Scunthorpe vs MK Dons
Venue: Glanford Park
Kick-off: Saturday 15th October, 3pm
Scunthorpe's one and only loss this season was a 3-1 away defeat to Port Vale. They went down to 10 men in the 55th minute and never seemed to recover, but that aside the Iron have an unbeaten record this season. Their home form has been what's cemented them as league leader.MK Dons were probably the better side in their 1-0 home loss to Port Vale last week but they were massively underwhelming in attack. They failed to take many chances, and thus extended their atrocious home run. Maybe Stadium MK is just too comfortable a ground to play at for visiting teams, because theDons are performing well on the road.
They’ve won six and drawn two of their nine road games this season, with only Northampton beating them, 3-2. They trailed 3-0 at half-time after a dire showing but did eventually have more than a few chances to pull it level at the death.
Match Predictions and Betting Tips
Scunthorpe can be backed at 5/4 with Betfair to keep their fine home form going, whilst the draw is available at 5/2 with Bet Victor and the away side MK Dons at best odds 23/10 with Unibet .
Scunthorpe have scored 15 goals in their six league one games so far and they've only kept one clean sheet, allowing just four. It's been a devastating combination, but they'll be tested more against MK Dons. The Dons have scored 12 themselves and allowed five, but I think it's that attacks that'll come out on top on a high tempo game here. Back Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals as our free betting tip, and a 2-2 draw as our correct score prediction at odds of 13/1 with William Hill.
I probably sound like a broken record, but Josh Morris is just having an incredible season. He has already registered 13 goals from midfield and despite this he is comfortably trailing the front men when it comes to anytime scorer odds once again. The value shouldn't be passed up. Back Josh Morris at 23/10 with Paddy Power.
