Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Wrexham will be aiming to build on the FA Cup win over Shrewsbury when they take on AFC Wimbledon in the League Two round 28. The Red Dragons rolled over Barrow 4-1 in their last league match and, as a result, the odds for home win have been dropping. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of Saturday’s clash.
The Dons, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from the FA Cup loss to Ipswich Town, with the team beating Oxford United in the EFL Trophy 2-0. AFC Wimbledon and Wrexham seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the horizon. As for the visiting side, midfielder James Tilley is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring a brace in the EFL Trophy triumph.

Based in Kingston upon Thames, AFC Wimbledon are a professional football club that compete in the third tier of English football, commonly known as the League One.
