MK Dons vs Crawley Town Betting Tips : MK DONS TO WIN

Few would have predicted that Milton Keynes would be swept off the pitch by Crawley Town in a shocking 0-3 defeat during the first leg of the playoff semi-final, but now the Saturday hosts are left with nothing but to attempt something that will be remembered throughout history, orchestrating one of the most remarkable comebacks.

Before embarking on their mission to erase the daunting three-goal deficit, Mike Williamson's squad will need to shore up their defense sigfinicantly, as they have exposed serious vulnerabilities in the backline in recent weeks, shipping an alarming 14 times across the last four competitive fixtures and ending six out of eight contests with 3+ goals conceded.

Despite facing an immense mountain to climb in the weekend's second leg, the Dons maintain a positive outlook on their chances for a potential comeback, buoyed by their strong record on home turf, where they have come out on the winning side of 14 occasions and ammased 47 points from 23 home matches, with only promoted pair Wrexham and Stockport were superior to them in front of their crowd this term.

After teetering on the brink of relegation to the fifth division in the previous campaign, scraping by with just three points above the dreaded dotted line, Crawley Town have unveiled a completely new identity that has pleasantly surprised everyone throughout this year's League Two edition, and now they are just one step closer to arranging a final showdown at the renowned Wembley Stadium against either Crewe or Doncaster.

While they have made it four triumphs in their previous six matches in rivals' territory, scoring three or more times in three of those successes, a glance at their recent record at Stadium MK doesn't look so promising, as the Red Devils have stumbled to defeat in three concecutive visits to this venue, remaining scoreless in each of those disappointments.

Fully aware of their situation, Milton Keynes will unleash all their weapons from the initial referee's whistle as they attempt to stage a memorable comeback. With the Dons ready to unleash their offensive prowess in the last third, this tactic might offer Crawley chances to exploit them with swift counterattacks, and our prediction is that the Red Devils will clinch a Wembley berth despite their setback on Saturday.

MK Dons team news

Even though they were blown to smithereens in the first leg of their League Two playoff semi-final, coach Mike Williamson should field an unchanged eleven, hoping his troops will be significantly better this time around.

The only absentee for MK Dons will be Matthew Dennis, as the 22-year-old striker recovers from an injury picked up in mid-March when he scored a brace in his side's 3-1 win over Crewe.

Crawley Town team news

Having seen his side see off MK Dons 3-0 in the first leg and take a big step towards a place in the playoff final, boss Scott Lindsey is likely to name the same starting XI as in mid-week.

Despite scoring Crawley's third goal from the bench, Ronan Darcy could once again start as a substitute, while the creator of Tuesday's triumph Liam Kelly will keep his place in the starting line-up.
