MK Dons were afforded a rest at the weekend when their fixture with Bradford was called off, though, given their rather unflattering league position, it’s points they need, not days off. It’s now ten matches since the Dons, who’re seven points off safety, tasted victory in League One. It appears that relegation is the most likely outcome for Dan Micciche’s men come May.
Unlike the hosts, Rotherham are only thinking about promotion. The Millers may have tasted their first defeat since early December on Saturday, but they remain one of the best teams in the division. Paul Warne’s men have been strong at both ends of the pitch for some time and they’re fully deserving of their current position inside the top six. Against a floundering MK Dons side, the visitors will almost certainly fancy their chances of regaining the winning thread.
After their defeat at the weekend, this match against a struggling MK Dons side represents a big chance for Rotherham to bounce straight back. Even at a fraction above even-money, Rotherham look an excellent bet to regain the winning thread.
In truth, a disparity in quality should be visible right from the off at Stadium mk on Tuesday night. As they continually prove, MK dons are lacking in quality a both ends of the pitch; they’re struggling to both create chances and score goals; while they continue to be undone at the back. In contrast, Rotherham are one of the best sides in the division (at both ends of the pitch) and they have several players who wouldn’t look out of place in the Championship.
MK Dons’ woes in the final third continued last time out, as they failed to find the net against Bristol Rovers on home soil. Dan Micciche has so far failed to improve the productivity of MK Dons since taking the reins just over a month ago. Despite having played six games under the new boss, in which they’ve scored just three goals, the Dons still really struggle to stamp their mark on games. Keeping this in mind, it’s not at all hard to envisage them faltering against a Rotherham side who’ve done a more than reasonable job defensively.
Unlike the Dons, Rotherham have had few problems finding the net this season. Only two teams have scored more goals than Paul Warne’s men and Saturday was the first time that the Millers had failed to score in the league since September. Even then, Warne’s men played reasonably well offensively, and on another occasion, they probably would’ve scored multiple goals. Quite simply, the visitors, who’ve managed the second-highest number of shots on target in League One this season, have far more about them than MK Dons do.
Punters shouldn’t be put off the Rotherham’s defeat at the weekend, the visitors are capable of really hurting teams like MK Dons and they’re well worth backing to come out on top on Tuesday night.
