MK Dons vs Gillingham Prediction
Winless in eleven fixtures across all competitions and on a 6-match losing streak do not expect the Gills to challenge for any points in this fixture.
To add to that the hosts have lost just once in their previous five home fixtures. Considering the above I have backed Milton Keynes Dons to seal a comfortable win this Saturday.
Despite being in shocking form Gillingham has had very few issues with opening the scoring in recent fixtures. Having scored in four consecutive fixtures and nine of their previous eleven away games, I have backed goals from both teams in this fixture.
Furthermore, the Dons have conceded the most goals by teams within the first third of the league table.
