MK Dons - Swindon Town Betting Preview: Ranger to strike for Robins again

Our experts are backing both sides to find the net in Milton Keynes and tip the ex-Newcastle man in particular to score in League One action this weekend
MK Dons host Swindon this weekend, with both teams currently in decent form. Two points separate the sides in League One, with the Dons occupying the final play-off position after five games and Swindon back in 10th position.

Both managers will have their sights set on the top six this season, so it should make for an interesting match up at Stadium MK.

MK Dons come into this match unbeaten in the League this season. The only side to defeat Karl Robinson's men were Sunderland, who scored three in the last four minutes to avoid an upset in the Capital One Cup.

Robinson's side recorded a fantastic win at Sheffield United last time out in the league and he will hope his side can start turning more of their draws this season into wins. bet365 price the home side at 7/5 (2.40) to take three points.

Swindon Town had midweek off after getting a bye in the Football League Trophy. Last time out they thrashed Crewe at home 5-0, which followed up a fantastic win in the Capital One Cup away at Championship side QPR.

Mark Cooper's side have yet to pick up a point on the road in the league this season and bet365 price them as the underdogs at 23/10 (3.30) to take all three points. The same firm offers the draw at 23/10 (3.30).

Both teams haven't struggled in front of goal in recent weeks, with MK Dons netting nine in their last five, but Swindon have eclipsed that, scoring nine in their last three. With the sides goal hungry at the moment, expect this match to be no different. The both teams to score bet is a generous 5/6 (1.83) with bet365, a price well worth taking advantage of.

For those looking for more value, Swindon's summer signing Nile Ranger is well worth investing in. Despite a whole host of problems off the pitch, Ranger has started to find his feet at Swindon, scoring two in his last two. On both of those occasions he opened the scoring and, at 13/2 (7.50) with bet365, this is certainly worth a small investment for him to net first again.
