Match Preview

Grecians short in attack Exeter boss Paul Tisdale faces a striking crisis with several of his forwards set to miss the visit of MK Dons. The Grecians were already without Daniel Nardiello, who is sidelined after being stretchered off before half-time in the Grecians` first league game, while John O'Flynn is recuperating from a knee operation. Richard Logan hobbled off in the Carling Cup victory over Yeovil to compound Tisdale's injury woes. Logan was replaced by Guillem Bauza, who grabbed a goal on his debut before he was also replaced as a precaution. Loan signing Nicholas Bignall is likely to lead the line after making his Exeter bow against Yeovil. "We have the benefit of Nicholas Bignall for a month, so let's be grateful and take advantage of that and then we will assess it a month's time," Tisdale told Western Morning News. MK Dons have no new problems ahead of the trip. Mathias Kouo-Doumbe remains the only absentee after the defender suffered ankle ligament damage during pre-season. Adam Chicksen is expected to continue filling in at right-back and keep Tom Flanagan out of the defence. Luke Chadwick was rested against Cheltenham in the Carling Cup in midweek and will hope to force his way back into the side. However, Jabo Ibehre could keep his place in the starting XI after scoring his second goal in as many games at Whaddon Road on Tuesday night. Goalkeeper Ian McLoughlin is back from international duty with the Republic of Ireland Under-21s and could replace Louis Bragg on the bench as David Martin's deputy.

Match Report

Ibehre leads dons charge MK Dons took full advantage of Exeter's lack of cutting edge to record a 2-0 win at St James' Park. Jabo Ibehre gave the Dons the lead midway through the first half when he capitalised on some sloppy Exeter defending to lash home a loose ball from 12 yards. Ibehre had already had one effort at goal by then, lobbing the ball wide of the far post after a mistake by Troy Archibald-Henville. Exeter had played plenty of good football in the opening 45 minutes and Nicholas Bignall missed their best chance on the stroke of half-time. He headed wide from six yards with the goal at his mercy after some terrific play by Liam Sercombe down the right wing. Exeter enjoyed long spells of possession in the second half, but a striker shortage meant they lacked an end product. There was plenty of probing from the Grecians with the Dons playing on the counter-attack and in the last minute Dean Bowditch beat Exeter's offside trap to run through and slip the ball under the goalkeeper.
