A stoppage-time free-kick from Jordi Gomez meant Jonny Williams’ MK Dons side slipped closer to the Championship relegation zone after a 3-2 thriller against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.
The Welsh midfielder played 61 minutes at Ewood Park and saw his team take a one goal lead into half-time before Blackburn got themselves in front in the second 45, however the Dons looked to have sealed a point when Alex Revell equalised with four minutes to go before Gomez’s late winner saw them leave Lancashire empty handed.
That leaves Karl Robinson’s troops a single place and three points ahead of Neil Warnock’s Rotherham United who occupy the final relegation place in the second tier.
Elsewhere Jerome Binnom-Williams made his third appearance for Leyton Orient on Tuesday as they missed out on the chance to move into fifth in League Two after a late equaliser handed Carlisle United a 2-2 draw. The left-back had previously kept two cleans sheets in his previous games for Kevin Nolan’s side who remain in the play-off spots.
At the other end of the table Jake Gray was powerless to prevent Hartlepool from losing 4-1 away to Bristol Rovers, a result that leaves them perilously close to the League Two relegation zone. Hopes had been high after they stopped Northampton Town’s run of nine successive wins by holding them to a goalless draw on the weekend before falling to defeat at the Memorial Stadium.
In League One Ryan Inniss returned from injury to take a spot on the bench for Port Vale’s 1-1 draw at Oldham Athletic on Tuesday night, and in the National League Reise Allassani played the final half an hour of Bromley’s 2-0 win against Welling United on Saturday, while on the same day Oliver Pain featured in a 3-3 draw against Grays Athletic for the Metropolitan Police.
