Stephen Gleeson cleared James Dunne’s goal-bound corner off the line on 60 minutes and Boro wasted two good opportunities to equalise before the break.
Matt Ball had a tame effort saved by Ian McLoughlin after Marcus Haber dispossessed the Dons keeper and found him unmarked seconds after Bamford’s opener.
Roberts had a shot saved and fired wide two minutes before halftime after the Dons defence struggled to clear Dunne’s free-kick.
MK Dons manager Karl Robinson said: “It’s a perfect way to end, our fans sang their hearts out and we performed very well.
“It’s a case of us looking forward to next season, our fans were magnificent today and the players showed how much it meant to them by throwing their shirts into the crowd at the end.
“We want to build on this year, we are a very competitive team and we want our good players to stay.
“Where do we go from here? I’ll enjoy the win, have a pint, and on Monday start planning for next season.”
