The clash in League One between two teams with the different ambitions, Crewe Alexandra host Milton Keynes Dons.
Crewe have only two points more than the first team in relegation zone and they desperately need points in this match in order to move up in the safer zone.
They are playing very poor on away ground, but their home performance is not such bad (5-3-5). In the last 9 home matches in all competitions they lost only once.
The main problem for home side is their defence because they have the second worst defence in League one.
Crewe Alexandra will be without Ryan Colclough (0/0 f), Lauri Dalla Valle (3/0 f) is doubtful, while Uche Ikpeazu (8/2 f) and Adam Dugdale (18/1 d) both left the club.
On the other side, MK Dons stand at the 3rd position and they need points in this match in order to stay in a race for promotion.
They main strengths is their attack. Milton Keynes Dons have the best attack in League one, scored 54 goals on 26 matches (they scored average two goals per match), so it will be very hard for home side to secure their net.
Milton Keynes Dons will be without an important defender Ben Reeves (20/3 d) and Mark Randall (7/0 m), Devante Cole (2/0 f) is doubtful, while their coach Karl Robinson is suspended.
The previous matches are very interesting. In the last two season they played 3 for 3, while in the first part of the season MK Dons beat them, so if they really play 3 for 3, this match should win the home side.
Coincidence or not, we will see, but I won’t be surprised if Crewe beat them.
However, both teams need points, the worst defence against the best attack. I expect an open football and at least three goals in this match.
Crewe vs MK Dons Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.80 (Bet365)
