MK Dons vs Peterborough – Posh to take big step towards final

| 14.05.2011

Peterborough have been free-scoring in League One all season and a continuation of this can see them secure the advantage in the first leg of their play-off semi final with MK Dons.

Match Odds

Posh scored 106 goals in the regular League One season, which was 20 more than any other team and shows the difficulty of the challenge facing the MK Dons.

Peterborough also have a good away record at the MK Dons, losing on just two of their last seven visits in all competitions.

It is 7/4 in the League One odds that Peterborough beat the MK Dons and take a giant step towards gaining a third career promotion through the play-offs.

Similar success has not been so forthcoming for the MK Dons in the play-offs as they have been eliminated in the semi finals on their last two appearances.

However, their home record has been good of late, winning five of their last eight games at the stadium:MK and losing just the once.

The MK Dons are 6/4 to beat Peterborough, with the draw that will make for an intriguing second leg available at 23/10.

Both Teams To Score

Peterborough’s scoring proficiency has already been mentioned above, but the MK Dons are also no slouches in front of goal, particularly on their own patch.

The Dons found the target in all barring one of their home games in League One this season and because of this 1/2 looks respectable that both teams are on the scoresheet after the opening leg of the semi final.

Craig Mackail-Smith finished the regular season as the top scorer in League One and there is no obvious reason to side with anyone else in the scoring markets.

Mackail-Smith is 5/1 to open the scoring against the MK Dons and 11/8 to find the target at any point within the 90 minutes.

A £30 stake on Peterborough beating the MK Dons 2-1 would return £270. New customers can sign up here for a free £30 bet.
