Our prediction for this League 2 match:
MK Dons and Tranmere Rovers will lock horns at Stadium MK in what is expected to be an exciting League Two encounter. MK Dons produced a brilliant performance in the season opener, with the team outplaying Wrexham 5-3 on the road, but they failed to upset Wycombe in the EFL Cup round 1 on Tuesday evening. Anyhow, the Dons are widely expected to find the net in Saturday’s clash as they looked sharp in front of goal at the weekend.
Midfielder Ethan Robson is widely expected to return to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in the EFL Cup defeat. The Super Whites, on the other hand, eliminated Barnsley after penalties in their EFL Cup opener, but they will have a big fish to fry against MK Dons, who have turned their Stadium MK into a real fortress. Both Harvey Saunders and Connor Jennings return to Tranmere’s starting XI.
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.
