Match Preview

Chadwick doubtful for Dons MK Dons may check on Luke Chadwick ahead of the visit of Yeovil. Chadwick hurt a knee in the warm-up against Hartlepool on Saturday but played through the pain barrier for 70 minutes at Victoria Park before being substituted. He will be assessed but fellow midfielder Darren Potter will continue to miss out because of illness. Stephen Gleeson is likely to go straight back into the Dons' midfield after completing a two-match suspension while defender Gary MacKenzie is also available again after his four-game ban. Charlie MacDonald remains a doubt with the knee injury that ruled him out against Hartlepool while fellow forward Dean Bowditch is rated 50/50 to face his former club after an ankle knock sidelined him at the weekend. Yeovil will be without the suspended Kieran Agard. The forward serves the final match of a three-game ban following his dismissal in the 3-2 victory over Colchester on February 18. Full-back Nathan Jones will also be absent for the Somerset side with an ankle injury, as manager Gary Johnson looks for his first victory on the road since returning to Huish Park on January 9. Otherwise, the Glovers are injury and suspension-free for the trip to stadium:mk. Johnson told the Western Daily Press: "We have got to perform for 90 minutes and then maybe we will see what a very good team we are, but at the moment I can see why they lacked confidence in the early part of the season."

Match Report

Dons pay penalty MK Dons forward Dean Bowditch missed a penalty against his old club as 10-man Yeovil hung on for a shock 1-0 win at stadium:mk. Bowditch saw his 65th-minute spot-kick saved by Sam Walker as Gavin Williams' first-half goal ensured a fourth win in five games for the Glovers, who had Dean Parrett sent off on the stroke of half-time. Both teams ended the match with 10 men as Dons midfielder Stephen Gleeson was shown a straight red card in stoppage time for violent conduct. The Dons controlled the first half and Jay O'Shea curled a good early chance over the bar before Adam Chicksen fired narrowly wide after beating three Yeovil defenders. But Williams put Yeovil ahead against the run of play four minutes before the break, collecting Lawson D'Ath's mis-hit shot before beating Dons keeper David Martin at his near post from a tight angle. Parrett was given his marching orders in the 45th minute after picking up his second booking in quick succession for a needless foul on Shaun Williams. Bowditch then had his penalty well saved by Walker after his cross had been handled in the box by Luke Ayling. The Dons piled forward late on but Daniel Powell and Mathias Doumbe both missed good chances before Walker denied Alan Smith with a brilliant point-blank save at the death.
