27/01/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Stadium MK V Predicted Score:2 - 1

Away Coventry City

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

MK Dons will be keen to impress their new manager and to take their minds off their League One woes. Meanwhile, Coventry will be looking to continue on their good form and mount a decent cup run. Coventry are 5/1 to win to nil while MK Dons are 4/5 to score the first goal.

2 We fancy:

Both teams to score at 10/11. It’s a cup game and both sides will be going for it and seeing the tie as winnable when compared to some of the other teams still in the competition.

3 It's a long shot, but…

33/1 for Coventry/ MK Dons for the half time/ full time bet is an interesting punt and it’s a game that could see the advantage swing from one side to the other.

Manager Robbie Neilson left the club due to mutual consent after the 2-1 defeat to Northampton on the weekend and his successor, Micciche, has never held a first team managerial post. He’ll be without Chuks Aneke, who was sent off against the Cobblers.

Milton Keynes Dons vs Coventry City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

MK Dons host Coventry City with a new manager in place in Dan Micciche

Just eight places separate MK Dons in 21st in League One and Coventry City, who are sixth in League Two. Coventry knocked out Premier League side Stoke City at home in the last round while the Dons had a good away win over Championship outfit Q.P.R. Both sides should see this Fourth Round tie as winnable and also as a great opportunity to get themselves in the hat for a lucrative  game against one of the big sides in the next round.

At 11/10 MK Dons are favourites to win this tie but they are on a poor run of form that has seen them win just four times in the last fifteen games and two of those wins came in the FA Cup against Maidstone United and Q.P.R.

Coventry are 13/5 to knock out another side from a higher division like they did with struggling Stoke City and are having a good season in League Two, with nine wins from their last 15 matches.

The draw is 9/4, out of the total of eight games in all competitions between these two sides, two of them have ended up as draws.

17/2 is the price for MK Dons to win this game 2-1 while Coventry are 21/1 for the same scoreline.

Predicted Score: Milton Keynes Dons 2 - 1 Coventry City
