MK Dons will launch their play-off bid in winning form thanks to a second-half strike from Keanu Marsh-Brown which sealed a 2-1 win at Oldham.The teenager clinched Dons' ninth away victory of the season when his shot took a wicked deflection off Oldham defender Aidan White.Adam Clayton had a key role in the opening goal on 28 minutes, hitting a through ball which Oldham's Carl Winchester deflected to Angelo Balanta for a cool finish from 14 yards.Balanta's strike was quickly followed by an equaliser as Winchester seized possession outside the box and unleashed a fierce drive into the top corner for his first senior goal.But Balanta headed against the bar from Lewis Guy's cross and Dons regained the lead from 50 minutes when Marsh-Brown's 20-yard shot glanced off White and spun into the far corner.Oldham manager Paul Dickov made a late appearance from the bench to end his playing career at the age of 38.
