Competition: League One
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport
In what is a real six-pointer at the foot of the League One table, MK Dons will welcome Burton to Buckinghamshire on Saturday lunchtime.
Starting with the hosts, while MK Dons might have managed to find a much-needed boost when opening November, Liam Manning’s side have certainly come crashing back down to earth. Last seen crashing out of the FA Cup after getting hit with an action-packed 3-2 loss away at Portsmouth, the Buckinghamshire-based outfit have now lost three of their last four matchups across all formats. Likewise, opening up this weekend’s fixtures sat six points adrift of safety, the Whites have continued to show some rather glaring defensive issues this season. Suffering back-to-back 3-1 defeats at the hands of Barnsley and Derby last month, Manning’s men will know that they could face another tricky test on Saturday lunchtime. However, despite those recent struggles at the back, it should be highlighted that the Dons have got themselves on the scoresheet in seven of their previous eight attempts.
As for the visitors, while Burton might also find themselves at the heart of a relegation scrap, the Brewers are enjoying what has been a welcomed flurry. Last seen extending on their FA Cup run thanks to a 6-1 romp against non-league Chippenham, Dino Maamria’s men are unbeaten in each of their previous five outings. Likewise, with just a pair of defeats to their name since the start of October, the Staffordshire-based side have gained a reputation for their lively outcomes. With their recent success highlighted by back-to-back 2-2 and 3-3 draws against Plymouth and Charlton last month, Burton could be smelling the chance to spring an upset on their travels this weekend. However, it should be noted, with Saturday’s guests seeing each of their last four showdowns finish with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
