MK Dons got relegated from the Championship last season, taking only 39 points in 46 matches of the season with 39-69 goal difference and finishing on 23rd place of the league with 24 teams. The start of the season on League 1 was quite mediocre for the team as they gained only seven points in four matches and sit on the seventh place with 5-4 goal difference. MK Dons knocked out Newport in the previous round of the tournament, 3-2. We should note that MK Dons won all three of their away matches so far, beating also Shrewsbury and Rochdale, both 1-0.
Reading and MK Dons played two head-to-heads last season. Reading drew their home match and lost reverse fixture to MK Dons 0-1. Considering opponents results and history of their meetings we can expect the teams to continue their streak of low-scoring matches in this games.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 goals.
