Note: These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing this preview.

Both teams will score

Our first pick is goals on both sides of the pitch. These teams found the net in all their last five games. And while we expect the hosts to struggle against MK Dons, home advantage should motivate Steve Evans men to find the net at least once in this game.

Goals galore

Our second pick is lots of goals on matchday. The visitors are better placed to win this game based on recent stats and if that is the case, they should do it with at least a goal margin. A correct score of 2-1 in favour of MK Dons means more than two goals is possible.

MK Dons to score first

We are tipping MK Dons to open the scoring in this game. The visitors have a stronger defence than Gillingham hence unlikely to concede the first goal. Gillingham’s defence is not very bad but their scoring record is poor.

At home, Gillingham has 1W and 1D so far. The hosts defeated MK Dons in the last meeting in a game that ended 3-2. The result in the last encounter and the fact that Gillingham won all the last two home fixtures should motivate the hosts to go all out for a good result on matchday.

MK Dons

MK Dons have kicked off the season in relatively good stead. The visitors currently sit 5th on the table, a position that gives them a competitive advantage in this fixture.
