It looks set to be our biggest ever league gate (touching 22,000 if we get the usual amount of walk-ups).

I didn't realise how bad Brighton had been at s:mk. Three trips and not a goal to show for it. I'd expect that to be put right today. One goal will probably be enough to win it.

Prediction Dons 0 Brighton 2.

If we are actually playing Kay in CM the 13,000-15,000 Dons fans should just stay home.

Carruthers should be playing. Awful decision.

£12 for adults isn't it? Fair play.

Think you're paying £30 at ours.

Yep, £12 - cheapest I've paid since our L1 days. Third trip to MK now, and yes, just a goal would be a start please. Though ideally resulting in 3 points.

Family fun day, £12 for adults, £1 for kids. Not bad, at least there will be a massive crowd for it.

Can't fault the initiative, it's 20 quid at ours today, 30k expected.

Fair play actually. I also had us to lose so win win for the both of us.

Most forgettable first half followed by the most eventful second half, ridiculous game. Hemed's introduction changed everything - quality (if not slightly obvious) sub from Hughton.

Amazing scenes at the end.

I left when McFadzean got a red card but heard your lot were massively unsporting when we tried to take our penalty.

Also, I think you're keeper was lucky to not be sent off after we scored, but that's life.

Think we should have gone in at half time winning but all our shots went straight at your goalkeeper, also Maynard isn't very good.

Your bench was unreal yesterday, obvious it could change the game and it did, can't help but feel cheated though.

We were really flat first half, MK much brighter without being all that threatening. Like you say, knew we had the strength on the bench to give us some impetus after the break - wasn't expecting quite such an instant impact though.

Difficult to know where to start with the second half, so many incidents. Ours looked a pen, I genuinely missed the red card/elbow (replay doesn't show much), our disallowed goal looked very, very close, your pen looked soft, and yes our players knew exactly what they were doing delaying it. Not sure how we avoided a double yellow, all got very fraught and tense towards the end.

I did feel like we were the more hard done by with the officiating display, so would have felt similarly cheated had we not won, but that might be influenced a little by getting caught up in an anxious 7,000 away crowd with Albion-tinted specs on. We really should have been killing the game off at 2-1 and a man up though.

On a side note, George Baldock looked very good for you, very skilful and mobile. And what the hell does Powell look like these days?! Remember rating him as a young prospect back in L1, but he genuinely looks 3 x the size now. I've never seen an attacking midfielder with that body shape before.
