Our Prediction:

Blackpool will win

Blackpool – MK Dons Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

Graysons men have drawn 3 of their last 4 league games and a 3-2 defeat at fellow promotion hopefuls Coventry last time out has them arriving for Saturdays game under a degree of pressure, with putting an end to the current winless streak clearly the objective. Nonetheless, after winning their first 3 games, Blackpool have hit a rocky patch and come into this game desperate for a win.

In recent times this has been a low scoring encounter with only one goal scored in the two league matches during the 2017/19 season. That strike came in a 1-0 home win for the Seasiders with the away leg ending 0-0. In eight games overall, Blackpool have win four, there have been two draws and MK Dons have won three times.

Dele Alli, who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur, is the most famous footballer to have played for the Milton Keynes Dons, netting 18 goals in 62 appearances for the club in the league. The Dons are one of the youngest clubs in England as they were founded in 2004, but they are well known for youth development. English attacker is the clubs all-time top goal-scorer, netting 62 goals in 165 appearances for MK Dons.

Our prediction for this League 1 match:

Blackpool made a flying start to the season, but they are on a four-game winless run in the League One ahead of the visit of Milton Keynes Dons. The Seasiders are determined to return to winning ways in the English third tier, but the game against MK Dons will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.

With popular boss Simon Grayson back in charge, long term boardroom turmoil finally resolved and supporter spirit restored, hopes were high for Blackpool coming into the new campaign and early signs are certainly promising. Indeed, the side have made a good start to the season, currently sitting 6th with 12 points from 7 matches and the Seasiders will be confident in pushing for a play-off spot over the coming months.

After 6 matches, the visitors have 9 points to their name and have already shown they can be a competitive outfit at this level, but consistency is a bit of a worry, even with the campaign in its infancy. Indeed, the team have won and lost 3 times so far in the action weve seen and back to back defeats to Peterborough and Accrington Stanley prior to a home win over arch rivals AFC Wimbledon certainly showed theres still work to be done.

Cards & Corners

Meanwhile, after a dramatic last day promotion from League Two last season, Milton Keynes Dons have adapted fairly well to life back in League One. Whilst some have had the side pencilled in as candidates for back to back promotions, staying well clear of a relegation battle is a more realistic objective and early signs would suggest theyll be capable of doing exactly that.

Currently at the helm is Simon Grayson, who returns to Bloomfield Road after departing for Leeds United in 2008. THE OPPOSITION The 2019-20 season is Blackpool's 111th season in the EFL, while it's also their third consecutive season in Sky Bet League One after the Club earned promotion into the third tier in 2016-17. Grayson replaces the outgoing Terry McPhillips who resigned as manager in July after one season in charge of Blackpool.

We can see both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Blackpool by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Blackpool v MK Dons match are shown here - as well as up-to-date odds. Should be an interesting one. We believe that MK Dons should be able to score a goal against this Blackpool lineup, but that is unlikely to be enough to prevent defeat.

Blackpool are sitting in the play-offs berth in the League One standings, but they are only three points clear of their Saturdays rivals. Paul Tisdales charges quickly bounced back from back-to-back defeats to the likes of Peterborough United and Accrington Stanley, with the team beating AFC Wimbledon 2-1 in their last league match. The Dons are tough to beat at home, but given their poor away record in the League One, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the Seasiders party at Bloomfield Road.

Blackpool vs MK Dons Prediction & Betting Tips

However, causing an upset at Bloomfield Road will be much more of a challenge we feel and going for them to keep up their winning streak feels like a wild longshot at this point. Dons have scored a high total of 12 goals in five trips this term and we feel theyll do their bit in making this a real thriller.
