There goes the whistle! Nervy at the end there, but MK Dons hold on to win for a second time in a week, and with it, they’re into the top half of the table!

93 mins: GOAL - Swindon get one back

A deep ball into the far post from McEachran, I think it’s Blake-Tracey with it to narrow the margin

Stoppage time

Six minutes to be added on

85 mins: GOAL! That must wrap it up

Great link-up between Alex Gilbey and Cameron Norman on the right-hand side allows the skipper to power his way to the by-line, he hits the ball across the face of goal and George McEachran, sliding to block the cross, hits him and goes into the net.

Dons make three changes during the celebration: Dean, Payne and Robson come off, Leko, Eisa and Devoy come on

84 mins: Dean almost through

Well won by Robson in the centre circle, sends Dean through on goal but he gets it stuck under his feet

Attendance: 7,821

80 mins: Close call

Oh Hepburn-Murphy somehow heads wide from inside the six-yard box.

This game is on a knife-edge

79 mins: Dons should be high and dry

Huge stop from Mahoney to deny Alex Gilbey, who surely has to score. Payne got through, slipped, got back up, played it across the goal for the skipper who let it run across him, but Mahoney was rapid off his line and he makes a vital stop to keep it at 2-1

77 mins: Both sides mucking in now

It’s turning into a right good game, this one now. Both sides at full pelt now, Dons seeking a goal to put it out of reach, Swindon desperate for another equaliser.

Some big tackles flying in, some really nice football being played in the midfield too. Payne and Dean almost combined for the home side, but Payne is seeing a lot of the ball again now

71 mins: MacGillivray saves

Wasn’t one to grab the highlights, but the Dons keeper needed to be alert to Hepburn-Murphy’s header at the back post.

67 mins: GOAL! O’Hora with a beauty!

Oh wow, what a finish from the centre back! Winning the ball on halfway, he drags play up with him, gives it to Payne, but continues his run, gets the ball back and with a gorgeous left-footed finish, bends it into the net!

Dons are back in front!


64 mins: Dons having to ride the storm

Swindon have their tails up after that equaliser. Dons don’t look immediately like collapsing as we’ve seen in some games, but the visitors are the ones on top now

59 mins: GOAL - Swindon are level

What a finish from Jake Young to draw Swindon level. McEachran’s ball across the edge of the box looked relatively aimless after Austin stepped over it, but Young, only just on the pitch, unleashes an unstoppable effort to leave MacGillivray picking the ball out his net

56 mins: Dons make a change

MJ Williams replaces Conor Grant

Swindon have also made a change - Jake Young is on for Tom Clayton

54 mins: Harvie into the book

After seeing George McEachran go into the book a couple of mins ago, Daniel Harvie now gets a yellow for a late challenge in the centre of the park, he’s livid but it was definitely a yellow card

52 mins: What a challenge

Huge tackle from Tucker to deny Hepburn-Murphy and break up the Swindon attack. O’Hora had tried but alas, he was not getting past Tucker!

50 mins: Brilliant football

Oh what a wonderful move from Dons. Tomlinson and Payne involved, sliding Gilbey in to pick his spot in the bottom corner but Mahoney does really well to get a hand to it, diving full stretch to his right to put it behind for a corner


Swindon restart the game, chasing the game after Max Dean’s first-half strike

HALF TIME: MK Dons 1-0 Swindon Town

A good half for Dons, coming in ahead at the break as Max Dean slots home his sixth goal of the season six minutes before the break.

Very even, neither side really on top but a good showing from Mike Williamson’s men.

Stoppage time

We’ll get two minutes added on at the end of this half.
