The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

A hugely en­joy­able game be­tween two at­tack­ing sides with un­doubted pro­mo­tion po­ten­tial that did im­mense credit to League One.

City had two tire­less front-run­ners in Wil­bra­ham and Agard, who con­stantly de­nied the Dons back-line time on the ball.

The vis­i­tors protested the penalty decision, but at best McFadzean was ill-ad­vised in get­ting so close to the back of Agard, giv­ing ref­eree Oliver Lang­ford an easy decision to make when the striker went down.

MK Dons had chances to score in the first half, even though Flint was a dom­i­nant pres­ence at the heart of the home de­fence.

The Dons will feel they played well enough to merit at least a point from the game, but City had a street­wise el­e­ment and are look­ing strong in all de­part­ments.

On this ev­i­dence it will be a sur­prise if ei­ther club fails to sus­tain a strong chal­lenge for Cham­pi­onship foot­ball next sea­son.
