Game:AFC Wimbledon vs Swindon Town
Venue: Cherry Reds' Records Stadium
Kick-off: Saturday 15th October, 3pm
AFC Wimbledon showed their quality at present on Sundaylast weekend when they led Oxford 3-0 at half time. Despite
an attempt at a come back, Wimbledon defended well the second half and held on for a 3-1 win. Only Sheffield United have beaten them in their last
10 games.Swindon started the season in good form and it looked as if the pundits could be wrong about them, but already we're starting to see the cracks in their foundation. Their far from deep squad have had a few injury problems, and they're starting to really struggle at home.
They've only won one of their last eight games, with their last four points amidst this run of poor form coming against two sides just below them and in the relegation zone. Swindon have had some problems defensively, so they should be more than tasted against an AFC side that have scored two or more in five of their last six home games.
Match Predictions and Betting Tips
AFC Wimbledon are 11/10 favourites to win this game with Coral but that price is currently on the rise. The draw can be backed at 5/2 with William Hill whilst Swindon to win away can be backed at best odds of 27/10 with Bet365.
With all respect, I think most people would have felt that if anyone were going to struggle coming up then it would have been Wimbledon. Bristol Rovers are a League One club at the least, and Northampton are riding a massive wave of momentum. AFC Wimbledon snuck up and have added little to their squad, but they're adapting very, very well to life in League One.
Swindon Town came within 90 minutesof the Championship just a year and a half ago and since then have struggled. A
late season run pulled them away from danger and towards the playoffs last season, but such success feels a long way off at the moment. Swindon
are looking like a side who are starting to struggle. Back AFC Wimbledon at 11/10 with Coral.
Three of Wimbledon's wins have come by a 2-1 margin this season, and no one has really blown Swindon away despite their struggles, and they have been better on the road. But I still think they'll come up short when all is said and done. There's just two much of a gulf between these two sides at present.Back a 2-1 AFC Wimbledon winat odds of 7/1 with Bet Victor.
AFC Wimbledon have been scoring freely at home and now they're threatening to take that form on the road. Taylor, Poleon and Elliot all look in solid form at the moment, but Lyle Taylor's three goals have all come in his last five games.Back Lyle Taylor to score at odds of 7/4 with Sky Bet.
