Our prediction for this League 2 match:
MK Dons will look to put an end to their seven-game winless run in the League Two when they face Barrow on Matchday 13. MK Dons do not seem to be at their sharpest, but Saturday’s game could be the turning point for the home side. Keep in mind, though, that defender Daniel Harvie misses the match through suspension following his sending-off in a 2-1 loss to Gillingham.
The Bluebirds, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with promotion hopefuls Notts County at the weekend, while losing to Morecambe in the EFL Trophy. Barrow are on a three-game losing run on the road in all competitions and seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Graham Alexander’s troops. Barrow defender Tyrell Warren has been struggling with injury of late.
