Competition: League Two

Market: Plymouth win

Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport

Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the League One table, Plymouth will host MK Dons on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Plymouth might have endured somewhat of a November blip, the Greens have come roaring back in some style. Only continuing to impress almost everyone across League One once again this season, Steven Schumacher’s men now find themselves sat in pole position to clinch a third-tier return in 2023. Last seen earlier in the week when laying down another marker as they secured a 1-0 victory at home against Wycombe, the Pilgrims have now won each of their last four matchups across all formats. Holding a four-point buffer over the chasing pack, Plymouth will be confident of laying down another marker this weekend. It should also be noted, Schumacher’s high-flying squad have remarkably won 14 of their previous 15 showdowns at Home Park – a run that stems all the way back to August 10th.

As for the visitors, making an immediate return to losing ways earlier in the week thanks to a 2-0 loss away at Peterborough, MK Dons find themselves at the heart of a relegation scrap. Making the trip to Home Park on Sunday afternoon sat in the drop zone, it appears that Mark Jackson’s side are facing a real uphill struggle in 2023. Along with losing four of their last six matchups across all formats, the Whites have also claimed just a pair of victories from their previous eight attempts. With that run stemming all the way back to November 22nd, MK Dons have also gained a reputation for their glaring struggles on the road. On a run that is highlighted by a 4-1 hammering against Bristol Rovers last month, MK Dons have lost four of their last five matchups outside of Buckinghamshire.
