The latest league one fixture of the season saw Milton Keynes Dons on their travels at the weekend.

MK Dons travelled to Sixfields to take on Coventry City on Saturday afternoon, not only did they come away from this with the three-points in a 2-1 win but they are now back in the play-off hunt.

Such are the injury problems at the club several youth team players were in the MK Dons squad, most were involved, with Karl Robinson enjoying an ‘interesting game’ with the win putting MK Dons back into play-off contention when that ship looked to have sailed.

The MK Dons boss told the media: ‘We’ve got the three points and we’re back into contention, and I’m pleased with the team. It was an interesting game, and we’re closer to the play-offs now.

‘It’s funny how a week in football can change things. I don’t know how we’re still there, honestly!

‘I’ve got five subs and four youth-team players in the squad; I’m winging this one quite well! But the see-saw swings back in our favour.

‘Our performance last week deserved more, and this was an interesting game.

‘We always have interesting games at Sixfields and this was a good day with results going our way.’

Dele Alli ‘wonder goal’ got MK Dons of to a good start and gave them the lead before Carl Baker equalised for Coventry, he then missed a penalty before Izale McLeod came off the bench to score with his first touch to secure the win.

Robinson once again paid tribute to Alli, who continues to impress branding him one of the ‘best players in the league’.

He added: ‘I think he’s certainly proved he is one of the best players in the league.

‘He was all over the pitch, and his physical components are scary. It’s a wonder goal.
