What would, quite rightly, have been described as a “potential banana skin” was safely navigated on Saturday afternoon.

MK Dons welcomed non-league outfit FC Halifax to the stadium:mk at the weekend and made sure there wasn’t any upset.

Goals from Izale McLeod (two of them, and him getting back among the goals), Shaun Williams and one in injury time from Brendon Galloway (the 17-year-olds first senior goal) made sure that a late Halifax goal couldn’t spark any form of comeback, with us running out 4-1 winners.

It wasn’t an easy game at all but that opening goal settled us down, and Gary Waddock knows this and attributes it as being “job done” really.

The assistant manager said: ‘It’s a case of job done really, we’re in the next round of the FA Cup so we’re pleased with that.

‘To get the first goal settles everybody’s nerves – they are always difficult ties. Everybody expects you to come out and be quite comfortable and win the game comfortably but that wasn’t that case.

‘You’ve got to give credit to Halifax for the way they went about their performance.’

A couple of goals from McLeod also saw him praised by Waddock, he was called upon to do a job and he did just that.
