Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Alexandria Stadium will host Saturday’s League Two game between Crewe Alexandra and MK Dons. Crewe aim to recover from the EFL Cup elimination to Port Vale, with the team eyeing their only second league win of the season. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of MK Dons, but forward Christopher Long is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
The Dons, on the other hand, are on a three-match winning run in all competitions and given their excellent display in the EFL Trophy 4-1 win over Chelsea U21, away victory should be considered. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the visiting team will be Mohamed Eisa, who has already netted four goals in the League Two this season. In their last meeting in a competitive match MK Dons defeated Crewe 2-1.
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.
Speaking of notable coaches, it has to be noted that former Liverpool superstar Robbie Fowler and ex German international Dietmar Hamman were in charge of the club.
