Sunderland vs AFC Wimbledon Match Preview
Sunderland host AFC Wimbledon for their Matchday 5 clash on Saturday afternoon in great shape after beating Rochdale (1-2) with goals from Aiden McGeady and Charlie Wyke in another exciting contest earlier this week and extending a three-match winning streak across competitions.
Black Cats have beaten Accrington Stanley (1-3 in League Cup) and Portsmouth (2-1) in two exciting occasions beforehand, now building on a five-match unbeaten streak despite conceding on the regular. They’ve struggled to keep it together at the back but are yet to really see it costly, which does promise another exciting clash in the making here.
AFC Wimbledon have seen quite a contrasting spell of form early in the new campaign, where they were scoring goals but failed to capitalize – with four losses and a draw seen in five competitive outings so far. Indeed, they have just one point to their name with seven goals conceded along the way, which will feel worrying ahead of the trip to Stadium of Light too.
Dons have seen a League Cup exit in the hands of MK Dons (on penalties after a 2-2 draw), only holding Accrington Stanley to a 1-1 draw and seeing a 2-1 loss to Ipswich since then. They will surely need more to cause an upset now but we feel they’re far from their best form at this point.
We will now back Sunderland to capitalize on that in another great game of football as we stick our necks out for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score, which combines to an enticing 12/5 with Paddy Power and catches the eye of many value seekers.
We thus hope for goals and we’ll also back a high-scoring contest on Saturday, where Over 2.5 Goals FT at 17/20 with William Hill and looks a great approach to the fixture as well – especially after seeing both sides scoring and conceding on the regular.
