Loan star Phillips on target again
Goals from Richard Cresswell and Matt Phillips lifted Sheffield United into fourth place after a 2-1 home win against MK Dons, who had Adam Smith sent-off late on.
The visitors enjoyed a good spell when Jabo Ibehre flicked a near post effort wide and Stephen Gleeson saw a couple of shots deflected off-target.
But Cresswell gave the hosts a 22nd-minute lead, firing low past Martin after finding himself in space on the left-hand side of the penalty area.
The Blades finished the first half strongly with Phillips having a shot saved and Harry Maguire heading narrowly wide.
Gleeson struck the equaliser for the Dons in the 52nd minute with a fine shot from the edge of the area.
But Phillips put the Blades back in front in the 67th minute, scoring from close range after Billy Clarke had produced a surging run to the byline and played the ball across the face of goal, while the Dons were reduced to 10 men in the 83rd minute when Smith picked up a second booking.
