFC Wimbledon. He made his League One debut with the Dons on August 3, 2019 in a 2-1 loss to Rotherham United.

The Dons goalkeeper has 3 caps for the New Zealand U20 team as well. Nikola Tzanev was born in Wellington on December 23, 1996 and his preferred foot is right.
