AFC Wimbledon vs Blackpool Prediction

AFC Wimbledon were humiliated in front of their traveling faithful last week after Oxford United ran riot over them with a whopping 5-0 scorecard. The hosts were virtually invisible in the final third, to be frank, and deservedly made the trip back home without even a consolation goal to their name.

Miserably, the home team are now without a taste of success in their past six games. With just thirty points in the bag, AFC Wimbledon are currently on the verge of falling into the relegation zone.

In all honesty, Blackpool have not been coping any better in the third division, as of late. The visitors have been recording back to back defeats in their past two clashes, the most recent of which was at the hands of Bristol Rovers.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests have been a nervous bunch away from home. Disappointingly, Blackpool have not come out on top in any of their outings since their 1-0 win over Doncaster, way back in September.

In sharp contrast, AFC Wimbledon have stumbled just twice in their previous eleven games here. Taking into account that the hosts are also unbeaten in their past two meetings with this foe at home, Blackpool have little or no chance of coming away with the win.

However, the visitors have salvaged a point in half of their last ten outings. Given that the hosts have shared the spoils seven times already at home, it will be safer to back a double chance in this one.

Furthermore, Blackpool have been tame in the final third, especially on the road. In fact, the visitors have scored more than two goals in just one of their outings so far.

Meanwhile, AFC Wimbledon have kept a clean sheet in two of their past four games here. Additionally, six of the last ten clashes at this stadium have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.

Considering that their previous two h2h meetings here have also witnessed no more than a goal or two on the final scorecards, expect goals to be scare come Saturday as well.
