CALLS ON CRYSTAL BALL AGAIN
“However I'm fuming about the penalty I don’t know why he’s given that, Antony Kay has clearly got the ball.
“It was a really interesting game and we've got the three points again which takes us even closer to those play-off places. The see-saw swings back in our favour.”
The Dons started on top as Dean Lewington’s dipping free-kick fell just the wrong side of Joe Murphy’s righthand post.
Coventry slowly grew into the game and Jordan Spence hacked the ball off the line after Nathan Eccleston fired goalwards.
But Alli’s moment of magic came in the 39th minute, thumping past a fullystretched Murphy.
Baker drilled Coventry back on to level terms after the break but two substitutes combined for the Dons’ winner, McLeod tucking away a deft lob following Giorgio Rasulo’s pinpoint pass.
And with 20 minutes to go, Martin dived to his right to beat out Baker’s spot kick and Coventry’s last threat – but Sky Blues manager Steven Pressley insists the Dons were there for taking.
“I thought in the second half, we played really well,” he said. “We created a lot of good opportunities in the second half, and the penalty miss at a crucial time had a big bearing on the game.
“We pressurised them
the really high, and we worked towards the transition of the game, but probably what let us down was the final pass.
“I genuinely believe that with the exception of one moment they had caused us no problems in the second half and that’s an extremely disappointing aspect of the game.”
