AFC Wimbledon v West Ham (Kingsmeadow, Tuesday, 1945 BST, Sky Sports Main Event)

The Sky Sports cameras are at Kingsmeadow on Tuesday evening as Sky Bet League One outfit AFC Wimbledon welcome West Ham in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

This game has the potential for goals, although both sides will have to be patient as they look to progress to the next stage.

The Hammers have had an awful start to the season, despite a managerial change and numerous signings over the summer. They've lost against Liverpool, Bournemouth and Arsenal, conceding nine goals in the process.

Wimbledon may have had a tricky start themselves, but they did manage to wrap up victory in a tricky first round tie away at Portsmouth and picked up points in draws against Coventry and high-flying Barnsley.

What is of interest is the fact that in the four games they have found the net, they've had to wait until the second-half to do so in three.

That's why it's worth backing goals in the second 45 minutes here too, more specifically both teams to score in the second-half.

The Dons have a goalscorer in Joe Pigott who has started the season in decent form with three goals to his name, while Kewsi Appiah has his tally up and running too.

West Ham still possess a number of quality players, and they will see this game as one which can kick start their season, a great opportunity to wrap up that first win.

Boss Manuel Pellegrini is also certain that his attacking style of football will pay off, highlighting how they are eager for goals. After the 3-1 defeat to Arsenal, he said: "It is a style that this team will continue to play in the future and I am absolutely sure and I hope that the fans also continue to support because the team is in the current way and we are going to win more than we lose."

Pellegrini's side are odds-on 7/10 shots for victory in 90 minutes, but their tricky start so far might work against them, and Wimbledon could see the opportunity for a giant-killing.

The 17/5 available on the draw looks a decent price given the form that these two find themselves in heading into this encounter.

Score prediction: AFC Wimbledon 1-1 West Ham (Sky Bet odds: 11/2)

Best bet: Both teams to score in the second-half at 13/5


Odds correct at 1235 BST (27/08/18)
