AFC Wimbledon vs Peterborough Prediction

AFC Wimbledon failed to salvage even a point in their last clash on the road after Portsmouth got the better of them with a 2-1 scorecard. Despite finding an equalizing goal post the restart in that latter clash, the hosts soon fell out of their stride and conceded the winning ten minutes before the end of regulation time.

Disappointingly, they were also reduced to ten men in the closing stages of the game after Scott Wagstaff was shown a second yellow. With just one win from their past five fixtures, the hosts are deservedly twentieth in a cluster of twenty-three.

Meanwhile, Peterborough have been hit by a sharp decline in form as well. The guests are without a taste of success in their previous five clashes on the trot and have garnered no more than two measly points from a possible fifteen. Their most recent clash, in particular, saw them play out a far from exciting stalemate alongside Gillingham at home.

Be that as it may, Peterborough are unbeaten in seven of their past thirteen outings. It is also worth mentioning that AFC Wimbledon have been erratic at home this term. They have dropped points in eight of their past twelve fixtures here, and are currently winless in their past two.

Taking into account that it was also the visitors who secured the bragging rights in the reverse fixture, AFC Wimbledon are sizing up to be the underdogs in this one.

However, the hosts have shared the spoils in two of their previous three meetings with this foe here. Considering that the guests are going through a rough patch at the moment as well, back a draw no bet chance, just to be on the safer side.

Furthermore, AFC Wimbledon have been keen on getting their names on the scoresheet, at home. They have found the back of the net at least once in each of their past ten games here.

On the other hand, the visitors have kept a clean sheet in just one of their previous eight outings in the third division. Hence, it is certainly well within reason to expect both teams to have their scoring boots on this weekend.
