All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for MK Dons v Crewe Alexandra are shown below - plus the latest betting odds.
MK Dons will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 1-0 League One victory against Doncaster Rovers.
The only player to score from MK Dons was Daniel Harvie (76').
It has been all too rare in recent times that MK Dons have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that The Dons have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 8 goals in the process.
Looking at the pre-match facts, MK Dons:
- have not emerged victorious against Crewe Alexandra in their last 3 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their last 3 home league matches.
After being beaten in their last game against Hull City in League One competition, Crewe Alexandra and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The only player to score from Crewe Alexandra was Chris Porter (66'). Josh Magennis (71') and Mallik Wilks (90') scored for Hull City.
It is worth noting that Crewe Alexandra have been starved of goals in their past 6 games, contributing the unsatisfactory return of just 4. In those matches, The Railwaymen have also seen the collective goal tally of their opponents equal 9. Such a trend won’t necessarily be sustained here, however.
Head to head
Looking over their prior head-to-head clashes stretching back to 21/01/2014 shows that MK Dons have won 2 of these and Crewe Alexandra 3, with the number of drawn games being 1.
A combined total of 17 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 11 of them from The Dons and 6 created by The Railwaymen. That is an average goals per game value of 2.83.
The previous league game between these clubs was League One match day 3 on 26/09/2020 and the score finished Crewe Alexandra 2-0 MK Dons.
The referee was Seb Stockbridge.
Team News: MK Dons
There’s just the sole fitness concern for the MK Dons manager Russell Martin to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group of players. Ben Gladwin (Knee Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Crewe Alexandra
Crewe manager Dave Artell has multiple availability issues to deal with. Josh Lundstram (Ankle Fracture) and Oli Finney (Fractured Leg) will miss out on this game.
We’re inclined to think that Crewe Alexandra are certainly able to breach the defence of this MK Dons team, however it may not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We can see a close game with a 2-1 advantage for MK Dons by the conclusion of the game. Should be a good one.
