AFC Wimbledon vs Rochdale Prediction

The Dons are continuing their miserable run in Championship and are currently the only team other than Bolton to remain winless. Their previous three games in a running have seen them suffer defeat, the last of which was at the hands of Peterborough away from home in a fiercely fought 3-2 scoreline.

Rochdale, on the other hand, are yet to recover from their decline in form and are sporting a dismal two-match losing streak under their belt at the moment. The away side have not picked up a win in any of their last seven games in all competitions either, three of which were on the road.

Although both the teams are struggling to get back on their feet, AFC Wimbledon have the upper hand in the clash this weekend. All three points that the hosts have garnered so far have come from their matchups on home soil.

Furthermore, the home team have not lost against this foe in any of their last three meetings here, and even came out on top with an impressive 3-1 scoreline in one of them. Taking into account that the guests have been recording back to back defeat in their last two outings, the safest punt would be a double chance favoring the clash to either end in a draw or for AFC Wimbledon to taste success.

In addition, three out of the four goals that the hosts have scored at home this season have come in the opening forty-five minutes of the game. Considering that four out of the previous seven away goals for Rochdale have also come in the first half, by all means, expect at least one team to find the back of the net before the break.
