Milton Keynes Dons vs Blackpool
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 24 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Stadium mk (Milton Keynes).
Milton Keynes Dons have grabbed a massive survival lifeline over the last couple of weeks winning two league clashes on the bounce to get almost on the brink of the safe zone. Can the Dons maintain the hot run of form and make it three victories on the trot to escape the danger area after a long time? They should have a nice chance to do so hosting the bottom-half rivals Blackpool on Saturday afternoon in Buckinghamshire.
The Seasiders are in a much better position, but they are yet to save the third-tier status being only eight points above their counterparts in the league ladder. The head coach Gary Bowyer has reasons to be satisfied with the fighting spirit his men have out up in the most recent set of fixtures as Blackpool will head into this off the back of claiming four points in last two league matches. The Seasiders have only conceded a single goal in the process.
Nonetheless, Bowyer’s men will be on a serious test here given that the Dons have notched as many as five goals in last two wins over Rotherham United and Bury. Team’s top scorer Chukwuemeka Aneke has been particularly inspired last weekend as he was the one who bagged a brace in the2-1 win over Bury.
Milton Keynes Dons vs Blackpool: Head-to-head
Blackpool lead the head to head tie by a single win ahead of eight H2H clash with Milton Keynes Dons.
It is interesting to note that none of seven previous ties ended without a winner.
The Dons have, how veer, been more successful in matches at Stadium mk winning three and losing one there.
Milton Keynes Dons vs Blackpool: Prediction
Milton have only lost one of last five league games and we do find the value in backing them to avoid a defeat against the bottom-half opposition in front of the home crowd at the odds of 1.55.
We expect a rather more careful approach from both managers and backing the low-scoring contest is our alternative option at the odds of 1.66.
