MK Dons v Swindon Town Preview, League 1, Saturday September 7th 2013.

The MK Dons have started the season in decent enough fashion and have accumulated 9pts from their opening five games which has seen them win twice and draw three and manager Karl Robinson’s side head into this game on the back of two victories on the bounce.

Swindon Town have only managed to secure 7pts from their opening five matches which have consisted of two victories, one draw and two defeats, but manager Mark Cooper’s side also head into this game on the back of a victory and confidence will no doubt have been restored to the players after their impressive 5-0 thrashing of Crewe Alexandra last weekend.

MK Dons Team News:

Dean Bowditch and Daniel Powell are the only two players unavailable for the hosts as both players continue to recover from respective injuries. Paul Bamford and Izale McLeod are expected to lead the attack up front for Karl Robinson’s side.

Swindon Town Team News:

No reported injuries or suspensions for Mark Cooper’s side so expect to see the same starting eleven that trounced Crewe 5-0 last time out with Ryan Mason looking to add more goals to his superb hat-trick scored in that game last weekend.

Who Has The Advantage?

Saturday lunch time’s meeting at the Milton Keynes Stadium in Buckingham will become the 16th time these two sides have met each other over the years. From those previous encounters MK Dons have won six times, Swindon Town have won six times and there has been three draws.

Recent meetings show MK Dons with a clear advantage though having won four of the previous five matches with Swindon Town only managing to secure one victory, none of the previous five games has seen any draws happen.

Average Goals Per Game?

34 goals have been scored in the previous 15 games played before which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.26 suggesting this game on Saturday afternoon might only see one or two goals scored.

MK Dons v Swindon Town Match Betting Odds Market.

MK Dons are the clear favourites with the online bookmakers to win this game with a current best price of 13/10 from BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) available which should see plenty of interest given their domination over Swindon Town in recent years and having the all important home advantage.

The Draw has not been a result that has happened often when these two sides have met previously so some would say one is due and with both sides heading into this game in decent form there is no reason why the spoils can’t be shared come Saturday afternoon and at a current best price of 12/5 from Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) I can certainly see some shrewd punters getting on.

Swindon Town absolutely hammered Crewe Alexandra last weekend and that sort of result will have every player in the squad brimming with confidence as they prepare for this game so the visitors could prove to be the value play here at odds of 5/2 from Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) current only offer.

MK Dons v Swindon Town Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

MK Dons have a decent record at home and it is going to take a decent side to beat them in front of their own fans, but with the way Swindon Town beat Crewe Alexandra last weekend another performance like that would certainly see manager Mark Cooper’s side go extremely close and at their current price they do look way overpriced for me and well worth a small interest.

The goal statistics don’t expect many goals to be scored in this one, so the goals market could also be a place to take a look at when searching for some additional betting investments as this does look like being a very close game which based on both teams for so far this season could go either way on the day.

First Goal Scorer bets are always worth a small punt when the game is being broadcast live on television and with Swindon Town’s Ryan Mason having scored a hat-trick last weekend in that 5-0 victory over Crewe, he could be worth a look in this market to open the scoring.
