MK Dons to Win

Milton Keynes has won ten times this season which, in most circumstances, would get them a bit further away from the relegation territory, however, they also have the third-most losses in the league at 21. Morecambe hasn't won a game in their last six outings losing three times with the same number of draws.

Both Teams to Score – No

MK Dons vs Morecambe Lineups, Team News, and Preview

MK Dons

The team from Milton Keynes is just above the relegation zone at the moment hoping to avoid any further slip-ups in the coming weeks that would jeopardize their season. There are only two teams in League One who have lost more games than MK Dons, but the reason why the hosts on this day are outside the danger territory is that they have a double-digit number of wins to put them in a decent position moving forward. Warren O'Hora and Joshua Kayode are injured while Zak Jules is suspended.

Predicted lineup: Cumming, Watson, Tucker, Lewington, Kaikai, McEachran, Maghoma, Harvie, Grant, Grigg, Eisa.

Morecambe

The visiting team is two points behind their next opponent which means they are one of four teams currently in the relegation zone. It has been a tough season for Morecambe who has the second-lowest number of wins this season at only seven. The last-placed Forest Green have won five times and are almost assured of dropping down the leagues. For Morecambe, there are no health concerns at this moment in time.

Predicted lineup: Ripley, Bedeau, Rawson, Simeu, Gibson, Weir, Shaw, Love, Mayor, Crowley, Niasse.

Starting lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Mo Eisa

There are not many players from Sudan earning their paycheck in English lower leagues, but Mo Eisa is one of them. The 28-year-old has been a standout performer for MK Dons this season making 23 appearances and leading the team with six goals. He is also one of their best goal-creators with three assists.
