The game looked like a repeat of last season's 0-0 draw with the Franchise, but we came alive in the second half with the strong wind in our favour. MK Dons didn't look up for a fight and once the first goal went in, there was no real danger of them scoring, even when they got into our area. Good to see Brown and Leadbitter back together, constantly making runs and actually many accurate crosses this time. Not sure if I would pick Broadbent over Sweeney, but he was fine today, so what do I know! Linesy missed a couple of shots which were way over the top, normally he's more accurate, but his corners today, especially in the second half, were extremely accurate and should have resulted in more goals. There were a couple of efforts cleared off the line as well as the goals. Nicholls and Gaffney looked a strong partnership today and neither gave the MK defence a moment's peace.
Any weaknesses this tome? Ollie Clarke in the first half, but excellent in the second and Stuart Sinclair seemed out of place on the wing, having said that they were both 100% committed, so no moaning from me.
Possibly our best home performance so far this season. (In my humble opinion!)

First half was a bit mute, possibly due to the Geoff Dunford celebration of his life. But second half we completely dominated but we needed that bit of luck to gift Tom his first goal for the club. Gaffney's goal was a great turn and finish. Nice win for the Dunford family. It was nice to see MK fans joining in the applause for Geoff. 😁
Not especially exiting but a good team performance as we ground out a win. All the back 4 were solid though the full backs were very reserved holding back a touch on the usual cavalier overlapping. Sinclair did a good spoiling job in midfield well supported by the others,sercombe caught my eye. Nichols and gaffney were skillful and a threat throughout. Mk dons were technically neat and tidy but lacked urgency and were predictable. There £1,000,000 signing agard came on in the 2nd half but didnt cause too many problems.
