Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a 3-1 win over AFC Wimbledon, MK Dons will look to stay in the playoffs berth when they welcome Gillingham to their Stadium MK on Saturday afternoon. The Dons quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Morecambe, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence, but they should not stop now. Cameron Norman limped off with injury in the last league match, with Kyran Lofthouse likely to step up.
The Gills, on the other hand, have been in a fine form in the League Two of late, with the team winning three of their last four league matches. Gillingham and MK Dons seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Milton Keynes.
