Millwall v MK Dons Past Meetings

This will be the sixth meeting between these sides, with all five previous meetings coming in League One but these seasons clashes have been the first between the two in seven seasons.

The reverse fixture at Stadium MK earlier in the campaign was an entertaining 2-2 draw – the visitors blowing a two-goal lead with all four goals coming in a scarcely-believable nine minute spell in the first half.

The previous three meetings between the sides ended in victory for the London-based side.

Millwall v MK Dons Stats

The Lions have the fourth strongest home record in the division (35 points) while despite the Dons struggling in 14th in the standings, they have the sixth strongest travelling record in the league (23 points).

Millwall v MK Dons Team News

Millwall have a fully fit squad to chose from but Lee Gregory, Shaun Williams and Mahlon Romeo are all one yellow card away from a suspension.

MK Dons are without long-term absentee Scott Wootton (cruciate ligament rupture) but otherwise have a clean bill of health.

Reason for Millwall v MK Dons Bets

Neil Harris’ side have kept an incredible nine clean sheets in a row and conceded only once in their last 12 matches and are currently on a 16-match unbeaten run across all competitions.

The Wall are particularly strong at home, with nine wins and two draws from their last eleven fixtures in London so have to be overwhelming favourites for this one again.

Furthermore, the Dons have failed to score in three of their last six outings and up against the current most formidable defence in England, the chances of them finding the net at all in this fixture are slim.

Millwall have scored only nine goals in their last eleven games themselves so won’t blow the Dons away –  no side has conceded fewer goals on the road than Robbie Nielson’s men (14).

Millwall to win at 11/10 is the most sensible outcome in terms of players and recent form and appears to be a relatively safe bet, while the hugely tempting 66/25 on the game to contain only one goal or less is the bet of the game – the two sides, particularly Millwall, are defensively very strong and their recent defensive records are excellent.
