Swindon Town 1 - Milton Keynes Dons 0

National Hockey Stadium, Milton Keynes

Attendance: 6,797 (950 Swindon Fans)

Swindon Town 1, MK Dons 0

Swindon Town get three valuable points by beating promotion rivals Milton Keynes Dons 1-0 at the National Hockey Stadium.

With MK Dons loss to Swindon it is the first time in 6 games that Milton Keynes had lost a game.

Lee Peacock's goal on the 31st minute mark gave Town an early lead which sent the Swindon fans into raptures.

Just 4 minutes later MK dons appeared to catch a break as they were awarded a penatly on the 35th minute. Luckily for Swindon fans, goalkeeper Phil Smith was able to save the spot kick taken by top scorer Izale McLeod. McLeod will be annoyed as this was his 2nd missed penalty in as many games.

MK dons looked to have levelled later in the game however the shot taken by Izale McLeod on the 75th minute was ruled offside.

Both teams had several chances including a Lee Peacock effort that hit the post.

Town would manage to hold on to the 1-0 lead and take 6 points from MK Dons in both meeting's this season with Town's promotion rivals.

Star Player

Michael Timlin - This man is incredible and needs to stay at Swindon as long as possible. Hardly puts a foot wrong.

Perhaps the ref was saving your teams embarressment of missing 3 penalties in one game. Is it my imagination or does MK Donut games revolve around penalties, and opposition players being sent off. Good luck to you and your team.
