AFC Wimbledon Prediction

Wimbledon currently find themselves propping up League One as they’re seven points adrift of safety in the third tier but they’ll put their league woes aside for this Saturday’s clash with Millwall in the 5th round of the FA Cup for the right for a place in the quarter-finals.

Although league form has been poor this season, Wimbledon recorded a timely 1-0 win away at Walsall during the week away at Walsall which will have given Wally Downes’s squad a much needed confidence boost ahead of this potential money-spinning tie.

Wimbledon’s journey to the 5th round of the cup began back in November when they recorded a 1-0 win away at Non League Premier side Haringey Borough in the 1st round which took The Wombles to National League outfit Halifax where they registered a 3-1 win away at The Shay.

A 3rd round win away at League One side Fleetwood Town 3-2 finally earned today’s hosts a home tie in the 4th round against Premier League club, West Ham, with many people believing this would be the end of the line for the valiant Wombles.

However, the magic of the cup (and Wimbledon) prevailed to win 4-2 to set up this 5th round tie with Millwall.

 

Key-Facts – AFC Wimbledon v Millwall

  • Wimbledon have had to win 3 FA Cup ties away from home on the trot
  • Millwall have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches in all competitions
  • Millwall have lost their last 4 cup ties away from home

 

Millwall Prediction

Things are getting tight down near the bottom of the Championship as Millwall sit fifth from bottom and just three points ahead of third from bottom club Rotherham United who are in league action this Saturday while Millwall play their 5th round tie at Wimbledon.

Millwall’s overall form has certainly improved in recent weeks as The Lions have lost just once in their last five matches in all competitions which includes a 3-2 win over Everton in the 4th round of the FA Cup along with points against Middlesbrough, Rotherham United and Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship which has helped the visitors just about keep their heads above water in the relegation battle at the bottom of the division.

But away from home, Millwall have managed just one win from their last 16 away matches in all competitions which was a 3-2 win at bottom club Ipswich Town, while on the road in the cup, Millwall have lost their last four ties on the trot with defeats at Southend United, Bradford City, Tottenham and Rochdale.

Betting Tips Verdict

Both teams really have nothing to lose but will both be keen to get their names in the hat for a potentially lucrative draw in the quarter-finals. Both teams to score here looks a reasonable option.
