MK Dons v Swindon: Dons to exploit unroadworthy Robins

| 07.09.2013

MK Dons are unbeaten in their first five League One games of the season and the hosts can keep that run going against a Swindon side who’ve suffered two league defeats on their travels already.

Only Premier League Sunderland have beaten the Dons in eight competitive games in the first throws of the season and even then, the League One outfit were only a whisker away from taking a famous scalp in the Capital One Cup before a disastrous three-minute spell.

This is just one of the reasons why the hosts should be backed at 23/20 to prevail in front of the Sky Sports cameras when these sides hog the limelight due to the international break.

Weighing favourably in the ‘back the home win’ camp is Swindon’s poor record when visiting this ground in recent league meetings.

On their last three visits to Bedfordshire the Robins have been beaten, either side of their 2011/12 League Two exodus.

While there’s no doubting Mark Hooper’s visitors will have gleaned confidence from knocking QPR out of the League Cup and subsequently thrashing Crewe at home, away defeats at Peterborough and Shrewsbury in their first two League One road trips offers evidence they’ll trip up here.

Karl Robinson’s Dons have been significantly helped in their long-going quest for promotion by the arrival of Chelsea youngster Patrick Bamford on loan for a second spell.

The 20-year-old striker has already stuck four goals away and he’s a very handsome 6/1 to open the scoring here considering he’s achieved that feat three times already this term. Bamford is also 2/1 to notch anytime.

Having score exactly twice in four out of their last five games as well, the 6/5 on MK Dons to register over 1.5 goals in the match looks to be another profitable bet to ponder.
