Competition: League One

Market: AFC Wimbledon win

Odds: 5/4 @ 888sport

Looking to widen their buffer away from the drop zone this weekend, AFC Wimbledon will welcome Swindon to an empty Plough Lane on Saturday evening.

Starting with the hosts, despite opening April with those back-to-back defeats at the hands of Fleetwood and Plymouth, AFC Wimbledon have bounced back in an eye-catching fashion. While The Dons might have found themselves tipped as a leading relegation scrapper earlier in the year, they have found a route out of the drop zone and the mood in their camp should be at a recent high. Knowing that victory on home soil this weekend can widen their buffer over the bottom-four to five points, Wimbledon laid down yet another marker at Plough Lane in midweek. Managing to build off of that stunning 5-1 romp away at Accrington Stanley last weekend, Mark Robinson’s side landed a shock 3-0 win against play-off outsiders Ipswich on Tuesday night.

As for the visitors, while AFC Wimbledon might be enjoying a real boost in their charge for survival, the same cannot be said for a struggling Swindon. Really failing to build off of that much-needed 1-0 win away at Bristol Rovers last month, The Reds find themselves four points adrift of safety and now tipped as one of the leading relegation contenders. Facing what could be a stern test on their travels this weekend, Swindon were last seen in midweek putting in a hugely worrying display. Eventually hit with a 2-1 defeat against a rock-bottom Rochdale, John Sheridan’s side have lost each of their last four League One contests on the spin. Suffering back-to-back defeat away from The County Ground, we’re backing a similar home win for Saturday’s hosts this week.
