Past Swindon Town v MK Dons meetings

Indeed, they have excellent form in this fixture – winning each of the past four fixtures and eight of the last ten.

Swindon Town v MK Dons Stats

Swindon have won each of their last two games by a 1-0 scoreline and have won four of their last eight in the league, following on from a run of just one win in 13.

Being on the road seems to suit Robbie Nielson’s side – their away form is the 9th best in the division, despite them lying 14th overall, with six wins and 24 points away from Milton Keynes.

Swindon Town v MK Dons Team News

Swindon have no fresh injury worries or suspensions for the tie.

Central defender Scott Wootton (knee ligaments) is a long-term absentee for the Dons, while George Baldock and Darren Potter are both one booking away from a suspension.

Reason for Swindon Town v MK Dons Bets

The Dons have built up an eight point gap between themselves and the drop zone with only six matches remaining and barring a late collapse, that should be enough to secure their status in the third tier for another year.

With that in mind, it’s only natural that intensity and focus levels may take a small dip but that certainly won’t be the case for Swindon who despite their recent victories, are still stuck in the drop zone.

The Robins are three points from safety but wins over Millwall and Fleetwood Town means they are the team with momentum and with everything to play for – factors which are more important now compared to any other point in the season.

Nicky Ajose has scored more league goals (11) than any other player in either of the two squads, and is in form having netted five goals in his last seven outings, including the vital late winner against Fleetwood.

Odds of 21/10 for Swindon’s win do not reflect their recent good form and the market has undervalued them, while 7/4 is a hugely tempting price for the Nigerian forward to continue his recent goalscoring streak.
