Walsall vs AFC Wimbledon Match Preview
Wimbledon have seen the gap to the rest of the Championship table with three consecutive losses now behind them, travelling to Walsall for their home clash against Burton Albion desperate to close it. They have been scoring goals on the road and Wally Downes will want to build on the positives.
Dons have also beaten Fleetwood Town (2-3) and West Ham (4-2) in two thriller FA Cup clashes and the Cup success will still be a boost to their confidence, despite the obvious struggles to project it to their form in the league. Wimbledon will need to capitalize on the goals scored to do so, which promises an exciting contest!
Walsall will have plans of their own but we’ve seen them far from impressive lately, where five points earned in nine League One outings and FA Cup exit in the hands of Bolton (5-2) hardly feel as much to boast at this point – despite their ambitions to build on a mid-table spot.
Saddlers have been scoring goals on the regular but their defensive slip-ups proved costly time and time again, as Dean Keates’ solutions at the back just fail to hold water. They’ve conceded 23 goals on those ten occasions and finding the stability could prove essential, but we don’t see them making it happen just yet.
With that in mind, we now stick our necks out for Wimbledon to keep up their rather solid streak of performances on the road, as we go for a Double Chance – Draw or Away win at 4/6 with BetVictor. We’ve seen them bag two wins and a draw on their last three trips across competitions, which feels like further evidence for such a bet.
We do feel they’ll have to find the net to do so and with that in mind, we’re going for a Yes on Both teams to score at 10/11 with Betfred – which feels like the best approach to the fixture! Both sides have been scoring and conceding numbers of goals on the regular and this one should prove a thriller in the making as well.
