Key Forest Green vs MK Dons prediction and League One tips

The New Lawn Stadium will host one hell of a clash on Saturday as the survival battle in League One intensifies.

MK Dons to win

With a fragile one-point lead over Forest Green a postponed game yet to be played, MK Dons seem confident they’ll be in front of the Green at the end of the season. However, they have to win this one if they want to book a spot in the 2023/24 campaign as well.

Coach Mark Jackson shouldn’t have too many issues in getting the full set of points in the Forest Green clash as his side did win three of the four head-to-heads. The only game that didn’t go MK Dons’ way was a 1:1 draw on the 15th of September, 2018.

Under 2.5 goals

We’ll be quite surprised to see plenty of goals being scored on Saturday as three of the four games between Forest Green and MK Dons ended with under 2.5 goals. Two of them barely had one goal each. The only clash that was a tad more interesting to watch was MK Dons’ narrow 1:2 win at the New Lawn Stadium back in 2019.

Over 9.5 corners

Four of MK Dons’ last five games in League One ended with over 9.5 corners. The only one that didn’t was the Plymouth Argyle clash a couple of weeks ago. Seeing as both teams have laughable defenses this season, it’s very likely that we’ll see plenty of shots going on which is a great stepping stone for our Forest Green vs MK Dons prediction.

Forest Green vs MK Dons: match preview & facts

As the survival battle between Forest Green and MK Dons commences, we feel that you might benefit from a brief match preview of the game.

Forest Green

The Green are singlehandedly the worst League One team this season. Yes, MK Dons have a fragile one-point lead but at least the Dons have a game yet to be played and they could enhance the lead by four points. Forest Green have five victories, six draws, and 15 losses in 26 games and that’s definitely how you remain a League One team for long.

MK Dons

The Dons will do their best on Saturday as the one-point lead over Forest Green is less than convincing. With six victories, four draws, and 15 losses, we feel that the Dons are underachieving as they certainly have the required arsenal to be a mid-table team this season if they focus.
