Bury vs MK Dons
England – League Two
Date: Saturday, 12th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Gigg Lane (Bury).
One of the most, maybe the most important tie for both of these teams this season, as they desperately push for promotion to League One. Just one point separates them at the top-most tier, which ensures automatic qualification to the higher league.
In MK Dons, we have the best defensive line of the competition, while in Bury we have the most potent frontline. The reverse fixture, which took place in August, resulted in a home win for the Dons.
Both sides have had contrasting fortunes in the weeks preceding this tie. The latest match was a win for either, but before that Milton Keynes had a run of three winless games, while the Shakers came up with three straight unbeaten matches.

Bury vs MK Dons Prediction
The match will be fiercely fought between the two titans of League Two. Promotion is the ultimate objective of both these groups, and not an inch will be conceded in the fight leading up to that. Whoever wins this tie will have a great advantage over the other in the race for the top three spots, which guarantees entry into the third tier of English Football, and for the precise reason, I think the game will be a draw.
Both groups opted to play it safe in the home leg of the Dons. Rather than win and take the benefits, they preferred not to take unnecessary risks and fall back.
The defensive capabilities of the visitors will restrict the Shakers from scoring not more than one goal. Meanwhile, the historical advantage in h2h ties that favors Paul Tisdale’s men, as well as the psychological advantage of having won the reverse fixture will help them find the back of the net at the opposite end.
Expect a 1-1 draw.
