Bristol Rovers vs MK Dons Preview – 12/10/2019 League One
Bristol Rovers are challenging for the play-offs and credit must go to Graham Coughlan. The Dubliner thought he’d missed out on the opportunity to take charge of the club, but he’s certainly had the desired impact and his team appear to be going from strength-to-strength. They are unbeaten at home and have netted the first goal in four of those six games. All three of their victories have come against sides below them in the table although they did hold high-flying Wycombe to a goalless draw.
Only four sides have taken more points from home matches this season, and the well-organised hosts will be tough to breach once again.
MK Dons are struggling for form at the moment, and haven’t won since easing past Blackpool at Bloomfield Road five games ago. They’ve lost four of their five encounters against sides in the top ten and could struggle to find a way past Bristol Rovers. Rhys Healey is their main threat this season although Jordan Bowery is a useful outlet from the bench.
The Dons have failed to score in four of their last eight matches, and have netted just once in their last four. Confidence is low at Stadium MK and this is not a great time to come up against in-form opposition.
Jonson Clarke Harris to Shine Again?
The striker has been a revelation under Graham Coughlan and continues to impress at League One level. The forward is clearly enjoying life at Bristol Rovers and he could add to his tally here.
He’s netted seven times so far this season and is clearly enjoying playing alongside Liam Sercombe and Ollie Clarke, who have both claimed two assists each.
The 25-year old is happy to shoot from anywhere and has a real eye for goal. He’s scored five times at home and he should be able to delight the home crowd once again. He averages 2.7 shots per game at home (2.4 overall) and will get plenty of opportunities in this one.
Jonson Clarke Harris is 5/4 with Betfair to score anytime in this game. You can get £100 of free bets to use on this weekend’s action.
Keeping Things Tight
With the Dons struggling for confidence in front of goal, this could be an opportunity for Bristol Rovers to keep another home clean sheet. They’ve recently prevented Rotherham and Lincoln from getting on the scoresheet and they could be able to keep today’s visitors at arms length. MK Dons have scored just a single goal in their last four, although they do tend to score on the road.
Both Teams to Score? No is 13/10 with Bet Victor
