Player ratings Vs Bournemouth: Gary MacKenzie leads Dons to valuable point

editorial image

David Martin - 7 - Probably the busiest he has ever been in a Dons shirt without really needing to make many saves. Did well to tip over Barnard’s shot in the second half.

Adam Chicksen - 8 - No longer the inexperienced full-back, he kept O’Kane and Pugh quiet down the flanks with some tight marking.

Jon Otsemobor - 7 - Showed what Karl Robinson signed him for with a strong performance on his debut.

Gary MacKenzie - 8 - Continued his good early season form with another fine performance. Was under pressure for most of the game and coped brilliantly.

Dean Lewington - 8 - Stepping in to fill the void left by the suspended Antony Kay, the skipper looked strong at centre back, heading away ball after ball.

Darren Potter - 7 - Without much of a passing game to get going, he put his body on the line to defend the well-earned point.

Alan Smith - 5 - Put his side in trouble by throwing himself into a rash challenge and getting sent off early.

Dean Bowditch - 7 - A useful outlet as Dons looked to hit Bournemouth on the counter attack in the second half. Played a great ball to pick out Daniel Powell for the goal.

Daniel Powell - 8 - The dangerman once again, he caused havoc in the Bournemouth midfield as he brushed past players. And he was in the right place at the right time to net the equaliser.

Charlie MacDonald - 6 - Was the attacking sacrifice following Smith’s sending off, replaced by Luke Chadwick after 20 minutes.

Ryan Lowe - 6 - Without much of the ball, Dons couldn’t really get Lowe into the game. He chased a lot of long balls down to the keeper but saw little at his feet.

Subs:

Luke Chadwick - 7 - Nearly headed home a Bournemouth winner at the death, but mucked in when the side needed it most during the second half with some strong challenges and blocks.

Jabo Ibehre - 6 - Was the outlet for late clearances, holding the ball up and chasing balls down.

Jay O’Shea - A substitution to kill time at the end of the game.
