Rochdale's last taste of League One to be defeat

In the simplest form, neither MK Dons or Rochdale have anything to play for when they go head to head on Sunday. We suspect that MK Dons will run out winners though with a couple of factors convincing us of that prediction. Firstly, they're in better form than their visitors with three wins and a draw in their last four compared to a three game winless streak like Rochdale. Then though comes the carrot that is motivating the teams. Rochdale don't have one. They looked buried a few weeks back, then rallied and made things interesting but, still, fell into League Two. Rochdale's players will be dejected. MK Dons, however, can confirm a top 10 finish with a win. That would be a good season.

MK Dons to win with ease

We have just made the prediction that MK Dons will win the match against Rochdale; the next of our tips suggests they'll do so with a fair bit of breathing space. In MK Dons' last home game they thrashed Swindon – another relegated side – 5-0. It's not something that's been much of a habit for MK Dons this season with their last ‘big win' coming in February. Why then is it noteworthy? The opponent in question was…drum roll please…Rochdale.

Plenty of goals to end the season

With the last of our tips we turn our focus on the 2.5 goals market where we think there will be over 2.5 scored. MK Dons come in light over their last 10 at 2.3 with Rochdale comfortably above 2.5 at 2.9. Over the entirety of the campaign both teams sit above the threshold at 2.7 (MK Dons) and 3.0 (Rochdale). Finally, you have the head to head history. All of the last five meetings between the teams at Stadium MK have seen a minimum of three goals.

Rochdale to suffer yet more misery

Rochdale looked like they might make one of the most dramatic great escapes of all time for a few weeks during the back end of the season but, as they say, it is the hope that kills you. Their late flutter proved too little, too late and League Two awaits. Their suffering might not be over yet though with MK Dons eyeing a top 10 finish. Will this game be a must watch? Probably not. There will definitely be worse games to tune into though.
