FULL TIME: MK Dons 3-2 Northampton Town

MK Dons go through with a 100 per cent record, home draw in the next round. It finishes 3-2 to MK Dons

Stoppage time

Wow, where have they plucked seven minutes from?

84 mins: GOAL! What a goal!

Corr what a strike from Dawson Devoy! The Irishman has picked out the top corner with an absolute beauty!

Chase Medwynter comes on to replace Matt Dennis for the closing stages

82 mins: GOAL - Simpson converts

The striker sends Kelly the wrong way to equalise.


81 mins: Penalty to Northampton

Clark-Anderson brings down Neo Dobson in the box, just left a foot in. No option but to give a penalty there.

78 mins: Another change

Great game for Keon Lewis-Burgess, really impressive in the centre of the park.

He's replaced though by Josh Clark-Anderson

76 mins: Great chance

Corr what a ball from Wood, whipping it into the near post which Silver is agonisingly close to converting. Ilunga then follows up bit his shot is blocked before Monthe hammers it clear

71 mins: Stewart has a go!

Well that certainly would've been something! Anthony Stewart urged to shoot from range by the Dons fans behind the goals, but from fully 30-yards, puts it into the stand where those fans are sat.

66 mins: Dons make changes

Joel Anker and Dean Lewington make way for Charlie Stirland and 16-year-old Rian Silver

64 mins: GOAL! Burns gives Dons the lead

A great goal from MK Dons to make it 2-1.

Matt Dennis has been a little anonymous so far, but he's held the ball up really well to turn it around the corner for Burns to thrash it home!

56 mins: GOAL! Waller equalises!

He's been the best Dons player on the pitch in my opinion, and now he's got a goal to reward that.

Devoy's corner, Waller turns it goal-wards and it takes a bit of a deflection to pass Thompson but he won't care a bit!

It's 1-1

55 mins: Burns flickers into light

Good stuff from the Irishman there, he gets lucky with a couple of deflections but he barrels his way into the box to win a corner

52 mins: Haynes wide again

Joel Anker can breathe a sign of relief after he gives it away cheaply to Haynes, who takes it on into the box, but fires wide of the mark

48 mins: Silly stuff from Dons

A Northampton corner causes havoc for Dons defensively. Kelly flaps at it, Lewington juggles with it rather than clearing it and it puts Ilunga into trouble. Eventually Northampton throw it back into the mixer, this time Kelly gathers a little cleaner


Back underway at Stadium MK

HALF-TIME: MK Dons 0-1 Northampton

A relatively entertaining game so far, Manny Monthe's header the only goal of the game when chances have been very scant

45+1 mins: Kelly saves

Good stop from Simpson, bending one towards the bottom corner which Kelly does well to tip wide

45 mins: Corner

Devoy's corner is a decent one but keeper Max Thompson easily gathers it.

Two minutes to be added on

44 mins: Decent effort

Good spell of football from the home side to result in their first strike of the game, Anker finding space on the edge of the box to take aim but it's deflected over

36 mins: GOAL - Northampton lead

Simple as you like - corner to the back post and Manny Monthe powers a header past Kelly into the top corner
