Sunderland vs MK Dons Match Preview
Sunderland made their way past Sheffield United and into the League Cup 8th Finals midway through the week, where a single goal from Max Power proved enough for an upset at Bramall Lane. They now host MK Dons hoping to build on the performance and their four-match unbeaten streak across competitions, looking for points to keep up with the top of the table.
Black Cats have beat Accrington Stanley (1-3) just after the International break and while they’ve only shared the spoils with Rotherham (1-1) and Bolton (1-1) since, we feel they’re in a great mood. Jack Ross’ men have been scoring goals on the regular and finally kept a clean sheet earlier this week, which will surely have them very confident.
MK Dons have, on the other hand, seen Liverpool (0-2) snatch what ended as a comfortable win with a rotated line-up midway through the week and now have a three-match losing streak to bounce back from. More worrying than their League Cup exit will surely be the fact they’ve struggled to create and convert their chances.
Indeed, Dons failed to find the net in three games in a row, where they also saw the points go to Ipswich Town (0-1) and Southend (0-1) despite rather solid challenges. They’ve been snatching points on the road but the contest still hardly comes at the best possible time for them.
With that in mind, we’re now backing Sunderland to secure the points at Stadium of Light and we’ll go for a Home win at 3/4 with bet365 – which has caught the eye of many as a generous banker bet despite the fact MK Dons promise to be no sitting ducks.
We thus don’t feel we’re in for a very one-sided contest and rather hope to see the Black Cats turn another narrow contest their way, as we also go for few goals with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 6/5 with . Both sides have seen such clashes on the regular lately and we now hope for more of the same.
