AFC Wimbledon vs Fleetwood
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 8 February 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kingsmeadow (London).
Wimbledon have performed well at home over the course of the last several weeks, in spite of their overall struggles. Meanwhile, Fleetwood have been going through a dismal run – just two wins from the past thirteen games. Coupling the fact that they are on the road as well, we are inclined to pick out AFC Wimbledon as the favorite this weekend.

AFC Wimbledon vs Fleetwood Prediction
Wimbledon had lost on the road the last match-day, against Accrington. The scoreline was 2-1 in favor of the hosts, and the road defeat has put pressure on the former to make amends in this upcoming home game.
Meanwhile, Fleetwood won at home the prior game week, against Doncaster. Once again the scoreline was 2-1 in favor of the home team, and it was their first win in the last nine matches. It was a desperately needed win for Fleetwood, whose playoff ambitions have taken a serious hit due to their form.
On the other hand, Wimbledon were unbeaten in ten of their last eleven home fixtures. With the added support of the home crowd as well, the team should be able to put forth a good performance. It also deserves mention that the team has performed well overall in h2h clashes.
In fact, seven of the last eleven overall h2h wins, and four of the prior six at this venue had gone to Wimbledon. They had also scored twice or more in four of the past six h2h meetings here. As such, expect the home team Wimbledon to avoid a loss at the least.
However, Fleetwood are on a two-game winning run against this opponent (including the reverse fixture). They are also placed much higher in the table, and are chasing a spot in the playoffs as well. Finally, they have scored goals in 11 of their last 13 road trips. Likely, expect the BTTS bet to bring good returns this Saturday.
