Wimbledon v York: Minstermen to edge close game

| 12.11.2012

Wimbledon and York are set to do battle for the third time in four matches and the Minstermen will be out for revenge at the Kingsmeadow Stadium after the south London club ended their six-match unbeaten run last time out.

Gary Mills’ men are 7/4 to book a place in the second round of the FA Cup at the struggling Dons’ expense and with only one defeat on the road all season they stand a good chance of doing so.

Their current record away from home has seen them go four games without defeat in which they have only conceded one goal.
Another York clean sheet here can be backed at 10/3 and, with Wimbledon’s 3-0 win at Bootham Crescent an anomaly in a run of 15 that saw them lose 11 times, this is worth a bet.

Another strong price of 11/10 says the visitors will open the scoring here – as they have done in eight of their 10 games on the road this season, with Wimbledon going a goal down in six of their eight at home – while an away win to nil offers great value at 5/1. Of the four wins York have recorded on their travels, three of them have been without conceding.

With five defeats from the last six on their own patch, the hosts have done little to justify their 6/4 favouritism here and evasive action should be taken in the betting stakes.

A great bet in this one is a York win by one goal. It pays out heavily at 4/1 and each of Wimbledon’s five home defeats this term have been by a single-goal margin. It has also been the deficit by which the visitors have prevailed by in their two most recent wins and, with draws York’s forte this term, if they can muster a win here it is sure to be a tight one.
